Principal's Message

Greetings Mountain View Community,

Reminder: When picking up your student, please remember to use the front parking lot along Farmington (or the lot by DQ, or Champion's park). We are not allowed to have parents in or around the lot where buses pick up students any time from 3:40-4:10. Thank you for helping to keep all of our students safe.

Annual Parent Survey

Please take a few moments to complete the BSD Annual Parent Survey! Our goal is to ensure that every member of our school community feels welcomed, valued, and informed, so it is important for all parents/guardians to complete the survey.

A link to the 2021 Annual Parent Survey will be sent to all valid parent email addresses via School Messenger on Sunday, May 9. The deadline to participate is Sunday, May 31.

Fake And Fatal

Community Conversation: We'll be hosting a virtual event on Thursday, April 29 at 7 p.m. Please join us live on the district’s YouTube channel or Facebook page. We’ll be taking questions via those channels. Our panelists will include representatives from the Washington County Public Health Department, Washington County Sheriff’s Department and Beaverton Police Department in addition to Jen and Jon Epstein.

Les imploramos a todos los estudiantes de secundaria y preparatoria y a sus padres que se unan a nosotros en “Fake & Fatal”, una conversación con la comunidad sobre los peligros de comprar píldoras falsas hechas con el mortal fentanilo, en las redes sociales. El año pasado, esta alarmante tendencia cobro la vida de más de un confiado estudiante del Distrito Escolar de Beaverton. Este evento virtual se llevará a cabo el jueves, 29 de abril a las 7:00 p.m. Puede ver la presentación en la página de Facebook del Distrito o en el canal de YouTube. Además de los expertos locales, escucharemos a los padres de familia de estudiantes de Cedar Park y Sunset, Jennifer y Jon Epstein, cuyo hijo, Cal, murió de envenenamiento con fentanilo en diciembre.

Vale la pena invertir tiempo en la vida de su hijo.

Si desea escuchar la conversación comunitaria en español, envíe un correo electrónico a o llame al 503-356-4360 para obtener un enlace especial de Zoom.

Este evento se lleva a cabo en asociación con el Departamento de Salud Pública del Condado de Washington, el Departamento

The Latest on State Testing

Because of the pandemic, the Oregon Department of Education requested a waiver from the U.S. Department of Education that would have allowed school districts to skip state testing this spring. However, the federal government denied that request. Therefore, to maintain our federal funding, the Beaverton School District must offer testing to our students. Parents and guardians have the right to OPT OUT their students from testing. More on that below.

Shortened versions of the following statewide tests will be offered:

  • 3rd Grade: English Language Arts (ELA) & Mathematics

  • 4th Grade: English Language Arts (ELA) & Mathematics

  • 5th Grade: English Language Arts (ELA), Mathematics & Science

  • 6th Grade: English Language Arts (ELA) & Mathematics

  • 7th Grade: English Language Arts (ELA) & Mathematics

  • 8th Grade: English Language Arts (ELA), Mathematics & Science

  • 11th Grade: English Language Arts (ELA), Mathematics & Science

To maximize in-person instruction time for Hybrid students and to provide testing opportunities for Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL) and FLEX Online School students, the district will provide testing opportunities on Wednesdays (asynchronous learning days only) in May and June. Students will take the tests at their home schools; FLEX students will take the tests at the District’s Central Administration Center (16550 SW Merlo Rd.). Transportation will be provided for students who live one mile (elementary) or 1.5 miles (secondary) from their home schools; FLEX families must provide their own transportation. (Note: if a school plans to test outside of the Wednesday windows, the school will communicate an alternate schedule directly with families.)
