Staffing Issues Move Some Middle Schoolers Into Temporary Remote Learning

The Medford School District announced that due to staff shortages, some McLoughlin Middle School students will move to remote learning for a couple of days.

This is the letter sent by the school’s principal to affected families:

Dear McLoughlin Families,

Due to staff shortages caused by COVID-related issues and/or requirements, students on teams 81, 82, and 83 will be utilizing Canvas-based learning from home tomorrow and Friday. There will be no in-person learning Thursday, Jan. 27 and Friday, Jan. 28 for students on teams 81, 82, and 83. We hope to be back to full in-school learning on Monday, January 31.

We know this is an inconvenience and challenge for many families and for that we deeply apologize. This decision is based on student safety and our ability to provide proper supervision for our students.

Students not on teams 81, 82, and 83 will continue to attend classes on-campus tomorrow and Friday.

Students on teams 81, 82, and 83 should log into Canvas tomorrow morning where lessons will be posted to each class page to complete throughout the day. Attendance will be taken on a Google form. We expect school to resume normally on Monday, January 31. We will let you know if that is not the case.

Please help us continue in-person learning by not sending your student to school if they are sick or if they have been exposed to COVID-19. If a family member in the household has COVID-19, students should be quarantined unless they are vaccinated, have had COVID-19 in the last 90 days, or the ill individual is fully isolated from the student.

Thank you for your continued support.

If you have questions, please reach out at 541-842-3720.
