Principal's Message

Dear Terra Linda Families,

We are looking forward to seeing everyone on Thursday evening this week! In classrooms, you will be able to meet your teacher, drop off school supplies, and fill out a Going Home Plan so we know how your student will go home from school each day. On the playground, students will be able to participate in activities organized by Play.Fit.Fun staff, eat a picnic dinner brought from home, purchase dinner from the Koi Fusion Food Truck (Menu Here), and check out our Resource Fair under the covered play area.

Teachers will be in classrooms from 4:30-6:00pm. At 6:00 they will head out to the playground. To assist with social distancing, please try to arrive according to your last name:

  • Last Names A-F: 4:30-5:00
  • Last Names G-N 5:00-5:30
  • Last Names O-Z 5:30-6:00

Visiting Classrooms

  • A maximum of three families can be inside a classroom at the same time.
  • Families are limited to 5 minutes each inside a classroom.


We will have restrooms available during the event in the module. Access is through the main double doors near the playground.

Outdoor Activities

Outdoor activities on our playground will be available from 4:30-6:30pm. It is important that all students, staff, and families follow BSD rules for gatherings:

  • Masks must be worn both indoors and outdoors unless actively eating or drinking
  • Family groups must remain at least 6 feet apart, especially when eating
  • Students must remain at least 3 feet apart while wearing a mask or 6 feet apart while actively eating or drinking

Return to In-Person Family Handbook

Teacher Assignments

Your student's teacher will send you an email message through ParentSquare after 3:30pm on Wednesday, September 1. Be sure to watch your email or ParentSquare app!

Do you need help with School Supplies?

Please call us at Terra Linda if you are unable to purchase school supplies this year or need a backpack or water bottle. We will make sure your student has what they need on the first day of school.

Student Medications

If your student needs to have medications available during the school day, please bring them to the office anytime Monday-Friday between 8:00am and 4:00pm. A parent or guardian must sign a form at drop off. You are also welcome to drop them off at Meet Your Teacher Night on September 2.

Prescription medications must be in the original prescription packaging with the student's name listed. Any over the counter medications (Advil, cough syrup, etc) must be in a new, unopened container along with a child's dosage listed on the packaging.

Students cannot bring their own medications to school without prior permission from our office and/or school nurse.

Preparing for the First Day of School

Please write your student's name on everything they might leave behind! This includes jackets, sweatshirts, lunch boxes, water bottles, and backpacks. We will return items to students if we can find their name on the item. Thank you! We have a lost and found cart in the lobby. Unclaimed items are discarded or sent to BSD Clothes for Kids a few times each year.

ParentSquare for School Communication This Year

The Beaverton School District is now using the ParentSquare platform for district, school and teacher communications, primarily with email, text and app notifications. ParentSquare automatically generates an account for each parent/guardian, using their preferred email address and phone number. Download the app or log into the ParentSquare web portal. For more information, please visit the BSD ParentSquare webpage.

Be sure to customize your settings to match your preferences!
