Dear Elmonica Families

Jewish American Heritage Month

On April 30, 2021 President Biden proclaimed the month of May as Jewish American Heritage Month. “I call upon all Americans to visit www.JewishHeritageMonth.gov to learn more about the heritage and contributions of Jewish Americans and to observe this month with appropriate programs, activities, and ceremonies” (whitehouse.gov). Check out the Library of Congress website for resources to help recognize Jewish American’s contributions to our collective culture, history, science, government, and more.


Renters: Information for renters from the Beaverton School District Help Center

The Oregon eviction protections are set to expire at the end of June. This means renters will need to pay back rent that's still due. The state started taking applications yesterday for additional rental assistance through the Oregon Emergency Rent Assistance Program. People are eligible if at least one person in the household had a financial impact from the pandemic (a lost job, decrease in income), and their household income is at or below 80% of the area's median income (about $77,000 for a family of 4 in the Portland metro area, or $51,000 in rural communities).


Tenants can be approved for up to 12 months of past-due rent, and three months' upcoming rent. The payments will go directly to landlords, property owners, and utility companies.


The money will be allocated based on need, so everyone who applies for the program will go through a review process.


Assistance is offered to all renters, regardless of citizenship or immigration status.


Here's a link to the application and information on how to apply:

Las protecciones de desalojo de Oregon expirarán a fines de junio. Esto significa que los inquilinos deberán pagar el alquiler atrasado que aún se adeuda. El estado comenzo a recibir solicitudes ayer para asistencia adicional para el alquiler a través del Programa de Asistencia para el Alquiler de Emergencia de Oregon. Las personas son elegibles si al menos una persona en el hogar tuvo un impacto financiero de la pandemia (un trabajo perdido, disminución en los ingresos) y el ingreso de su hogar es igual o inferior al 80% del ingreso medio del área (alrededor de $ 77,000 para una familia de 4 en el area metro de Portland, o $51,000 en comunidades rurales).


Los inquilinos pueden ser aprobados para hasta 12 meses de alquiler vencido y tres meses de alquiler venidero. Los pagos irán directamente a los dueños, propietarios, y empresas de servicios públicos.


El dinero se asignará según la necesidad, por lo que todos los que soliciten el programa pasarán por un proceso de revisión.


Se ofrece asistencia a todos los inquilinos, independientemente de su ciudadanía o estado migratorio.

Beaverton Safe Routes to School Parent Survey (Repeat)

*Response has been very low. Please take this quick survey (link below) to help our school!


It’s data collection time again for Beaverton’s Safe Routes to School program. The purpose of the program is to make walking and rolling to school safe, convenient, and fun.

Parent’s and guardian’s input into how students travel to and from schools and their impression of the safety of the route is valuable as the city and county prioritize needed improvements for our roads.


The linked button below was generated from the National Safe Routes to School Center and will be combined with classroom tallies to give us a good picture of how students are getting to and from schools throughout the district.


The school’s survey will be open for responses for three weeks starting May 1st.

We appreciate your help in giving us information to make our program effective for all Beaverton School District students.
