Vaccines Available By Appointment & Walk-in


COVID vaccines for anyone age 12+ every Wednesday and Friday

All Oregonians age 12 and older are now eligible to get a free COVID-19 vaccine. Getting vaccinated is a voluntary and vital opportunity to support the health of our families, schools and community.

4J is hosting Lane County Public Health to provide vaccine clinics at 4J schools, open to students, families, staff and other community members. Advance appointments are available, or community members can drop in to get their shot.

When: Every Wednesday, 4–6 p.m.
Where: Churchill High School Cafeteria, 1850 Bailey Hill Road

When: Every Friday, 4–6 p.m.
Where: North Eugene High School Glass Lounge, 200 Silver Lane

Update on Face Masks at School

Students and staff will continue wearing face masks during school hours for remaining days of the year • Masks are now optional in some circumstances like outdoor high school sports and graduation

Dear 4J families,

The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) and Oregon Health Authority (OHA) have released new guidance regarding face coverings for schools and school-related activities. The changes allow school districts to opt to loosen some requirements at sports activities, outdoor events, and for fully vaccinated adults when students are not present. ODE and OHA have been clear that individual school districts may continue to require masks universally at all times.

After careful consideration, Eugene School District 4J will be loosening some face covering requirements, under certain circumstances.

There is no change for students during the school day.

Students will continue wearing face masks during the school day, both indoors and outdoors, including during recess, PE, arrival and dismissal times.

With school ending in three weeks, each cohort of students has just a few more school days on-site. Staying the course with face masks during outdoor activities provides our students and staff with needed consistency and predictability, and the least amount of disruption to learn and adapt to new protocols in the limited time remaining.

Our district has also had few COVID-positive cases and virtually no school spread with face masks and other health and safety measures in place. We want to finish the school year strong and healthy.

ICYMI: Looking Ahead to Fall

School calendar approved • Planning for five days a week in-person

Looking ahead, the district is planning for a return to in-person learning in 2021–22. While the future public health situation and state rules for schools are uncertain, we intend to have students back at school on-site five days a week.

School likely will continue to look a little different, not a full return to the "normal" of the past. The district will continue to follow health and safety requirements established by the Oregon Health Authority and Department of Education, which may include protocols such as face masks and physical distancing of less than 6 feet.

The district will continue to offer online options for families who prefer all online learning. However, resources will need to be focused in our on-site school programs and there will not be an online program tied to individual schools like the Same School Online option that was offered during this exceptional year.

For families planning dates in advance, the 2021–22 school calendar is here. We look forward to welcoming our students back in the fall!

2021–22 Key Dates for Students:

• Transition Day for Selected Grades: Thursday, Sept. 9
• First Day of Classes (All Grades): Friday, Sept. 10 (why Friday?)
• Winter Break: Dec. 20–31 + Monday, Jan. 3 (potential makeup day)
• Spring Break: March 21–25

Free Meals Shift to Pickup on Wednesdays

Youth meal boxes offered weekly at seven pickup sites

Starting next week, meal boxes for 4J students and youth will be available for pickup each Wednesday at seven sites. Home delivery will no longer be provided.

Each youth meal box contains four healthy and tasty "heat and eat" breakfasts and lunches, plus five dinner meals. Vegetarian, no-gluten, soy milk, and other dietary restrictions or allergen options are available.

Wednesdays, May 5–June 30, 12:45–2:15 p.m.

All 4J middle schools except ATA. Choose the location most convenient for you:

  • Cal Young Middle School, 2555 Gilham Rd.

Curbside Pausing Parking Reminders/ Paradas en la acera Recordatorios de estacionamiento


In the mornings, students may be dropped off along the curb. At the end of the day, drivers can pause park along the curb to pick up their students when they come out at dismissal. Please note the following rules for pause parking:


• Drivers must remain in their cars at all times.
• Drivers should pull forward as space becomes available.
• Drivers should NOT stop in marked crosswalk areas.
• When getting in or out of a car, students must use the door on the sidewalk side. Students should never get in or out of a car on the driver’s side. It’s unsafe for the student and it slows traffic.


Drivers must remember to ALWAYS yield at the painted crosswalks and sidewalks.

• Los conductores NO deben detenerse en zonas marcadas de paso de peatones.


Al entrar o salir de un coche, los estudiantes deben usar la puerta en el lado de la acera. Los estudiantes nunca deben entrar o salir de un coche del lado del conductor. Es inseguro para el estudiante y ralentiza el tráfico.


Los conductores deben recordar SIEMPRE ceder en los cruces peatonales y aceras pintadas.

Parking Lot Reminders/Recordatorios de Estacionamiento


The parking lot is for families who want to walk their child into the building during arrival or who wish to meet their child at the end of the day at dismissal. Please note the following rules for the parking lot:


• ONLY cross using the crosswalk. Students and families should never cut across the driveway.
• Before using the crosswalk, students and adults must stop and look for cars.

Holt Family Hybrid-SSO Handbook UPDATES


To help families stay informed about schedules, protocols, and other new procedures for learning this spring, we've created the Holt Family Hybrid-SSO Handbook (linked at the bottom of the Holt website). This webpage will be updated as policies, rules, and procedures change.


Late Students to Office - Any students arriving at school after 7:55 need to check in at the office before going to class. All other entrances will close starting at 7:55 starting this week.


No Gaiter Masks - Be aware that gaiter style masks are not allowed and do not meet face covering requirements. Any student coming to school in a gaiter will be required to get a mask meeting 4J Mask Requirements before returning to class.

SSO students must attend a class Zoom or complete a Seesaw assignment each day to be counted present.


Teacher Office Hours - Teachers offer office hours twice a week for students or adults to get help.


Learning Zillion Parent Website - If families are looking for help with math assignments (this applies during normal times as well), 4J has created the Elementary Family and Community Math Resources webpage.

Mindfulness App- Stop, Breathe, Think Kids

Mindfulness App. ~Stop, Breathe, Think Kids

Mindfulness skills are helpful in regulating our emotions and responding to stress. There are numerous additional benefits for our children and for adults, such as improved immune system, regulation of stress, improved sleep, better regulated attention and emotions, and much more.


We've been focused on teaching your children about the brain and mindfulness. To use the app, your child will need a parent to sign-in with an email and enter verification code to indicate consent for the child to use the app.


I like this mindfulness app because children can find their own strategy or activity based on their interest or self-identified need, or even better, the child identifies their current emotional state and the app generates a strategy connected to the emotion. This helps children make a connection between useful and appropriate strategies to use in response to certain emotions.


Watch this short video on how to use the app: Breathe Kids video

Check out this link to learn about the app: Stop, Breathe, Think Kids


While Stop, Breathe, Think Kids is made specific for 5-10 year-olds, MyLife also has mindfulness activities for adults. See this playlist for adult-focused activities: Playlist of Meditation & Mindfulness activities
