Health and Safety Reminder/Recordatorio sobre salud y seguridad

Don’t let the lingering summer sunshine fool you - cold and flu season is here! Many symptoms of colds and flu are shared with COVID, and sometimes it takes two or more home tests for COVID to register. The best course of action is to stay home if you are not feeling well and do not return until you have been fever-free for at least 24 hours without the aid of medication (if applicable) and other symptoms are improving. Free COVID test kits are available from your school’s front office. Have questions? Contact our COVID Resource team at 503-844-1784.

No se deje engañar por los días cálidos y soleados, ¡la temporada de gripa y resfriados ya está aquí! Muchos síntomas de la gripa o el resfrío son comunes también para COVID y, algunas veces, se necesitan dos o más pruebas de COVID para el hogar para detectarlo. La mejor decisión es quedarse en su hogar si no se siente bien y no regresar a la escuela hasta que haya estado sin fiebre durante al menos 24 horas sin la ayuda de medicamentos (si corresponde) y los otros síntomas estén mejorando. Los kits de prueba de COVID gratuitos están disponibles en la oficina de la escuela. Si tiene preguntas, por favor comuníquese con nuestro equipo de recursos de COVID al 503-844-1784.

Early College/Universidad Temprana

HSD Early College Students & Families:

We hope you’re well! It’s Week 3 of the term, which means we’re getting into the full swing of classes. Most classes are beyond the introductory phase and students have likely written a paper or completed a quiz, test, or lab. In just a few weeks, most classes will have midterms and we’ll be gathering Midterm progress grades. We encourage students to connect with their families about school and discuss how Fall term is going. Families, we also invite you to ask your EC student about their classwork, time management, and balance between school, physical activity, sleep, and overall wellness.

For Parents/Guardians: We would like to invite you to our winter term family event happening this Wednesday, January 25th. This virtual family gathering will focus on supporting the mental health of your student(s). We will have several mental health experts ready to share their knowledge and answer your questions. Please click here to see the flier.
