Eugene School District 4J looks forward to welcoming students back to school in-person this fall. Schools will resume their regular schedules with students on-site full-time, five days a week.

Classrooms will look more similar to how they were before the pandemic, but with health and safety protocols in place including 3 feet of physical distancing and face masks required for all students and staff, following both a state requirement and recommendation from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Parents who do not want their student to wear a face mask should enroll in online learning.

The district recognizes that some families are not yet ready for their students to return to the classroom in-person this fall, and may prefer to continue learning online. The district is offering two distance learning options for the coming school year.

Online Learning Options for 2021–22

4J K–5 Connect • Elementary school: 4J K–5 Connect — Online classroom learning on a set schedule, offering a combination of real-time teaching and independent learning opportunities. The school day is planned from 8:30 a.m.–3 p.m., Monday–Friday (1:45 p.m. early release on Fridays). Daily scheduleLearn more

• All grades: Eugene Online Academy (EOA) — Independent, asynchronous learning on a flexible schedule and regular check-ins with 4J teachers. Learn more

These programs will be districtwide, with fewer online students expected than last year. Online learning will not be linked to individual 4J schools nor will it offer special programs such as language immersion. Students will be able to return to their regular school at the term change or next year.

Submit your request by August 23 if you want your student to learn online this fall. Requests received by August 23 will be accommodated if possible. A lottery will be held for K–5 Connect if there are more requests than can be accommodated. Later requests may be accepted if space is available. Priority will be given for district residents, but non-residents may apply.
