January Scholls Heights Knights
Mrs. Thieme was an amazing educator and person who had a great impact on all who had the privilege of knowing her. She will be greatly missed.
Reality of Early Release- Snow days
If your child is a bus rider during emergency closure, do they know what to do if you are not home yet? Do they have a key? Is there a trusted neighbor?
In emergency closure situations, it is very challenging on school staff when you call to change your plan. There is also the possibility that our phones will be having difficulty.
We have already printed current plans for teachers. If you make changes, please do so in ParentVUE and notify your child's teacher of the changes.
Voice Your Opinion and Stay Informed on Boundary Information
Steven Sparks, who is leading the Middle School Attendance Boundary (MSBA) project for the Beaverton School District, came to our January PTO meeting and talked with us about the MSBA project. (Our PTO ran a live stream on their Scholls Heights PTO Facebook Page).
This is an important project because it is a comprehensive review of the middle school attendance boundaries. They have had a lot of public participation at MSBA advisory committee meetings from the northern part of the district. However, participation has been light from our community. The district needs more participation and opinions expressed from our community to our advisory committee.
As students in the north are moved south, it will have an impact on the middle schools in the southern part of the district. Therefore the project has the potential to change our middle school feeder patterns and we need to be informed and voice our opinions.

Too Sick Too School
It's normal for children to get sick from time to time. But when should a parent keep a child home? Please visit the Washington County Health & Human Services Department School Exclusion webpage for guidance, rules and communicable disease facts.
Below are some guidelines to help you make the decision about when to keep your child home from school. The recommendations are based on the guidelines provided by the Communicable Disease Program of the Washington County Department of Health and Human Services. They were developed to help prevent the spread of potentially contagious disease.
- Fever: With fever greater than 100.5° F; student may return when fever-free for 24 hours (WITHOUT use of fever-reducing medicine).
- Vomiting/Diarrhea: Any unexplained vomiting episode. May return 24 hours after last episode. Diarrhea equals three or more unexplained episodes of watery or loose stools in 24 hours OR sudden onset of loose stools. May return 24 hours after last episode.
- Cough: Serious, sustained coughing, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing.
- Rash: Any new rash accompanied by a fever. May return after rash goes away or clearance given by a health care provider.
- Skin Lesions/Sores: Drainage from a sore that cannot be contained within a bandage OR sores are increasing in size OR new sores are developing day-to-day.
- Other: Symptoms that prevent the student from active participation in usual school activities OR student is requiring more care than school can safely provide.
Home is the best place for a child who is ill. If your child is sick with a diagnosed communicable disease, please notify the school as soon as possible. This notification will greatly assist others who, due to medical reasons and/or treatments, have weakened immune systems and may require immediate and specialized care.
