WLWV Community Update
November 20, 2020
Fill Out Online Form by the end of TODAY, November 20 to Receive Meal Distribution Starting December 2
Beginning Wednesday, December 2, the West Linn-Wilsonville School District will transition to a new meal delivery system that will remain in place for the duration of the school year. The new system is designed to manage serving students at home whether enrolled in the WLWV Online Program, at home with CDL, or at school when we return to Hybrid or fully in-person instruction.
What do I need to do to get meals delivered to my home?
It is important that you fill out a meal delivery form for each student needing meals.
The easiest way to do this is to fill out an online Google Form. You will receive a confirmation email upon submitting. Or, families can also fill out a paper form by visiting any of the current school or bus meal locations.
Applications submitted anytime after November 20 may take up to a week to be assigned to a delivery route. Families waiting for their assigned delivery date may still pick up meals at West Linn or Wilsonville High School.
Learn more about the change to meal distribution on the nutrition services website.

Community Provides Feedback During Nov. 17 Gender Neutral Restroom Listening Session
As the West Linn-Wilsonville district staff and the Capital Bond team prepare to work with architects on remodeling and rebuilding plans for the various projects, restrooms will be one of the areas where some adjustments will be made. This includes adding some gender-neutral, single occupancy stalls in addition to the gender-assigned stalls already present in our schools. These will not replace all gender-assigned restrooms, and all options will remain available to students at all schools.
The district hosted a listening session on Nov. 17 to provide information and receive community feedback. Interested families can watch the video recording of the Nov. 17 listening session and provide input through an online Google Form.
School Board Adopts New Policy — All Students Belong
