Why We Are Changing Spring Break

A Word From Our President

Dear Canyonville Academy Students, Staff, Faculty and Families,

Like most of you, I have been intently following reports of this Coronavirus Covid-19 and considering the many ways in which this virus could affect my life and the lives of those closest to me. These past few weeks have been a powerful reminder of just how interconnected we are and how our choices today can impact our options for tomorrow.

Here at Canyonville Academy, we are blessed to have a group of extremely dedicated people who have been working literally around the clock to respond to the multi-faceted challenges posed by this COVID-19. As a team, they have been considering every possibility as they go about their important work on your behalf. I write to you today updating you on a major adjustment that will limit exposure to the disease among our students and staff members.

Canyonville Academy is choosing to hold Spring Break here on campus for the safety of our students. This is an answer to recent parental requests and hearing our own student voices as they voiced feeling safer here on campus.

During this time of uncertainty and using our best efforts to protect our students, faculty and staff, we are announcing that Canyonville Academy is NOT charging any fees for students choosing to stay on campus for Spring Break.

This decision was not made lightly. The goal of these adjustments are to minimize students to any public exposure outside of the school.

Our actions are consistent with the recommendations of leading health officials on how to limit the spread of this COVID-19. This decision is also consistent with similar decisions made by peer secondary schools in Oregon.

We have setup a dedicated webpage for regular updates and additional information here – COVID. You will also continue to receive School information via email. If you have any questions about Spring Break please contact us at springbreak@canyonville.net.

To our students, I know it all sounds difficult to possibly be quarantined and separated from your friends. We are doing this not just to protect you, but to also protect other members of our school community who may be more susceptible to this disease than you are.

To our faculty, I recognize that we are asking you midway through the semester to completely add a different dimension and rethink how you teach and score. We do this because we know that you want to avoid putting your students at risk.

To our staff, I understand that we are expecting you to go above and beyond in your efforts to support our important mission of teaching and mentoring. We do this because we know we can rely on your creativity, your flexibility, and your sound judgment through these challenging days.

It is an honor to be a member of a community where people put the greater good above their own self-interest. Thank you for your commitment, your patience and your resilience as we all learn to walk through this unforeseen circumstance, all the while sharing a deeper care for one another.
