Work Furlough

Good Evening Jefferson Families,


The Jefferson School District Board of Directors, in an effort to address recent budget concerns expressed by the State of Oregon as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, approved four (4) furlough days for district staff through the end of the school year. These furlough days will take place one day each week through the end of the school year, beginning May 22nd. While the elementary and middle schools will take their day on Fridays, the high school will be adjusting its dates based on graduation preparation and other determining factors. Please know that teachers will be reaching out to their students with instructions related to their office hours. 


Though these days will be furloughed, the district still recognizes some essential services that are provided to families and students. A select few employees will have their furlough days adjusted in order to fulfill these services.


The following service will continue to be provided:

  • Meal delivery and pick up 

Thank you for allowing us to continue to serve you. We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. Take care of yourselves and each other.


Brad Capener, Superintendent
