  • August 6, 2020 - Weekly Blueprint Planning Update
    This week we shared our HSD Blueprint 2020 with the Board and Washington County Health Authority, knowing that the guidance from ODE required us to submit these plans to these two groups prior to the August 17 due date to ODE. We have gathered input from school staff, parents, students, community partners, and educational leaders in order to create these plans. We are grateful to all of you for your support. We believe that high-quality, equitable learning experiences are possible as we work together to support our students. Thank you in advance for taking action to support students and teachers this fall.  Please continue to track information in more detail on our www.hsd.k12.or.us/blueprintfall2020 and please refer to  www.hsd.k12.or.us/returntoschoolfaq for our updated frequently asked questions.

  • Weekly Blueprint Planning Update
    July 23, 2020 -
     Our goal is to update you weekly on our progress in planning for Fall 2020 return to school. Based on Oregon Department of Education guidance, our plan is taking shape, and you can track information in more detail on our 
    website.  Thank you to the more than two thousand community members who participated in our livestream presentation and Q & A last week. We are grateful to you for sharing your questions and concerns. Your input helps us create the best plans possible for Fall 2020.

    This week our leadership teams at the school and district levels focus attention on Comprehensive Distance Learning planning. Given the current data on COVID-19 in Washington County, we know that a Comprehensive Distance Learning plan will be necessary to reach all students, even if we are able to engage in limited in-person learning. HSD staff have created engagement opportunities to inform and get feedback from traditionally underserved and underrepresented communities regarding our plans for Fall 2020. The input we received is informing our planning for safety, curriculum, technology and logistics for Fall 2020. We are grateful for the support of our families in providing input so we can create inclusive, equitable plans for school in these difficult times.  We will continue to update you on our plans as they take shape.

    Actualización semanal sobre el proceso de planificación 
    23 de julio de 2020 - Nuestra meta es proporcionarles información actualizada cada semana sobre nuestro progreso en la planificación para el regreso a clases en el otoño de 2020. Basado en la guía del Departamento de Educación de Oregón (ODE, por sus siglas en inglés), nuestro plan está tomando forma y ​​pueden encontrar más detalles en nuestro
    sitio web. Gracias a los más de dos mil miembros de la comunidad que participaron en nuestra presentación en vivo de preguntas y respuestas la semana pasada. Estamos agradecidos con ustedes por compartir sus preguntas y preocupaciones. Su aporte nos ayuda a crear los mejores planes posibles para el otoño de 2020.

    Esta semana, nuestros equipos de liderazgo a nivel escolar y del distrito están enfocando su atención en la planificación  del aprendizaje integral a distancia. Teniendo en cuenta la información actual sobre COVID-19 en el Condado de Washington, sabemos que será necesario un plan de aprendizaje integral a distancia para todos los estudiantes, incluso si pueden participar en un aprendizaje limitado en persona. El personal de HSD ha creado oportunidades de participación para informar y obtener comentarios de comunidades tradicionalmente marginadas y subrepresentadas con respecto a nuestros planes para el otoño de 2020. La información que recibimos informa nuestra planificación de seguridad, currículo, tecnología y logística para el otoño de 2020. Estamos agradecidos por el apoyo de nuestras familias al aportar información para que podamos crear planes inclusivos y equitativos para la escuela en estos tiempos difíciles. Continuaremos manteniéndolos informados sobre nuestros planes a medida que vayan tomando forma.

    Como recordatorio, si están interesados en inscribir a sus estudiantes en Hillsboro Online Academy, ¡el proceso es fácil! Simplemente visiten nuestro sitio web en www.hsd.k12.or.us/transfers, pulsar en el enlace de transferencias dentro del distrito y luego completar la solicitud en línea.

Coronavirus (2019-nCoV or COVID-19) Information

  • Novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV or COVID-19) is a virus strain that has only spread in people since December 2019. Health experts are concerned because little is known about the new virus. It has the potential to cause severe illness and pneumonia in some people and there is no treatment.

    Although the exact mechanisms of transmission are not fully known, other coronaviruses spread from an infected person to others through:

    • the air by coughing and sneezing
    • close personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands
    • touching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes

    Infected people have experienced a range of illness, from mild (similar to a common cold) to severe pneumonia that requires hospitalization. So far, deaths have been reported mainly in older adults who had other health conditions. 

    People who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 have reported symptoms that may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 days after exposure to the virus:

    • fever
    • cough
    • difficulty breathing

    If you have symptoms, call your healthcare provider to identify the safest way to receive care. Let them know if you have traveled to an affected area or come in contact with an ill person who has traveled to an affected area within the last 14 days. 

    Additional resources and a rolling situation update page are provided in the right sidebar. For additional information, please call the state's information helpline at 2-1-1.
