ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Plans for in-person learning is still up in the air for students in Roseburg Public Schools, despite Gov. Kate Brown’s plan to give districts more freedom to reopen.

District officials said they had plans bring kindergarten through fifth graders back to the classroom on Jan. 7, but they said are putting that date on pause so they can better understand the governor’s directions.

Until then, they said students will continue with distance learning when they come back from winter break next week.

Camron Pope, the president of the Roseburg Education Association, said they’re doing their best to adjust, but it hasn’t been easy.

“The consensus was that people are that people are still extremely nervous of this,” said Pope. “What we had with the metrics were working, and now we’ve switched again. It’s starting to become frustrating.”

District staff said they will also continue with their limited in-person learning option, which allows some struggling students back into the classroom.

The Roseburg school board is expected to meet next Wednesday to discuss their options further.
