Students and staff who have symptoms of infectious illness, such COVID-19, should stay home and be referred to their healthcare providers for testing and treatment. Staying home when sick with COVID-19 is essential to keeping the disease from spreading in our schools.

Students who prefer to remain online for the 2021-2022 school year should enroll in FLEX Online School

Will volunteers be allowed on district property, including schools?

Effective November 2, volunteers (including AVID and Art Literacy) whose vaccination status has been verified are allowed. Volunteers will need to wear masks and adhere to social distancing, but other previous restrictions have been dropped. However, volunteers who have an approved medical or religious exception may only volunteer in non-student contact roles. The use of volunteers is at the discretion of the building principal and is contingent on the school's ability to verify vaccination status accurately and consistently. 

Anyone experiencing symptoms of infectious illness, such as flu or COVID-19, should stay home and seek testing and care, regardless of vaccination status.

How does a volunteer provide proof of vaccination? How does a volunteer apply for a medical or religious vaccination exception?

Per Governor Kate Brown's recent order, all volunteers — whether inside or outside, whether during the school day or after-school hours — must receive the two-dose Pfizer or Moderna vaccine OR the single-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine AND be at least 14 days past their final vaccine dose.

You must upload your vaccination card or your immunization record. Volunteers who are unable to be vaccinated due to a documented medical condition (including pregnancy) or due to a sincerely held religious belief must submit the required Oregon Health Authority (OHA) exception form.

To upload your vaccination card or to access an exception form, log onto your account. Go to the "My Profile" tab on the upper right, click on "Additional Information" and then select "Beaverton School District." Scroll to the bottom of the screen to find the COVID-19 Vaccination section. From here, you can upload your vaccination card. If you need an exception form, click on the "i" icon and download the form. After it's completed, it can be uploaded in this same area.

Once you've uploaded your information, it will be reviewed by District staff; other volunteers will not have access to these documents.

As always, you're required to sign in to the timeclock when you arrive at the front office. The office staff will ensure that the vaccination or exception requirement has been met before you're allowed to begin your volunteer activity.

What qualifies as a medical or religious vaccination exception?

Under the governor’s Temporary Administrative Order PH 39-2021, a medical exception must be corroborated by a document signed by a medical provider, who is not the individual seeking the exception, certifying that the individual has a physical or mental impairment that limits the individual’s ability to receive a COVID-19 vaccination based on a specified medical diagnosis, and that specifies whether the impairment is temporary in nature or permanent.

A religious exception must be corroborated by a document, on a form prescribed by the Oregon Health Authority, signed by the individual stating that the individual is requesting an exception from the COVID-19 vaccination requirement on the basis of a sincerely held religious belief and include a statement describing the way in which the vaccination requirement conflicts with the religious observance, practice or belief of the individual.

Will volunteers with an approved medical or religious exception be allowed to work with students?

Volunteers who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 but have approved vaccination exceptions for either medical or religious reasons may only be assigned to non-student-contact volunteer activities; they may not volunteer directly with students or be inside or outside a BSD school or facility where they would have direct or indirect contact with students. For example, if a volunteer coach has a medical or religious exception, that coach may not work with students. However, that coach could watch game film and provide support to coaches. Another example, if a parent volunteer has a medical or religious exception, that parent may not build theater sets with students but could build sets with other adults or independently.

Does the vaccination rule apply to students who volunteer?

Yes, student-volunteers (ages 16 and older) would need to provide proof of vaccination.

Will volunteers need to wear masks?

All volunteers will need to wear masks, both inside and outside school facilities including athletic fields.

Can volunteers go on a school field trip?

If the field trip is during school hours, volunteers will not be allowed to participate. If the school field trip is during non-school hours, volunteers will be allowed to participate. At the principal’s discretion, chaperones may be allowed to meet school groups at an off-school site during school hours but must provide their own transportation and meet all other volunteer requirements, including the upload of a vaccination card (or exception form) on a account. See the section above on “How does a volunteer provide proof of vaccination? How does a volunteer apply for a medical or religious vaccination exception?”

Can school PTOs, PTCs or other parent-teacher organizations hold evening meetings inside of school buildings?

To allow for proper cleaning by the custodial staff, parent-teacher organizations cannot hold meetings after 6 p.m. inside school buildings at this time. We encourage these groups to meet virtually. They can choose to meet outdoors on school grounds but may not utilize custodial services to set up or break down their meetings.
