Questions? Please email

Only Oviparous Will Do

Do you know what "oviparous"means? Our Mary Woodward kindergartners do! They know it means "egg layer"or "any animal that comes from an egg!" They had a front row seat experience watching eggs incubate. They learned what happens at each stage in the 21 day journey from egg to chicken, and then, they got to watch them hatch into chicks! It was amazing!

Attendance Information

MW Attendance Line


Attendance Email:

If your student is absent from school, it is your responsibility to call the Attendance Line, 503.431.4720 or email as early in the day as possible.

Because of the shortened school day, the automated attendance calls will start very early for each hybrid session. Automated calls go out for unexcused absences at 8:45 AM for the morning session and at 1:00 PM for the afternoon session. Our attendance secretary, Mrs. Debbie McRobert must hear from you early to excuse the absence before the robo calls start. Remember, Wednesdays will continue the same as before, with a morning meeting online, and asynchronous learning the rest of the day. Hybrid students do NOT come to the building on Wednesdays, but there is still school and attendance is taken.

It's great if you email the teacher if your student is absent, but please email the office at as well. You can simply copy us on the email that you send to the teacher so you don't have to write two emails.

This is a good habit to start building whether your child is doing 100% online or hybrid instruction. Student safety is a priority at Mary Woodward, and it it essential that we hear from you whenever your child is absent from school.
