Student Chromebook and iPad End of the School Year Plan
Elementary Students (Grades K-5)
Elementary students need to return their Chromebooks and iPads (with the power cord and stylus on the newer Chromebooks) to Tumwater (Timberland) at the end of the school year. Students who are in summer school can keep their device for summer school.

Annual Parent Survey
Please take a few moments to complete the BSD Annual Parent Survey! Our goal is to ensure that every member of our school community feels welcomed, valued, and informed, so it is important for all parents/guardians to complete the survey.
A link to the 2021 Annual Parent Survey was sent to all valid parent email addresses via School Messenger on Sunday, May 16. The deadline to participate is Wednesday, June 2.
Dear FLEX Families, The Oregon eviction protections are set to expire at the end of June. This means renters will need to pay back rent that's still due. The state started taking applications yesterday for additional rental assistance through the Oregon Emergency Rent Assistance Program. People are eligible if at least one person in the household had a financial impact from the pandemic (a lost job, decrease in income), and their household income is at or below 80% of the area's median income (about $77,000 for a family of 4 in the Portland metro area, or $51,000 in rural communities).
Tenants can be approved for up to 12 months of past-due rent, and three months' upcoming rent. The payments will go directly to landlords, property owners, and utility companies.
The money will be allocated based on need, so everyone who applies for the program will go through a review process.
Assistance is offered to all renters, regardless of citizenship or immigration status.
Here's a link to the application and information on how to apply:
