Let’s Talk Attendance...

  1. Students attending Homeroom at 8:30am and all four of their academic classes each day is critical to their success.
  2. Teachers take attendance each day, recording attendance in class, a student’s activity in Canvas and any electronic communication the student had with the teacher since then end of the previous day.
  3. If you receive a call in the evening, stating that we haven’t seen your student engaged in a class but they were working on the class through Canvas after the school day, call the Attendance number, 503-356-2762 or email AHS-Communications@beaverton.k12.or.us. We will verify the student's work and correct the attendance record.
  4. Notification from parents/guardians are required to excuse or correct attendance.

Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Awareness Week - October 12-16

On October 12 and 13 Aloha students will be introduced to Adi's Act, a mental wellness and suicide prevention program. BSD will be promoting its first Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Awareness Week (October 12-16) to spread awareness of actions that we can all take to prevent suicide and reduce the stigma related to mental health concerns. As part of this important campaign, students at Aloha High School will receive a lesson to promote positive mental health, recognize the warning signs for suicide risk and encourage help-seeking behaviors. Parents and guardians play a critical role in preventing youth suicide. Please see the resources below to learn more information about suicide prevention and steps that you can take to protect yourself, your community, and your children.

Do you have Chromebook Insurance? Due by October 14th


This year, all students in grades K-12 have the opportunity to check out a district-owned device for use at school and at home. Anticipating that all students will get a district-owned device, the district adds a fee of $20 to students’ Online Payment accounts (maximum fee of $60 per family per school year) to enroll them in the Damage Loss Protection Program. This fee is waived for families who qualify for the free or reduced meal benefits program and have completed the Permission to Share Form. Students need to pay the assigned fee prior to any damage or loss claims to be eligible for the Protection Program coverage and no later than 30 days after they begin school.


Students may choose to decline coverage, but this is not recommended, because the family is assuming full responsibility for any costs due to damage, loss or theft. These costs could be as much as $300 per incident, regardless of how it happens. More information here . Parents will have the option to opt in or opt out of the Protection Program during the Online Verification process that parents are required to complete in ParentVue each fall.


If your student has received a Chromebook or iPad from the Beaverton School District. We highly recommend getting the Student Device Damage and Loss Protection program. If you opt out of this coverage, you will be responsible for any costs due to damage, loss or theft. These costs could be as much as $300 per incident, regardless of how it happens.


If you opt in to this coverage, the program covers the device loaned to the student against all accidental damage, theft, vandalism, or loss for one (1) school year. This program also covers the first incident of loss or damage of a charger and stylus.


The fee is waived for families who qualify for the free or reduced meal benefits program and have completed the Permission to Share Form. Please complete this form and Opt In to the program.


More information about the Damage and Loss Protection Program, including what it covers, can be found on the Student Device Resources page on the BSD website. If you would like to change your selection to opt in to the Damage and Loss Protection Program, please long into your ParentVUE, Family Updates and New Student Enrollment. From the drop down select 1. Fall Verification and Family Updates. 2. Begin Process. It will take a day for the fee to show up in your Online Payment account.
