Heppner Jr/Sr High School administration announced January 7th, 2021 that HJSHS will recognize 60-69% as a letter ‘D’ grade, which will count for Semester 1 credit. Semester 1 ends next Thursday, January 14th, 2021. This exception is due to COVID-19’s effect on our standard learning format and will be reevaluated for semester 2 at a later date. We encourage students to continue to work for grades of ‘C’ or higher as the ‘D’ grade will have a negative impact on their grade point average (GPA) and could affect future scholarship and/or college admission opportunities.
Congratulations to Class of 2021's Madelyn Nichols on her commitment to Eastern Oregon University and it's Track & Field and Cross Country athletic programs. Way to go, Madelyn!

As the COVID numbers have continued to increase across the county, MCSD continues to work on plans that will allow us to keep our buildings open to the fullest extent possible. Oregon Department of Education (ODE) and the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) have adjusted the metrics for returning to in-person instruction by removing the case positivity rate for small counties like Morrow County. https://5il.co/np85 Currently we have been able to keep all our buildings open on a limited basis following the original guidelines ODE released. Beginning in January, we will have to operate under the current metrics and may have to return to Comprehensive Distance Learning unless our efforts to maintain our current status is adjusted by ODE and OHA. We are asking our community members to continue following OHA guidelines in an effort to bring our county COVID numbers back down. Please help to stop COVID-19 from spreading by wearing a face covering in public, washing your hands and covering your cough. Please stay home if you are sick and avoid contact with people who are sick.
Wishing you and your family a happy and restful Thanksgiving! MCSD will be closed November 25th-27th.

Ag Leadership students spent the morning filling backpacks for families in our community. The backpack program, facilitated by Agricultural Sciences teacher Beth Dickenson, supplies families of school-age children with food supplements for the weekends. Each bag contains food for breakfast, lunch and snacks, including fruits and vegetables, similar to what they would receive through their school day. Peggy Doherty, CARE advocate for our local schools, helps distribute backpacks or they can be picked up at the Ag building each Thursday. If interested in signing up your family to receive a backpack, please contact Mrs. Dickenson or Peggy Doherty at Heppner High.
