Dear Families,

Happy New Year!


Over the past year, the school board has been working with community members to complete boundary adjustments. The school board approved new middle school boundaries in December. There have been several articles in the BSD Weekly parent newsletters, however, I wanted to make sure our community received the information. The middle school boundary adjustments will impact Elmonica students.


School Board Approves Middle School Boundaries

The School Board voted to approve the Superintendent’s middle school boundary recommendation. The new middle school boundary map complies with the objectives issued by the School Board and the factors contained in Board Policy JC. The primary objectives were to create an attendance boundary for the new middle school located in the Timberland neighborhood and to reduce enrollment at Stoller Middle School to approximately 90% of its permanent capacity.


School Newsletter

You may notice some changes in the newsletter. Elmonica staff has provided feedback to help increase access, increase readership, and streamline communication. If you have any thoughts on how to make the newsletter more effective, please email me your ideas and suggestions.


In-Person Instruction

Today a letter went out to the community this morning updating families on the future in-person instruction. Please find the letter in your email or view it on the District's webpage. If you have any questions or comments for District office leadership, please feel free to send an email to community-involvement@beaverton.k12.or.us.


Sincerely,


Kalay McNamee, Principal
