Valley Inquiry Charter School continues to monitor the guidance and rules as set forth by the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), Governor's Office, Oregon Department of Education (ODE), Oregon Health Authority, Marion County Health Department, and Salem-Keizer Public Schools District.  We are committed to doing our part to maximize in-person instruction while keeping students, families, and staff members as safe as possible.  Please note:  With the increase in COVID cases and the Delta variant, changes to our policies and procedures can happen quickly and suddenly.  

The following policies and procedures are currently in place and exist as mechanisms to mitigate and curb the spread of COVID-19 within our school community.  These policies and procedures exist to prevent the spread of COVID-19 while still allowing for all students to have full access to in-person education, full-time.
