Dear Twin Oaks Families,


Eugene 4J Parent and Family Engagement and Partnership Survey: The Eugene 4J School District would like all families to complete a Parent and Family Engagement and Partnership Survey. Your feedback will be used to inform the efforts to continually improve our district, our schools, and our partnership with parents to help students succeed. If you have more than one student attending school in Eugene School District 4J and have had a different experience for different students, please fill out a separate survey for each student. That provides the schools with information specific to each student’s individual educational experience. If you have questions or input regarding this survey, please call the Instruction Department at 541-790-7550. English Survey. Spanish Survey


Morning Drop-off: Please do not drop your children off in the morning unless there is adult supervision. We have two staff scheduled to help with arrival in the lower parking lot to ensure that students are safe. Supervision is scheduled every morning between 7:35-7:55am. Thank you!


Volunteering at Twin Oaks: There have been fewer opportunities to volunteer at Twin Oaks since the beginning of the pandemic. As restrictions are lifted we will be able to welcome volunteers into our school, classrooms and library. Our hope is that in September we will be open to all volunteers. Many of you do not have a current volunteer application completed and the required documentation submitted. If you are considering volunteering in the future please review the information on the 4J website. If you have any questions please reach out to Ms. Jacelyn or myself.


Volunteer Application and Guidelines

Wishing you a wonderful week!

Ms. Denisa Taylor
