The Main Things

An MSD Staff Communication that Cuts out the Clutter!

June 7, 2022

New Attendance Zones Adopted, Oakdale Staff FAQ, and Graduation Wrap are the final Main Things.

Main Thing 1: New Attendance Zones Adopted

We are pleased to announce the Medford School District Board of Directors have adopted new attendance zones to take effect the 2023-24 school year when our third comprehensive middle school opens, Oakdale Middle School. Ruch Outdoor Community School and Medford Online Academy will continue to hold sixth grade, but all other sixth grade classes will be moved to Hedrick, Mcloughlin, and Oakdale. To view the new attendance zones, visit our website, here. To view an email to families from our three comprehensive middle school principals, click here.

Main Thing 2: Oakdale Staffing FAQ

The excitement builds as we approach opening Medford School District’s third comprehensive middle school, Oakdale Middle School. We've received a number of inquiries about moving 6th grade to middle school and what that means for staff. (Note: 6th grade will remain at Ruch Community Outdoor School and Medford Online Academy.) There will be more information to come, but here are our best answers to frequently asked questions up to this point.

Main Thing 3: Graduation Wrap

Congratulations to our amazing Class of 2022! In the Medford School District, we have a shared pursuit: all options are open and hopeful. We wish our graduates the very best as they move on to their next adventures, career, college, military and more. Watch the video above for some highlights.

We also want to acknowledge that we missed calling the names of three valedictorians at the North Medford High School Graduation, Keziah Richardson, Jillian Lunnen, and Molly Milligan. We are very proud of Keziah, Jillian, and Molly, and apologize for the oversight. We are committed to ensuring that all students are recognized for accomplishments in the classroom, service to our community, and activities while at North Medford High School and will ensure we do better in the future.
