SLSD information regarding school closures, continuing services

With the statewide closure of all Oregon K-12 schools between March 16 and March 31, the following is the district’s plan for operations that will continue until students return on April 1. Keep in mind that changes may need to be made as the situation develops. 

Student Nutrition:

The district’s food service team has been tirelessly working to ensure that students will have meals during the two unscheduled closure weeks.

Food Pick up dates:

Tuesday, March 17

Wednesday, March 18

Thursday, March 19

Friday, March 20

Monday, March 30

Tuesday, March 31

• Food pick-up time will be from 9 to 10 a.m. each day

Pick-up locations:

• Cottage Grove High School, main parking lot (1375 S. River Rd.)

• Dorena School, main parking lot (37141 Row River Rd, Dorena, OR 97434)

• London School, main parking lot (73288 London Rd, Cottage Grove, OR 97424)

Any child up to age 18 can receive a breakfast and lunch each day. Federal regulations require that the children receiving meals must be in the car when meals are picked up. To comply with the governor’s order to limit close personal contact, the district asks that everyone remain in the car and staff will deliver the meals to the car.

Student Access:

Community Access:
