Dear Students & Families

The last day of school for students will be December 18th. Knowing our 4J staff will no longer be available during the winter break, the 4J Wraparound team has put together this short newsletter of resources for our families.


Feel free to look over the extensive list of available resources for Lane County residents.


If a 4J student or family needs assistance from the Wraparound Team, we will be checking our office phone weekly and we will try to get back to you within a few days.


You can leave a message for the Wraparound team at 541-790-5718.
