April 22 is Earth Day
Plants need bees to pollinate, and a honeybee can visit 50 to 100 plants in one trip!
So, one way to make a positive impact is by planting seeds. Any flowering plant, including fruits and vegetables, gives bees a place to be.
Fresh fruits and vegetables are served every day for lunch on our salad bars.

Weather Emergency Communications
If parents are ever concerned about a student’s well-being, feel free to reach out to your principal. It is important to keep your lines of communication open and maintain strong partnerships between students, families, staff, and other resources.
SafeOregon also is an effective way to report a tip regarding safety threats or potential acts of violence to our students or schools.
(Students should also know that intentionally providing a false report is a serious offense.)
