Elementary Students Excited to Begin Hybrid Learning

Monday and Thursday were exciting days across the district as students returned to classrooms for the first time in more than a year. We captured the joy at Raleigh Park and Rock Creek Elementary Schools. Take a look!

COVID-19 Dashboard

Big picture
In our efforts to be fully transparent, the Beaverton School District is publishing data on reported positive or presumed positive COVID-19 cases among our students and staff on our website. This data is collected by the Oregon Health Authority and is published weekly in the COVID-19 Reporting Report. The reporting window for cases covers Monday of the preceding week through Sunday; the report is typically released on Wednesday. To protect the privacy of those involved, no names will be released. The data is provisional and subject to change as additional test results are received and public health investigations proceed.

Fake & Fatal

Save the date! BSD, in partnership with Beaverton Police, Washington County Sheriff’s Department and Washington County Public Health Department, will host “Fake & Fatal,” a community conversation about the dangers of buying illicit pills, powders and marijuana on social media that have been unknowingly laced with fentanyl — a cheap, potent and often deadly drug. This virtual event will be held on Thursday, April 29 at 7:00 p.m. In addition to local experts, we’ll hear from Cedar Park and Sunset parents Jennifer and Jon Epstein, who recently lost their son, Cal, to fentanyl poisoning. Please plan to join us for this important and potentially life-saving conversation.

Kids Are Everywhere. Drive Like It.

Big picture

As students return to schools for In-Person Hybrid Instruction this month, arrival and departure times may be different than you’re used to. While traffic and activities around Beaverton schools may look different, one thing is for sure — kids are out and about in our community. Some kids may be returning to school buildings, while others will be continuing to learn remotely and taking breaks outside during the day. Safety is everyone’s responsibility! Please be sure to drive carefully.


  • Stop for school busses when red lights flash. Both directions of traffic must stop.

  • Watch your speed. The school zone speed limit is 20 MPH.

  • Be ready to stop at all times. Kids may dart into the street without checking for traffic.

  • Stop for people at intersections and when asked by the crossing guard. Check your blind spots before turning and behind your vehicle before reversing.

  • This time of year is often rainy and foggy, limiting visibility for drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians, so keep those headlights on to help others see you.

Terra Linda Elementary Teacher Appreciation

Yolanda, a 5th grader at Terra Linda Elementary, talks about how she came up with the idea to create teacher appreciation cards. She was able to enlist the help of her fellow students to show just how much they care about their teachers. As a result, hundreds of student-made cards were created and handed out.
