Fostering Relationships Through Care and Connection

At EMS we believe strong student-to-staff and student-to-student relationships are a prerequisite to learning. We will be focusing on relationships during the first ten days of learning. Here are a few examples of what relationship-building looks like and sounds like at EMS:

  • Learning each other's names and how to pronounce the names
  • Establishing learning norms and how a class conducts the business of learning each day
  • Playing games and building a spirit of curiosity
  • Talking about their backgrounds, Summers, strengths, and weaknesses
  • Learning daily learning routines (where to turn in work, how to ask a question, how to submit a task)

It is important we take time to tend to our students mental health and wellness. We will be going slow at the onset of the year in order to build a strong infrastructure for the rigorous learning to come throughout the academic year.

Food and Cafeteira: Announcements


USDA and the Oregon Department of Education has approved the Estacada School District to offer free meals to ALL students in the 2021-2022 school year. Below are the updated program changes:

  • Only one breakfast and one lunch will be offered free daily

  • Second daily meals will be charged to the student's accounts for a regular breakfast or lunch meal fee

  • If a student selects only a milk without a full meal, they must pay $.55 (Milk alone is not offered for free).

  • Only children enrolled in the Estacada School District will be offered free meals

  • If a student is attending a school in the Estacada School District, but is learning from home for various reasons, they will need to notify their school's secretary to sign up for bus meal delivery.

  • We encourage families to continue to fill out the annual free and reduced meal application. If eligible, the family may have a reduction in fees for other school programs and it helps the District in receiving educational grants.

Does Your Student Take Medicine?

We want to have the most up-to-date information about your student's health and wellness.

If your student takes medicine, we need to know. Whether an inhalder, an epi-pen, medicine for ADHD, or any other item, please communicate with us so we have medical records on file and so we can administer the medicine if/when needed.

Our mission is to equip each student with the skills necessary to be resourceful and successful.
