2020-2021 Reopen Plan

Latest Updates from the Executive Director on the 2020-2021 School Year.

Important Update On New School Metrics from Governor Brown

Dear Trinity Family, As promised in last Wednesday’s Hello from Trinity, I want to update you on some significant changes announced by Governor Brown at her press conference this morning.

School Update – September 2

Dear Trinity Family, We give our God all the thanks and praise for a smooth opening by all accounts yesterday (September 1).  All supplies and devices were picked up by our students in grades 3-12.  The grades 3-7 cohorts had all students present.  Our Emergency Childcare program (ECE all-day, half-day, and the KDG to age […]

This document is a constantly evolving plan of what Trinity’s school is to look like for your child(ren) in accordance with the latest guidelines from State authorities and  Ready Schools, Safe Learners v 3.0.1, from the Oregon Department of Education (ODE).  Non-public schools must comply with sections 1-3.

2020-2021 Reopen Plan -Two Different Start Plans. Same Trinity.

While we are hopeful for all grades to open All Day/Every Day on September 1, Deschutes County is trending towards this likely reality: In-person learning on Trinity’s campus in KDG to grade 3 is a high possibility, but grades 4-12 will open online.  This is due to the stated exception rule for KDG to grade 3.

 To be able to meet these principles and abide by the ODE guidelines the Trinity community has made significant investments in our learning experience, not only for today but for the foreseeable future. These investments will help us continue to grow and improve our program and include but are not limited to, materials, infrastructure, and personnel.
 

No matter what situation we are required to start the school year with, our staff is prepared to implement a quality educational experience while maintaining the support and family-like environment our community has come to expect.

  • We will be able to serve students up to age 12 in the after school program. 
  • We will have two additional classrooms that can each serve a limited number of students in each room for KDG and older. 
  • The population of these cohorts must remain consistent day-to-day and not exceed the regulated number given to us by the State health authorities.  
  • There will be no drop-in daycare options. 
  • There will be no morning TLCA.
  • TLCA will be open until 5:30p.
