Students, Parents and Community Members,
As Umatilla County enters Phase 2 and various facilities begin to open up, I wanted to inform you of the situation in the Helix School District. As part of Governor Brown Executive Order 20-20, school districts are closed through the end of June 30th, 2020. As part of this order, all school facilities are also closed to public use. Because of this order, PACE the school district’s insurance provider, will not cover any liability claims that may occur on school property. What that means for you is the school gyms, weight room, playground, tennis court, track and other school properties are closed to public use through June 30th, 2020. After that date, the District will reassess and determine what facilities will and will not be reopened for public use.
Thank you, Darrick Cope, Superintendent, Helix School District.
