A Heart Full of Gratitude
Staff Professional Development
Within the next few weeks, we will take many opportunities for students to build writing stamina and academic concepts using "quick writes".
We are excited to announce that the SafeOregon app will be available on all student iPads starting this week.
SafeOregon is a 24-hour anonymous tip-line individuals can use if they see or hear about instances of bullying, violence, threats, drug use, suicidal thoughts and more. The goal is to keep students safe by preventing threats from coming to fruition.
There are a number of ways to report, including:
Texting or calling 844-4-SAFE-OR (844-472-3367)
Online at safeoregon.com
Via the SafeOregon app (available on all student iPads this week)
Please help us keep Canby’s kids safe by utilizing this program.

General COVID-19 Protocol Updates
Thank you all for the patience and determination it takes as we work through the protocols required to be able to have students in school five days a week, all day! For the time being, we are asked by OHA and ODE to implement the following:
- Utilize outdoor eating options (breakfast and lunch outside)
- Wear masks indoors (unless eating).
- Optionally wear masks outside..
- Remain 3ft apart in classrooms
- Utilize outdoor spaces as best as possible
We encourage students to bring layers of clothing as the weather begins to change.
