As we get closer to the start of a new school year, Forest Hills is working toward the safe and healthy return of students to face to face instruction. As with all schools in the state of Oregon, we are watching the metrics published by the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) to determine what model we will use. As soon as the metrics show us that face to face learning is safe and permitted, we will return to that model. Until that time, Forest Hills will engage in comprehensive, distance education.
Here are the metrics for the past few weeks. All three need to be green for three consecutive weeks in order to have students return to face to face instruction. (Updated 9/22/2020)
|8/30 – 9/5||9/6 – 9/12||9/13 – 9/19|
|Oregon State Rate||4.6%||5.6%||6.2%|
|Washington County Rate||3.6%||4.5%||5.5%|
|Per 100,000 cases||31||26*||30.3|
*For Kindergarten – 3rd grade face to face instruction, this number must be at or below 30 for three consecutive weeks. For 4th-8th grade face to face instruction, this number must be at or below 10 for three consecutive weeks.

Based on updates provided by the Oregon Department of Education that allow for limited, on-site instruction, each level of learners at Forest Hills will be able to be on site for a short period of time each week. The following documents outline the schedule for each level of learners.
