Raleigh Hills Newsletter

April 16, 2021

Message from Mrs. DeMartino

Dear Raleigh Hills Community,


It has been so joyful to be able to see students back in person. We are really looking forward to welcoming our middle schoolers on Monday! It is going to be a really special day when we will have all grade levels in the school building. We've been preparing everything to be ready to go. Just a reminder, parent drop off is in the lower lot. Buses will come to the upper lot. When students arrive on campus from parent drop off, they will follow staff instructions to come up the sidewalk. They will not enter the main doors. Instead, staff will direct them to the middle school entrance which is now the double doors just under the stairs to the right of the main doors. Students exiting buses will enter at the same doors. Staff will be on hand to direct students where to go. 6th graders will report to the 6th grade classrooms, 7th graders are in the gym and 8th graders are in the cafeteria. Please do not arrive prior to 8:45 for the AM cohort and 12:30 for the PM cohort. Teachers will be communicating directly with students about their schedules. Bus information will be emailed to you today. If you don't receive it, please go to this website to this website to find your student's bus information.


Middle school hybrid families, please be sure you have read and reviewed the hybrid handbook linked in this newsletter so that you will know all of the safety procedures for keeping kids safe and healthy at school.


And finally, this is the week! Our one and only PTO sponsored fundraiser is this Thursday from 7-8 and it's completely online! Don't forget to RSVP for the auction today!


Warm regards,

Jennifer

Masks

It is so important that students wear a mask that fits them each day. Please be sure that your student has their mask on as they are heading out the door. If you need a washable, cloth, child-sized mask, let your teacher know and we can provide you with one.

Clothes Closet at Raleigh Hills

Thanks to the generosity of our PTO, we have gathered quite a nice collection of clothing at Raleigh Hills. We will be opening our own clothes closet on Wednesdays from 10-12 so that families can come and get clothing, shoes, jackets, toiletries and food. We will set up under cover right behind the cafeteria. Please feel free to join us to get some of the essentials that you might need. Available on April 21st.

Health Curriculum Information - Repeat

Here in the Beaverton School District, we teach children important skills for getting along with others and doing well in school. In order to help our school be a safe and supportive place where everyone can learn, we also provide age-appropriate health instruction. There will be two primary resources used for this instruction: The Great Body Shop to teach the adopted Oregon Health Standards and fightchildabuse.org to teach sexual abuse prevention in accordance with Erin’s Law. Please read the letters below in your home language so you can learn more about these resources.
