Family Newsletter-January 8, 2021

Greetings Families,

Welcome back from winter break and welcome to a new year! Our new year has brought us changes in the Return-to-School planning. On Tuesday, Dec. 23, 2020, Governor Kate Brown issued a letter to the directors of the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and Oregon Department of Education (ODE) stating that as of Friday, Jan. 1, 2021, the health metrics guiding schools’ return to in-person learning should be considered advisory rather than mandatory.

HSD is working through this update and collaborating with the Governor's office, ODE, Washington County Public Health, and the bargaining units of Hillsboro Education Association (HEA) and the Hillsboro Classified Union (HCU). An update will be provided to our School Board at their Jan. 12 work session, and will then be shared in a districtwide communication to staff, students, and families on Jan. 13.

Thank you for you patience and understanding as we navigate these updates in this challenging time.

Warmest Regards,

Mrs. Gina McLain

Lenox Booster Club--Positions Needing to be Filled

Lenox Booster Club has several parent volunteers who will soon be transitioning to new schools, leaving positions to be filled for the next school year. We hope to be able to provide as much of the fun events and programs as we have in the past, but heavily rely on volunteers in order to be able to do so. For parents interested in helping, this is a great time and opportunity to learn the ropes with the current event and program leaders as well as to add their own ideas, energy, and skills into the mix!

Here are the current areas needing more members:

  • Treasurer
  • Yearbook
  • Boxtops
  • Bingo
  • Carnival
  • Hospitality
  • Win With Reading
  • Bookfair
  • Spirit Wear

If you are interested in any of the following areas, Booster would love to hear from you! Please reach out to them at lenoxboosterclub@gmail.com for more details. Thank you!

Spirit Wear is now available for purchase online only through our website. Some sizes are limited. To purchase spirit wear go to: "shop" tab on our website.
