Parent Blast - November 9, 2020

Conference Week

We have arrived at conference week and have officially completed quarter 1! Thank you for your continued partnership as we navigate this distance learning environment together.


This week we are conducting fall conferences (see schedule below). This is a time to connect with your child's teacher regarding engagement and academic progress so far this school year. This year there are different conference time-frames due to the different class sizes. Our K-2 conferences will be scheduled for 30 minutes and our 3-6 grade classes will be scheduled for 15 minutes. As a reminder, all teachers have daily office hours should you need more time to connect. You will notice that there is a variety of times both during the day and in the evening to accommodate different family schedules. This schedule allows for one conference per student during the schedule below. Please prioritize this time of connection with your child's teacher so we can continue to build a strong network of support for your child.

  • 11/10: Fall Conferences, 4:00-8:00 pm
  • 11/11: No School, Veteran's Day

Parent Support - Office Hour

Starting next Friday, Mrs. Cary our Student Success Coach, will be hosting WEEKLY drop-in office hours for Caregivers at 1pm. This is a good place for parents/caregivers who may have questions about parenting through distance learning, mental health or behavior concerns, or those just wanting more guidance and reassurance about how to meet their children's needs during these difficult times, to bring questions and get ideas.

Math Tournament & Special Guest

This week our sixth grade leaders are continuing the math tournament and students can now participate in round 2. All students are welcome to submit responses throughout the tournament and continue to participate while the list narrows to our winners. The video and form are located on our website (embedded in our twitter feed), our Facebook page, our Twitter handle and in some google classrooms.


Tune in on Tuesday to see our students interviewing Superintendent Scott!

Attendance Reminders

Attendance in CDL has meant quite a few shifts from our former practice, however our process for calling the attendance line when your child is sick remains the same. If your child does not or will not attend any synchronous (live) or asynchronous (google classroom) on a school day, please call our attendance line at: 503-844-1385. This ensures your child's attendance is reported accurately.

K-3 Parent Survey

In order to continue our planning for a potential hybrid model, we are asking that families complete one survey for each child in grades K-2. Please click on the appropriate grade level link below:


Food Pantry

Our food pantry continues to be available to serve our families in need. Please reach out to Mrs. Awad if you need assistance: awada@hsd.k12.or.us.

Campuses Still Closed

Currently our campuses are still closed to the public. New district signs have been placed to replace previous ones.
