Online or on-site? Request changes for elementary students through Wednesday

Families of 4J elementary school students have two additional days to request a change between online and in-person learning for the second semester. The deadline has been extended to Wednesday, January 12.

There are three learning pathways available to 4J elementary school students this school year: attending their regular school in-person full-time, K–5 Connect for synchronous online learning, or Eugene Online Academy for asynchronous online learning. The second semester begins Monday, January 31.

To request to change your elementary student’s learning pathway for the second semester, please complete and submit the request form by the deadline. Submit a separate form for each student.

ONLY complete the form if you want to request a change. Families who want to continue with their student’s current enrollment do not need to respond.

(Middle and high school students: An opportunity will be provided later to request a change for Trimester 3, which begins on March 28.)

Learning Options

In-Person School

Eugene School District 4J returned to in-person learning with regular school schedules in fall 2021. Families who enrolled their students in online learning with 4J K–5 Connect or Eugene Online Academy this fall may request to return to their regular school at the semester change. (School schedules

Eugene Online Academy

Independent, asynchronous learning on a flexible schedule. Students have regular check-ins and opportunities to meet with staff and other students in their class or age group. Students in grades K–5 use the Florida Virtual School curriculum, facilitated by 4J teachers. (Learn more)

4J K–5 Connect

Classroom learning on a set schedule, offering a combination of real-time teaching and independent learning opportunities. Classes are taught by 4J teachers using the district’s curriculum.

Health & Safety On-Site

The district is deeply committed to the health and safety of students and staff and has implemented comprehensive protocols to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in school buildings. Nearly all district staff and many students have been vaccinated against COVID-19. The district also conducts robust contact tracing when a person who has been at school on-site is identified as having COVID-19, to identify which students and staff may have been in close contact with the positive case.

4J schools’ high standard of safety protocols, high vaccination rate, and detailed contact tracing both reduce the likelihood of transmission between people at school, and reduce the number of students who must quarantine away from school due to exposure to COVID-19. Our priorities are the health and safety of our students and staff, and keeping students learning in school as much as possible. 

Outdoor School for 5th Grade Students 

Outdoor School is an outdoor learning experience provided during a week of school each spring for students in 5th grade. Outdoor School integrates STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math), history and social science lessons, while providing access to natural science learning for all students. The program reinforces and builds on classroom lessons, allowing students to apply knowledge gained in the classroom to the real world. Outdoor School programs are currently fully funded and families are not responsible for costs. 

Students enrolled in online learning through K–5 Connect or Eugene Online Academy for the spring semester will receive an online Outdoor School experience through Whole Earth Nature School’s Coyote Outdoor School, similar to the online Outdoor School experience offered last year.

Students enrolled in on-site learning with their regular school will have an in-person Outdoor School experience. The district is currently planning for multi-day trips that include group building, outdoor explorations and hands-on learning. (All plans are subject to change based on pandemic conditions.)
