Nov. 2 School Reopening for Grades 4-12 Delayed Due to Increase in Cases

7:13 PM · Oct 20, 2020

Due to consistent increases in COVID-19 cases and positivity rates in Douglas County, Roseburg Public Schools’ will not be able to move forward with plans to return grades 4-12 to in-person learning on Nov. 2. The district’s strategy moving forward will be to monitor case rates week by week and reopen to these grades once the state-required metrics are met. The district will communicate our status weekly on our website so that staff, students and parents can prepare for the transition. The state metrics must be met for three consecutive weeks in order to qualify for these grade levels to return to in-person learning. The state’s Metrics Flow Chart can be viewed at The latest COVID case numbers and rates can be viewed at Please remember that the virus and our abilities to reduce its spread in our community will remain key to the reopening timeline. In an effort to better understand the successes and challenges of remote learning, the district is distributing surveys to staff, students and families to assess how the remote learning process is working and how it can be improved. Parents can participate in the family survey by visiting Student voices are also key to our success, and teachers will be sending surveys to students as well.
