Planning for Fall


  • EGMS students will go back to a 6 period day
  • Middle School will be M/T/Th/F from 7:30 to 2:15 and W 7:30 to 1:15
  • Grading scale will change back to A, B, C, D and F
  • Lockers will be in use again next fall


There are many other things that we don't know yet and much of it will depend on ODE's update to the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidelines. More to come this fall.

Sports

Attention 8th Grade Athletes!

8th graders will need a new sports physical prior to August 16th, 2021 if they plan to do an OSAA Fall Sport or any other OSAA sports their 9th grade year. The physical MUST be on the OSAA Physical Examination Form. The forms can be found on the RHS athletic page.

Pandemic EBT:

ODE has coordinated with DHS to offer a simplified system for distributing information about the Pandemic EBT benefit.

Status of P-EBT for the 2020/2021 School Year

Oregon has submitted a plan to provide P-EBT benefits to eligible students retroactively back to October 2020. Initial P-EBT issuances will start going out by the end of May. Retroactive benefits will be broken out over the first 2 payments. Dates are contingent on final approval from the USDA, Food and Nutrition Service.

A new system is being developed to issue 2020/2021 P-EBT benefits.

Updates regarding P-EBT, including information about how the program will be implemented and when, will be shared at https://www.oregon.gov/dhs/ASSISTANCE/FOOD-BENEFITS/Pages/P-EBT.aspx as soon as they are available. Contact 211 for general P-EBT questions or to learn more about other food resources available in your area

This webpage is the primary source for information.


**PLEASE NOTE: All students receiving meal benefits (whether Free/Reduced by application or directly certified by the State), including all students enrolled in 2020-21 CEP sites (Lynch, Sage, Vern Patrick, Tuck, & Hartman) are eligible for Pandemic EBT benefits**
