SLSD State Ordered School Closure

We recognize how school closures deeply affect our community and families. We realize that the role that schools play in our community are essential. These decisions weren’t made lightly. It is always our mission to put kids first and do what is best for them. 

That being said, South Lane School District is still committed to serving its students, community and families despite our doors being closed. The following is our plan for operations that will continue until students return on April 1st. Please understand that changes may need to be made to this plan after this communication, but we let you know if that happens.
