Donuts are a tradition in many offices. But what happens when you can't go to work?

In the Corvallis School District they bring the donuts to you.

Donuts are always a treat, but especially when they're specially made up in Corvallis "Blue Devil" white and blue and delivered right to your door.

That's what was happening Corvallis on Wednesday, as superintendent Tim Johnson and volunteers drove all over the valley, delivering donuts to more than 190 staff members from Darby north to Missoula. "Operation Donut Drop" was organized to mark Teacher Appreciation Week.

The district always tries to do something special for staff every year. But with everyone adapting to remote learning and the pandemic, Johnson thought it was time for a special effort to honor all the hard work.

"Yeah it was different," Johnson said. "And under the circumstances we had to improvise, adapt and overcome all that. So we decided to do our donuts, and drop them off if we need to at every staff member's home. So it's been really fun and I think staff have really enjoyed it. And it's just something that we just have to adapt to."

The district made sure to honor all the social distancing and other precautions while spreading the "gooey goodwill."
