  • Transfers

    Families who are interested in switching their students from their current learning model – either from SPSOnline to their neighborhood school or from their neighborhood school to SPSOnline – can now submit paperwork to make that change official. Transfer requests must be submitted by November 25, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.

    For families who wish to enroll their student in SPSOnline, follow the link below, fill it out and return it to the district office at 640 A Street in downtown Springfield. Transfer requests can be submitted by personal delivery, regular mail, email or fax. The document is also available at the district office where it can be filled out and returned.

    Families wishing to enroll their students at their neighborhood school should contact that school to inquire about the process to complete that switch.

Ridgeview Principal Corner

  • Welcome to Ridgeview Elementary

    Posted by Jeremy Hugo on 11/9/2020

    Dear Ridgeview Family,

    Last week, Governor Brown and our state partners at the Oregon Health Authority and Oregon Department of Education released updated guidance on what local COVID-19 infection rate metrics need to be met to return students to in-person learning. The new metrics reflect updated research and CDC recommendations and are consistent with those being used by many other states which are successfully holding school in person.

    New Health Guidance Overview:

    In order for SPS to hold in-person instruction for all SPS students, Lane County must meet the following infection rates:

    •   Fewer than 50 positive cases per 100,000 people over 14 days
    •   AND a less than 5% positivity rate in the county in the same time frame.

    Similar to previous guidance, there is a recognition of the importance of in-person instruction to our youngest learners and there is increased flexibility to welcome back K-3 (and then up to 5th in SPS).

    • K-3 students can return to in-person learning when a county sees fewer than 100 positive cases per 100,000 people over a 14-day period.
    • When a district sees success with the return of K-3 and demonstrates the ability to limit the risk of exposure, grades 4 and 5 may be phased into in-person instruction as well.

    SPS will continue to share the current metrics following the OHA weekly release. Families can review the status here.

    What this means for SPS

    Lane County does not currently meet infection rate metrics to welcome students back. However, as the district continues to monitor trends infection rates are decreasing as members of our community prioritize healthy practices.

     Teams at SPS have reviewed the information, assessed the policies and protocols that were put in place over the summer to safely welcome students back to school and have made the following decisions that balance health and safety metrics, and continuity of instruction.

    Should the county meet health and safety standards, this is the schedule SPS would utilize to return to in-person learning. *

    ELEMENTARY:

    • December 7 – Kindergarten and 1st Grade students would begin in-person learning
    • December 10 – 2nd Grade students would begin in-person learning
    • December 14 – 3rd Grade students would begin in-person learning
    • February 16 - Once SPS has demonstrated the safety measures in place have limited the spread of COVID-19 in our school settings, the district could welcome 4th and 5th Grade students to in-person learning prior to the end of the second trimester.

     

    *Note: if health metrics do not meet the above standards to return December 7, we will wait until after winter break to transition to in-person learning.
