PRINEVILLE, Ore. (KTVZ) -- If the COVID-19 numbers remain favorable, Crook County's older students could be back in school for in-class learning a week after their younger counterparts, the school board decided Thursday.

During an emergency meeting, the school board passed a motion on a 5-0 vote that said the school district should get as many students back in class as soon as possible, if all state metrics and safety protocls and guidelines are met.

The motion included giving families one week notice before opening.

The district already announced plans for kindergarten through third-graders to begin classroom learning Sept. 8, after those state metrics are met in recent weeks.

As for the fourth- through 12th graders, the district has met state and county metrics for two straight weeks, and a third week of good numbers, released early next week, would allow classes to resume for all in person, spokesman Jason Carr said.

  1. “the school board passed a motion on a 5-0 vote that said the school district should get as many students back in class as soon as possible”

    This is another bold move by the folks in Prineville- determined to “lead the state” out of the clutches of Kate Brown’s state-wide death grip !

    Outside of the irrational metrics put in place by Kaos Kate- what’s at stake here is proof of a pathogens control plan- that when proven successful- must be adopted by the rest of the state.

    This plan requires more than just face masks and clorox bleach. This must utilize state of the art technology- much of what’s already out there in the CDC re-opening guidelines- and is being used in other places like Nevada- a state that has four times the corona death rate as Oregon.

    I would encourage Z21 to cover this story closely- neither Bend nor Redmond had the courage to go first- ye we all know they’ll come a runnin’ lookin for an “atta boy” later on !

    Props to them redneck- still runnin’- Aunt Jemima Syrup lovin’- gun totin’ Americans out there in Prineville- you done the State proud !

  2. So I’m over at FOX looking at this excellent article titled- “As US schools delay re-openings, Europe forges ahead with full in-person learning”

    At the end of the article I find- “The Associated Press contributed to this report.”

    I find this hard to believe because we have all been assured that FOX has no AP stories- therefore we are all stuck reading the negative hate and twisted reports from CNN and their specially selected AP stories.

    So what’s the deal ? it is clear that there are pro-conservative, President Trump approving stories being written by the AP- but KTVZ powers that be- refuse to provide balanced coverage.

    How sleazy is that ?
