CORVALLIS — Corvallis School trustees have decided to keep students on a distance learning model for the rest of this year because of the pandemic.
District spokeswoman Sarah Fryer says trustees made the decision on Tuesday evening after careful consideration of continuing distance learning against some of the concerns about re-opening schools with strict measures because of COVID-19.

Like other districts in the Bitterroot, Corvallis administrators have been worried about the mechanics of social distancing and other operational questions under the guidelines issued last week by Governor Steve Bullock.
Corvallis joins Hamilton, Darby, Victor, Stevensville, Lone Rock and Florence in not physically re-opening classes before summer.
