When should I keep my child home?

The question of when to keep a child home from school has always been hard.  Now that we are living in the world of COVID-19 it is even more difficult to know what is best.  The picture and link below is a guide to help you make that decision.


Mitchell School District #55

Located in the heart of Oregon, Mitchell School provides space for the mind to learn, the heart to explore and the student to excel.

With low student-teacher ratio, an International Dormitory, and a close-knit rural community, Mitchell provides the environment for students to thrive.

Our Mission

Mitchell School will be a place where each individual is accepted, valued, respected, and encouraged to take an active, responsible role in the school and community.


Empowering students to own their future by offering an engaging education that encourages perseverance and critical thinking.

At Senator Jeff Merkley's virtual town hall meeting on March 2nd, he awarded Mitchell School students a flag that has been flown over the nation's capitol building because of their efforts in raising over $4000 for the students in the Santiam Canyon School District in Mill City after their community was devastated by wildfire. Thank you Senator Merkley for the recognition and thank you to our kids for their amazing work!
