Many of you may have heard the new order that came out a few hours ago by the Governor that can be seen here (Governor’s order). This order closes all schools next week. Through the night, our team here in Fern Ridge will be working to prepare for this. Also on the table is closing school for tomorrow, Friday the 13th, 2020. Please stay tuned here, and to Superintendent Carpenter facebook for the latest updates. I will have an update and a plan in place for tomorrow and posted by 4:00 AM.
We will also have further information, including if staff will report tomorrow, if we will be able to serve lunch and or breakfast next week (I do not believe that will be possible for tomorrow if we close) and other important information for parents.
I understand the burden schools closing puts on some of our families that are most in need. I know as a community many will step up and try to support others as best as you can. Stay tuned and thanks for your patience and cooperation.
Gary Carpenter, Superintendent, FRSD 28J
