Next week we will be conducting our locker pick up for students and book check-in. Please read the information below for details. All items in lockers (regular and PE) have been put in bags with students’ names on them for distribution.
6th/7th/8th - You may return any novels from the library that you are finished with for the rest of the school year, athletic uniforms and pick up locker items. There will be another day later on to turn in additional items still in use.
Please choose the date and time that work best for your family. Be prepared to wait if there are a lot of people there at once. Staff will work quickly while prioritizing safety and physical distance over speed.
5/18 Monday – 8:30-10:30
5/19 Tuesday – 11:30-1:30
5/20 Wednesday – 8:30-10:30
***All parents and students will stay in their cars during the pickup and drop off. Please pull into the parking lot and line up. Please make a sign with your child’s first and last name to have in the back seat driver side window. Staff will read the name and ask you to pull forward to have the items brought to your car. Gym Locker items will be returned with regular locker items.
If you cannot attend on one of the designated days, the make up day will be June 4th.
6th/7th grade - Keep your Chromebook and charger and textbooks over the summer.

Routine and Repeated Reminders
Ensuring that schools have accurate information to reach parents and other contacts in both emergency and non-emergency situations. Verification is important even if your contact information has not changed over the past year because the school may have incorrect information from a previous year.
Allowing parents to review the health conditions on file at your student's school.
Enabling distribution of electronic devices covered by the district's Technology Agreement
Updates to ParentVue/StudentVue Grades
It is hard to believe we are almost in May! I appreciate the feedback we have been receiving, and we are working hard to make adjustments with our process to serve our students best.
This week you will begin to see in Synergy a report showing whether your child participated in classes each week. Each Monday evening, we will update Synergy, and if your child has a P, then they were engaged in our work from the previous week. If they have a blank, then they did not participate in that class for the whole week. In cases where we have no engagement, we will be reaching out to you and your child to determine what supports are needed to re-engage. Overall course grades will display as N/A because we want students to focus on staying engaged and connected without stressing about overall grades. At the end of year, students who have been engaged will receive "P" grades consistent with guidance from the Oregon Department of Education.
It is an excellent practice to always check the school-wide planner for assignments and to refer to Google Classrooms for specific assignments.
Use this button to go directly to our schoolwide planner, which is updated by the end of day each Monday as a resource for students and parents.
We use twitter to share quick updates, the latest content, and more. Follow us!
