Emergency Weather Closure Alerts

All weather related closures will be communicated through the FlashAlert system. Please go to to create and account and get prepared for any weather related closures/delays we might have.

Immunization Information

We want to remind all our students and families that Exclusion Day is coming up on February 19, 2020. Under Oregon state law, if your students aren’t up to date on their immunizations, or have not obtained medical or non-medical exemptions for those required immunizations, they won’t be able to attend school, starting on Feb. 19th.

The Neighborhood Health Center is offering an immunization clinic at Templeton Elementary School (9500 SW Murdock St, Tigard, OR 97224) on February 10, 2020, from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. They will accept most health insurance plans, or if you do not have coverage, will work out a plan for you. We will send updates with more information from the Neighborhood Health Center as we receive them. Thank you!

Message from Our School Nurse

Dear CFT families:

We are in full-blown flu and respiratory illness season. We ask that if your student is ill, please follow the guidelines set forth by Washington County with regards to school attendance:

Symptoms requiring exclusion of a child from school until they are either diagnosed and cleared by a licensed health care provider, or are in full recovery from the illness:

  • Fever greater than 100.4: students may return when they have been 24 hours fever free without the use of fever-reducing medication such as Tylenol or ibuprofen.
  • Vomiting and diarrhea: students may return after the symptoms have resolved for 24 hours.
  • Persistent cough, or serious sustained coughing that prevents the student from active participation in usual school activities, or student requiring more care than the school staff can safely provide.

Our goal is to keep ALL students as healthy as possible, so they can participate fully in school!

Parent Support Organization (PSO) Information

Lunch Wagon Donation Request

We thank those who have already contributed a lunch wagon to the school. We are still trying to reach our goal of lunch wagons for each class in the school. So please consider donating:

Our school is looking for donations of lunch wagons, one for each class. These wagons will help our school by creating a more uniform, safe and efficient way for our students to transport lunch boxes to and from the cafeteria while also decreasing the number of lunch boxes ending up in the lost and found.

If you, someone you know, or a company you are associated with, would like to donate a lunch wagon, please visit our Amazon Wish List:

Wagons will be sent directly to the school!

Your charitable donation is tax deductible. If you would like to receive a thank-you letter which includes information for your tax deduction, please send a message to after you have made your purchase.

Dining Night Out (PSO)

Our next dining nights out is with Papa Johns. Please see the following flyer for more detail.
