SIA- Flyer (1) Fall 2021

Following review of recommendations by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup has confirmed that pediatric doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children are safe and effective for children ages 5 through 11.

Fern Ridge School District has worked with Lane County Public Health to secure a vaccination clinic in our community.


November 23rd and  December 14th  4pm-7pm at Veneta Elementary School GYM/Cafeteria  

  • Sign ups are required and will begin on Friday, Nov. 19th through an online portal. To schedule a vaccine appointment visit LCPH website . Use code FRSDKids
  • There will be approximately 150 total slots in the 3 hour time slot.
  • Vaccination Clinics will be put on by Lane County Public Health  and will be primarily for 5-11 years.   There will be limited supply for siblings outside of this age category/parents in the same household. 
  • Masks will be required at the clinic
  • Booster shots will NOT be available at this clinic.
  • As with any shot, please plan to stay for 15 minutes after receiving the injection to monitor for any immediate reaction.
  • Clinics will be held 3 weeks apart as is the recommended vaccination schedule.
  • Children ages 5 to 11 will receive one-third of the adult dose of the Pfizer vaccine using smaller needles designed for children. To become fully vaccinated, the child will need a second shot of the Pfizer vaccine three weeks after their first shot.
  • The vaccine is free. No health insurance is required, and it is available regardless of immigration status.
  • A vaccinated individual is considered “fully immunized” 2 weeks after the last dose. When you are fully vaccinated and do not have COVID-19 symptoms, you do not need to quarantine after an exposure to someone with COVID-19.

The American Rescue Plan Act, 2021 (ARP Act or ARPA) provides an additional $122 billion for the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund III (ESSER III or ARP ESSER). $1.1 billion will be awarded to Oregon. ESSER III Grants will be awarded to local education associations in the proportion they received funds under Part A of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) in fiscal year 2020. ESSER III Fund grants can be used to reimburse eligible expenses incurred between March 13, 2020 and September 30, 2024.

The process and paperwork for engagement, allocation, and budgeting is important work. There are a number of requirements and factors that have to be considered when working with a team to decide what will be funded.

ESSER III Overarching Outcome:

Address student needs arising from the coronavirus pandemic and/or to emerge stronger post-pandemic, which may include reopening schools safely, sustaining their safe operation, and addressing students’ social, emotional, and mental health.

As we approach the first day of school, the staff in Fern Ridge School District would like to share one more WELCOME BACK!

For the 2021-2022 school year, all meals will be served to all children ages 0-18 in the community at our daily Grab & Go pick up site in the back high school parking lot from 11:30 – 12:00 Monday thru Friday.  You’ll also receive a breakfast for each child for the next school day.  All meals are free of charge.

Student meals at school are also served free of charge with additional entrée items students at the middle school and high school may purchase.

We are excited and ready to open our doors to students in the coming days, we are also fully aware of the challenges we may face and need to be prepared for.

Please know that the continuing to provide in-person instruction is our top priority. To do that, keeping our students and staff as safe as possible is imperative!  The best way parents can help support that is by keeping students at home when they are showing any symptoms of being sick.  Below you will find resources that will be helpful in answering any questions you may have. We appreciate your support in reopening our schools and look forward to working together in the year to come.

Continue to check FRSD school and district websites for more information.

To Our Fern Ridge Students, Families, Staff, and Community-

We hope you have had an enjoyable Summer Break so far!

Both the State of Oregon and the Federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have released their new COVID-19 safety guidance for schools. You can read through the Resiliency Framework for the 2021-22 School year here.

As we prepare to open our doors and welcome back our K-12 students, we wanted to share our reopening plan. Follow the link below to see FRSD’s draft Operational Plan regarding fall 2021. This plan will be discussed with the School Board on Monday, Sept. 20, at 6:30 p.m.

While trying to prepare for every scenario is nearly impossible, we feel confident that our district plan will create a safe learning environment for students and staff. The health and safety of our students and staff are our highest priority. To protect everyone’s health, we will open schools using safety measures that we have all grown familiar with:

  • Physical distancing
  • Face coverings
  • Ventilation and airflow
  • Hand washing
  • Staying home if ill or exposed to someone with COVID-19.

We will continue to communicate with you as the new school year begins. As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to building administrators or district office staff if you have any questions or concerns.

Below, you will find the FRSD Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan. Please contact Michelle Marshall at mmarshall@fernridge.k12.or.us if you have any questions or would like to provide feedback.
