As we begin using the technology for Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL), it is inevitable that issues will arise. The IMESD is offering a Student and Family Technology Support line. See the attached flyer for more info.

Good evening. The mandatory registration scheduled for Aug 11th and 12th has been rescheduled for Tues., Aug 18 and Wed., Aug 19. This change was initiated due to the final ODE, OHA and Gov Brown school update which will occur on Aug 11th. That will give the District time to implement any changes prior to registration. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks, Darrick Cope

It is with a heavy heart and a high level of frustration that I send this message. In a press conference today, Gov Brown and OHA reported on a COVID health metrics they have been using to assist them in determining whether or not schools can resume in-person instruction for the start of the 2020 school year. At this time, most schools in Oregon will not be allowed in-person instruction to start the school year. All school districts will be required to offer only Comprehensive Distance Learning instruction. Hopefully, as the health metrics change in Umatilla County and the cases per 100,000 decrease, the Helix School District will be allowed to return to in-person instruction. Thanks, Darrick Cope
