Meet Your Teacher Event

This year is very different than what has been in the past. We would love to meet every one of you in person and embrace our upcoming year together. But unfortunaltly, the times don't allow for that.

But, several Hiteon staff have come together and came up with a fun and clever way for you to meet your teacher and the rest of the Hiteon staff.

Stay tune for the big reveal.

First Day of School is Monday, September 14th in Comprehensive Distance Learning

The first day of school for students will be Monday, September 14. Students will start the school year either with Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL) through their regular neighborhood or option school or with online learning through the new FLEX Online School.


We’re committing to remain in a Comprehensive Distance Learning-only model through at least November 13, 2020. All daily coursework, lessons and learning tasks in grades K-12 will be delivered through Seesaw or Canvas by neighborhood or option school teachers. When it's safe to do so, we’ll begin to bring students back to school in a Hybrid Model: two days in school and three days online from home. (English Language Newcomers and some students in specialized programs will be eligible for additional in-person instruction on Wednesdays.) If your student would prefer not to return to school in a Hybrid Model, he or she can continue to learn fully online from home via Comprehensive Distance Learning through the remainder of the year.

BSD Issued Device Distribtion

Device Distribution


To adhere to the Social Distancing Guidelines, please follow this process when picking up an iPad or Chromebook.

  1. Parents – fill out the Device Checkout Info Card.pd child(ren)'s name in bold dark letters, so it is visible out of your car window.

  2. Please drive to Hiteon if possible. If you walk or ride bikes look for the walk up station and wait there for assistance.

    1. Please remember that you have a two-hour window of time to pick up, so don't feel like you need to be there right at the beginning. It would be helpful to think about arriving at different times during that window.

  3. Please enter Hiteon from Brockman or Davies, with both entrances merging to one lane in front of the school. Please see the attached map.

  4. Once in line, the process from BSD-IT will be as follows- One person is stationed where cars enter. They read the name from the car that the parent puts in the window and relays that to the other volunteers.

If you have any questions, please contact Jenny Read-Emslie at jenny_read-emslie@beaverton.k12.or.us



iPad & Chromebook Information


iPad Distribution for ALL Kindergartners, First & Second Graders ONLY


On Thursday, September 10, from 10:00 - 12:30, please plan to come to Hiteon to receive an iPad for your child(ren) in Kindergarten, first grade, and/or second grades only. Below is important information about the process for getting an iPad. If your child received a Chromebook & power cords last Spring, please return it when you come to exchange it for an iPad.

  1. If PK-2 students signed out a Chromebook in the spring, we request that they bring the device and charger to the iPad Distribution.

  2. If the parents ensure they know their student ID before they come to the deployment, it will significantly speed up the process.

  3. Please click this link Device Checkout Info Card.pdf filling it out before arriving at the distribution. This will help speed up the process and help us maintain social distancing. The card is not required to receive an iPad.


Chromebook Distribution - 3 Possible Situations


Please do not come to get a Chromebook if you were provided

one from any Beaverton school last spring.


Three Reasons to come and get a Chromebook


  • Your child(ren) is/are a new Beaverton student in third, fourth, or fifth grade. You will need to come to Hiteon on Friday, September 11, from 9:00 am - 11:00 am.

  • Your child(ren) was a Beaverton student last year, but you choose to use a personal device in the spring. If you would like a Chromebook for this fall’s remote learning, come to Hiteon on Friday, September 11, from 9:00 am - 11:00 am.

  • Fill out this form for the above scenarios:

  • You have a Beaverton Chromebook from last spring, but it no longer works, so you need a replacement. Bring the broken Chromebook back, and we will exchange it on Friday, September 11, from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm. Please, fill out the google form below and Wesley will contact you to make an appointment during the time above.




The Student Help Desk is now Open

School Meals during CDL in the Fall

We will be providing free meals to all children, ages 1-18, at our curbside school locations and bus routes starting September 15th. For an interactive map to find a location nearest to you visit: www.beaverton.k12.or.us/meals

Servicio de alimentos para llevar

El comienzo de la escuela está a la vuelta de la esquina y nuestro departamento de Servicios de Nutrición ha estado trabajando arduamente para desarrollar un plan para proporcionar alimentos durante el Aprendizaje a Distancia (CDL por sus siglas en inglés). Acabamos de recibir permisos del Departamento de Agricultura (USDA por sus siglas en inglés) y con estos ahora cualquier niño (de 1 a 18 años) podrá recoger alimentos gratuitos hasta el 31 de diciembre de 2020.

  • A continuación, se muestra cómo se distribuirán los alimentos este otoño:
  • Los padres o tutores pueden recoger los alimentos de los estudiantes que no estén presentes.
  • La repartición de alimentos se realizará dos días a la semana: martes (2 días de comida) y jueves (3 días de comida) de 11 a.m. a 12:00 p.m.
  • Los alimentos se empaquetarán con el desayuno y el almuerzo juntos.
  • Todas las personas que recojan alimentos deben usar máscaras.

Los sitios escolares y las ubicaciones de las paradas de autobús se están finalizando y les comunicaremos cuales son pronto.
