Information for Parents

Staff Appreciation Week is next week, February 7th through the 11th. Although the PSO is providing treats throughout the week, we ask that your student get involved as well.

Help Raise Funds with Old Sneakers: Coming up next week, the SMS Parent Service Organization (PSO) will be partnering with GotSneakers to recycle old, unusable sneakers and raise money at the same time. Students and staff will be encouraged to bring old or worn sneakers for collection during Flight Time. Sneakers will be collected daily. The Flight Time class collecting the most sneakers by Friday, February 11th will win a reward.

Past Information for Your Reference

Wellness Days: The Sherwood School Board presented a Staff Care and Retention Package at the Board meeting Wednesday evening. The link is provided here. (https://bit.ly/39VlhD3) Part of that package are two “Wellness Days” on February 18th and April 29th. These will be non-school days for students.


Exclusion Day: February 16th is the exclusion day. Students who have not received required immunizations, or a nonmedical/ medical exemption before the start of school on February 16th will be excluded from school until providing documentation of the receipt of immunization(s), or a nonmedical/medical exemption. Please contact Allison Kopp if you have questions.


Updates to Contact Tracing Guidelines: The Oregon Health Authority (OHA), and Washington County Public Health Department released an update to contact tracing guidance for schools. The update no longer requires quarantine for masked indoor close contacts in K-12 settings. Quarantine will continue to be required for any students exposed due to no mask or an improperly worn mask by either individual. Exposed students who are unvaccinated will be quarantined for 5 days. Parents of exposed, vaccinated students will be notified of the exposure and asked to monitor student health for 14 days.
