Principal's Update

Scappoose Students, Families, and Staff,

Hello Scappoose Community,

Welcome to the New Year! I hope everyone had a stellar holiday break and well-deserved rest! We are days away from starting J-Term! Schedules will come out on Studentvue on January 4th, 2023. There will be no schedule change requests for J-Term classes. The schedule for our days is posted below. We start back from break with an Early Release Wednesday. Buses run at standard times in the morning, and doors open for bus riders at 8:00 AM. Please see below for important schedule announcements, leadership activities, and athletics.

Go Indians!
