Crestview Heights 7th, 8th Graders Temporarily Relocated to WHS
Lincoln County School District administrators have been discussing several options to get students, teachers and staff back to class and back to work as quickly as possible while continuing mold remediation at Crestview, which is taking longer than originally anticipated.
“Obviously, not having school is not an option, and getting our students back to learning as quickly as possible is the highest priority,” LCSD Superintendent Tom Rinearson said. “We are continuing to explore our options and will inform parents once a decision is made.”
One option, however, has been decided: Beginning Monday, April 15, the 91 seventh- and eighth-grade students at Crestview Heights will be temporarily relocated to Waldport High School, most likely through the end of the school year.
Crestview Heights Principal Kelly Beaudry and WHS Principal Tyler Stiner are committed to making this a smooth transition for everyone. A meeting for parents of seventh- and eighth-grade students is scheduled for later this week at the high school. Beaudry and Stiner will show how the high school space will be shared, provide other details, and answer questions. Parents of seventh- and eighth-graders will receive a call on their primary phone with details about the meeting.
District-wide, parent-teacher conferences are scheduled for the evening of April 17, and during the day on April 18-19. However, there will be NO parent-teacher conferences for Crestview Heights students in April, and Crestview Heights seventh-grade and eighth-grade students WILL attend school on April 18-19.
There have been no other decisions yet concerning making up missed days of school or other dates and activities on the school calendar. As soon as any further decisions are made, parents and the community will be informed and a community meeting will be announced, with everyone invited to attend.
Meanwhile, parents are invited to go online to the school district website, www.lincoln.k12.or.us. On the home page under Quick Links, the school district has added a page of “Learning at Home Activities.”
