Plans for the 21-22 School Year

2021-2022 School Year FAQ

What are the hours of the school day for each building?

All three of our school campuses will return to full-time in-person school five days a week.  The start and end times of the school day in each building are:

Warrenton Grade School (K – 5)                  8:00 AM to 2:30 PM

Warrenton Middle School (6 – 8)                 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM

Warrenton High School (9 – 12)                  8:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Will there be an in-district remote learning option next year?

Yes.  The Warrenton Academy of Virtual Education (WAVE) program will be available to students in grades K – 12 whose parents would prefer an entirely remote program next year.

You can find more information on our website or by contacting the WAVE Program Director Mindy Little at

What COVID protocols will be in place at the start of the school year?

Oregon law requires:

    • Individuals to wear masks on school buses, indoors while at school, and during indoor field trips.

    • Schools to provide a supervised health room where students who are ill with COVID-like symptoms can be monitored and sent home if needed.

    • Schools to exclude for 10 to 14 days individuals who:

      • Test positive for COVID.

      • Have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID.

      • Are presumed to be positive for COVID. (An individual is presumed positive if they have been exposed to someone with COVID and become ill with COVID symptoms.)


In addition to these required protocols, the district will continue to:

    • Sustain 3 feet of physical distancing to the extent possible without disrupting the daily class schedule or the learning process.

    • Conduct verbal wellness checks of students each morning as they board buses and/or enter the classrooms.

    • Emphasize frequent handwashing and hand-sanitizing for students and staff.

    • Clean and sanitize commonly used areas/surfaces frequently.

    • Strongly encourage individuals who are not feeling well to stay home.


An individual is not required to wear a mask if the individual is:

    • Outside

    • Actively eating or drinking

    • Playing a musical instrument that requires using the mouth.

    • Alone in a private office enclosed by walls on all sides with a door that is closed.
