A message from the principal
Like many of you, I am happy to be done with 2020. Thank you for partnering with us during these difficult times. I have hope that 2021 will bring more moments of peace, joy and normality. Currently the Eagle Point school district is making plans to increase in-person instruction. Please stay in regular communication with our team so that we may plan with you. We will try our best to make this next transition as seamless as possible but recognize that there will be many hurdles along the way in order to stay compliant with all of the safety requirements. We appreciate your continued patience, perseverance and support.

Statewide, ESDs have been collaborating to offer a comprehensive tech support helpline for families during CDL. The website is https://oregonhelpdesk.org/
Our families are still encouraged to use our 541.830.6700 tech support line during school hours. Lily Pineda covers the line and is multi-lingual so there are no barriers for our families. However, over the weekends and holidays, families may benefit from having access to the Oregon Help Desk.
We heard from the community that our PK-8 students would benefit from having an external keyboard to use with the iPad during CDL. The district has a limited number of keyboard that can be checked out to students. To receive a keyboard, please complete the linked application and you will be contacted by the technology liaison, Mrs. Pineda.
Does your student have Ipad insurance? Just $25 per year covers many oopsies that could be very expensive. This can be paid in the office by cash/check or ParentVue by Credit/Debit.
