Please click THIS LINK for a copy of the 2019 - 2020 School Year Calendar.


2019-20 Elementary School Daily Start Time Change

Starting next fall, all elementary schools will start the school day at 8:05 am and end at 2:30 pm.

Details about the elementary schedule are below.

All buses will arrive at elementary schools no earlier than 7:30 am and no later than 7:50 am. We are committed to having all students at school with ample time to eat breakfast and arrive in class by 8:05 am. This change will assist in scheduling buses and increase on-time school arrivals for middle school students

Breakfast will be available for students in the cafeteria/gym each morning at 7:30 am until the tardy bell rings at 8:05 am. Once the tardy bell rings, front office staff will have breakfast to go available to make sure that every student has a meal and does not miss classroom instruction time.

Cambio en la hora de entrada a las escuelas primarias para el año escolar 2019-20

Iniciando éste otoño, todas las escuelas primarias iniciarán la jornada escolar a las 8:05 am y terminarán a las 2:30 pm.

Detalles sobre el horario de escuelas primarias a continuación.


Todos los autobuses llegan a las escuelas entre las 7:30 am y 7:50 am. Estamos comprometidos a llevar a los niños a la escuela con suficiente tiempo para tomar su desayuno e iniciar clases a las 8:05 am. Éste cambio ayudará en la programación de los autobuses y mejorará el tiempo de llegada para los estudiantes de secundaria.

El desayuno estará disponible para los estudiantes en la cafetería/ gimnasio de las 7:30 am cada mañana hasta que suene el timbre a las 8:05 am. Una vez que el timbre suene, la oficina tendrá desayuno para llevar disponible para asegurar que todos los estudiantes tomen desayuno y no pierdan tiempo de instrucción.

School Meal Account Balances Due Now

Our school has a number of student meal accounts with balances due. This year, our District is experiencing an unprecedented amount of unpaid meal account charges. This has a serious impact on school budgets.

If you have received a notification of a balance due, please plan to make a payment online or bring cash or a check to the school office no later than June 19. Parents and guardians can review your child’s meal account online HERE. Payments are accepted online, anytime.

Please contact the school office or the CSD Food Service Supervisor at 541-757-5903 if you need assistance or have questions. Thank you!
