Classes started for some, Wednesday

LA GRANDE – Even though the La Grande School District anticipated on beginning classes for 7th through 12th grades Wednesday, 9th through 12th were canceled.  Due to the boiler system not operating at the La Grande High School, there was not heat for students and faculty.  Wednesday the boiler was worked on and operating.  Classes for in-person instruction will return for the upper class students today. 

(Information from the La Grande High School)  The boiler has finally been fired up, and we are beginning to see heat return to the buildings.

This is a last reminder about our return to in-person learning tomorrow, Thursday January 28. Our B cohort will begin tomorrow, which is students with last names starting with L-Z. On Friday, our A-K students will attend.

Please remind your student to show up at the correct entrance they’ve been assigned for their 1st period class. This information was mailed home to all families and is found on the LHS website. Students will need to show up at 8:50 or after, since doors will not be opened before then. Period 1 begins at 9 a.m.

Students should bring their school materials in a backpack along with a water bottle. Please also make sure your student is wearing a mask appropriately and is not feeling ill with any symptoms of COVID-19.

All students should review their school email, since important new work will be provided there and in your Google Classrooms. “A” day students, you should be checking those sources for work to complete.

Each student will be screened at the entrances for signs of illness, and will then be helped to move straight to their first period class. Reminders for 6 foot spacing, face masks, hand sanitizing, and other key health safety practices will be given regularly and often so we can keep our students and staff safe. Please remind students to dress warmly in this cold weather. Lastly, if you have to utilize busing to transport your student to school, you will need to contact MidCo Bus Company at (541) 963-6119 as soon as possible.
