ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Roseburg Public Schools will expand its limited in-person learning options to all grades starting in January. 

Limited in-person instruction is created by state health and education leaders to help schools reach students who need extra support during the pandemic. 

Elementary students can participate in limited in-person instruction on Tuesdays starting Jan. 12. Middle and high school students can participate on Wednesdays starting Jan. 13. Transportation will be available for all grade levels. More information on routes and times will be shared prior to the start of the program.

Limited in-person instruction involves protocols intended to keep students and staff healthy through small cohorts and limited interactions, and the district is confident that these opportunities can be offered in a way that prioritizes the health and safety of staff and students.

Cohort groups are limited to no more than 20 students and a student cannot be part of more than two cohorts in any given week. Staff members cannot interact with more than three cohorts in any given day and five in a week.

"Although we have made great strides in serving our students through remote learning, it is not a sufficient substitute for teaching and learning in-person,” Superintendent Jared Cordon said. “Many of our kids are struggling, and the pandemic has highlighted the vast differences in the support our kids need and deserve. These needs range from academic, to social, to emotional. We believe that even short windows of time with our students will make a tremendous difference in their mental health, emotional well-being, and educational progress."

These opportunities are voluntary. Individual schools will reach out to families with more information on scheduling and logistics.
