An open letter to Corvallis educators

Even though much of the education taking place today in the Corvallis School District seems invisible to the public, we at the Corvallis Public Schools Foundation want teachers and other school employees to know that we have not forgotten you. We know you are working harder than you thought possible and doing jobs that you were not trained for in circumstances that were unimaginable just a year ago.

You might say that this is not what you signed up for, but we know that you did sign up to help young people learn. You have taken a deep breath—probably several—and committed yourselves to doing what it takes to get Corvallis students and families through this extended crisis. You and your families deserve our respect and heartfelt thanks for the sacrifices you are making and the great work you are doing.

We want you to know that we are thinking of you and that we are committed to supporting you and your students in every way we can. We are with you now and will be with you when this unique challenge has passed.

With gratitude and respect,

Board of Trustees
