Lake Oswego High School - cafeteria

Elementary Task Force Presentation - June 3
At the request of the School Board Chair we have moved the Elementary Task Force presentation to the June 3 Board meeting. It is important that the parent community have the opportunity to hear the results of the Task Force, but pre-election activities and the Blazer's playoff schedule may have a negative impact on listening opportunities. While the Board meeting will still take place on May 20, several items, including the Task Force presentation, have been moved to June 3 to give adequate time for discussion.

If parents are ever concerned about a student’s well-being, feel free to reach out to your principal. It is important to keep your lines of communication open and maintain strong partnerships between students, families, staff, and other resources.
SafeOregon also is an effective way to report a tip regarding safety threats or potential acts of violence to our students or schools.
