Earthquake drill

We want you to know that at 10:21 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 21, your students will take part in The Great Oregon ShakeOut along with 500,000 other registered participants across the state. The ShakeOut is a drill that teaches us how to stay safe during an earthquake with three easy steps: Drop! Cover! Hold on! After the drill, students will practice evacuating the building.

We do not want students to experience worry or fear because of the drill. If you have younger children, it might be helpful to practice together ahead of time. You can find more information on The Great Oregon ShakeOut here.

Thank you, as always, for your partnership.

NEW CANBY AREA Bus Transportation

Did you know that there is a FREE Canby Loop bus? Students can ride the bus to school for FREE. There are many stops. Here are a few streets where there are stops: 13th, Territorial, and Township. Please use the attached link for more information and bus stops and times.

Attendance/Sick Students/Appointments

We have processes in place to help us track students in the event of illness or an early departure from school. If a student is sick during class, they should let their teacher know and then go to the main office. Our staff will take them to the health room and check them out and contact the family for pick up if needed. If a student needs to be excused for an appointment or any other reason, please notify our main office at 503.263.7170 as soon as possible. When you arrive at the school please call and we will call your student down. This allows the student to not miss instruction while waiting in the office.

Join Us

While parent volunteering continues to be on hold until further notice, we do have employment opportunities in our schools for part-time positions like instructional assistants, nutrition services, custodians and more. We are also seeking on-call substitutes for those positions, which would provide even greater flexibility. English and Spanish speakers are welcome to apply.
