Welcome Back to the 2021-2022 School Year!
Thanks to the CMC Community for their patience and flexibility despite the changing nature of school during the last year and a half. For those new to us, welcome! We look forward to working with all families this year to produce a quality education, and your continued patience and flexibility will be key to helping us get through what looks like another challenging school year.
Our top priority at CMC is to safely return students to classes (in-person). To do this, we will be actively collaborating with ODE, OHA, and NCSD to provide the safest education possible. What happens with COVID-19 between now and during the school year may require changes in the state’s response efforts, and CMC's Back to School Plan would be updated to reflect any changes. COVID-19 continues to change with new variants and our knowledge of the mitigation efforts grows over time. For these reasons, the guidance for responding to COVID-19 also changes. Currently, the best tools to protect individuals are vaccination for those eligible, physical distancing, face coverings, ventilation and airflow, handwashing, and staying home if ill or exposed to someone with COVID-19. CMC will follow the Oregon Department of Education’s requirement that all students, staff, and volunteers will wear masks while inside our building (water/food breaks excluded), and while on district transportation. Masks are a critical tool to prevent spread of COVID-19 in a school setting.
Everyone in the CMC Community shares in the responsibility to keep our school community safe and healthy. This responsibility asks each person to both maintain their own health as well as respect the individual decisions of others regarding their own health and safety. This mutual respect shown by adults provides a powerful example for all the students in our community. It is expected that persons exhibiting COVID-like symptoms should NOT enter any of our facilities.

Thanks for your support, and here's to a safe, effective journey toward college and career readiness!
