Response to Governor Brown’s extension of school closings for the remainder of the school year

Dear Trinity Family,

Late on Thursday, March 12, we heard for the first time that Oregon Public Schools were going to be closed through March 31.  In response to this directive, Trinity began remote education on Monday, March 16. This decision was later extended to April 28, and Trinity’s teachers continued our remote education plan, helping our students to continue to learn and support families as they navigate this new normal. Today it was announced that Governor Brown, in the interest of continued public safety, has decided that Oregon Public Schools will remain closed through the end of the school year.  You can read her proclamation here:

Governor Kate Brown Extends Coronavirus School Closures Through End of School Year

While we can still report that we have no known cases of the virus in our Trinity community, we will support these ongoing measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. We closed Trinity’s campus to help reduce the odds of not overwhelming a medical system that is hard-pressed to keep up with regular illnesses and protect the most vulnerable in our community.  We are thankful for the many parents who are on the front lines of fighting this virus and providing excellent care for patients.

Now what does this mean for our students?

  • From the very beginning of the school closures, our goal has been to provide a quality learning experience for all of our students in PS to grade 12 remotely.
  • Trinity’s teachers will continue to provide instruction and lessons to prepare their students for a smooth transition to their next grade level and a successful completion of this school year.
  • Communication, including school work for these off-campus school days, will be by email with all parents and with students grades 6-12 to keep the learning process moving forward.

Following the Easter Break, we will provide more information regarding how this new directive will affect our seniors and our year-end events.  Between now and then, join us in remembering and celebrating the greatest news of all – Jesus Christ is risen! 

We thank you for your continued support and cooperation.  Keep trusting in Jesus, our risen Savior.
