A Message from Mrs. Donegan
All teachers at Trillium Creek are sharing lessons about “The Zones of Regulation” with their classes. The Zones of Regulation curriculum and strategies support students in developing their self-regulation skills. They will develop greater self-awareness of and proficiency in managing their own state of physical and emotional alertness. Students learn about different zones they might experience, when it is beneficial to be in particular zone, and effective tools they can use to make themselves calmer or more alert as needed. By teaching students about “The Zones” we are working to increase our students’ ability to independently manage themselves and optimize their learning experiences throughout the school day.
As we teach this, we are using common “Zones” language throughout the school. You may hear your child using this language at home as well. Below is a copy of the visual that we use with students when talking about the “Zones”. It is important to note that none of the zones are “bad” and that it is natural for all of us to experience the various zones at different times. The goal is to help students learn to recognize the zone they are in and develop the skills to successfully move to the desired zone. You may also want to try using this language at home to support your child in self-regulation. If you would like more information about “The Zones of Regulation” or your child’s learning about the zones, please reach out to your child’s teacher.

Safety Spotlight — Oregon Health Authority Issues Public Health Warning to Stop Using Vaping Products
The Oregon Health Authority has issued a public health warning urging people to immediately stop using all vaping products.
Public health officials have now linked a second Oregon death to the use of vaping products. The Oregon Health Authority urges Oregonians to stop using all vaping products until federal and state officials have determined the cause of serious lung injuries and deaths linked to the use of both cannabis and nicotine products. No vaping products should be considered safe. Until health experts can identify why people who have used these products have become seriously ill, and in some cases died, no vaping product should be used. State health officials will continue to work closely with the federal Centers for Disease control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration to determine the cause of deaths and illnesses in Oregon and across the nation.
To learn more about vaping, e-cigarettes, as well as what vaping products are and look like, please visit the district website.
