No School Monday, January 21
District Seeks New Executive Director of Project Management
District administrators would like to cast the net far and wide to recruit the next executive director of project management. "We are looking for someone who has at least 10 years experience in managing building construction and redevelopment for K-12 schools, specifically," said Superintendent Michael Musick. "We want the best."
Randy Miller will officially retire on January 31, from the position he has held for the past three and half years. "We are grateful to Randy for his work and I wish him well in his retirement,” said Musick.
In the interim, the district has hired additional support for the bond program to bridge the transition.
The job posting can be found here: https://www.applitrack.com/loswego/onlineapp/

Kindergarten Information Night (Kinder Counts) – January 23
Lake Oswego School District's Kindergarten Counts will take place Wednesday, January 23, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. at all elementary schools. This event introduces Lake Oswego parents to the full-day kindergarten program and Extended Day program and ensures that new families are connected to their school. All families with a child who will be five years old by September 1, 2019, are encouraged to attend.
This year Kindergarten Counts will coincide with the debut of the District’s new online registration portal. Rather than providing a paper registration form that night, parents will learn about online registration so that they can later enroll their children from home or wherever they access the internet (no registration via smartphone).
It's Almost Time! Online Registration Coming January 23
- Kindergarten Counts on January 23 at their resident elementary school
- New resources on the District website
- Flyers available at each school

Weather Emergency Communications
If parents are ever concerned about a student’s well-being, feel free to reach out to your principal. It is important to keep your lines of communication open and maintain strong partnerships between students, families, staff, and other resources.
SafeOregon also is an effective way to report a tip regarding safety threats or potential acts of violence to our students or schools.
(Students should also know that intentionally providing a false report is a serious offense.)
