If you are in grades 9-12 please complete the library book request form. You will need to go to your neighborhood/home school to pick up your books.

Student Health Survey
The Beaverton School District is continuing our participation in Oregon’s Student Health Survey (SHS). The SHS is a survey sponsored by the Oregon Health Authority Public Health Division and the Oregon Department of Education. The survey will gather information about health risk behaviors of students in grades 6, 8 and 11. Our District uses these anonymous results to learn more about:
Student health and safety
Student mental and behavioral health
School climate and culture
Please read information about the survey, including a form to fill in and return by October 26th if you don’t want your student to participate. The Student Health Survey will take students 30 minutes or less to complete and will be administered through Canvas in Health/PE classes between October 26 - November 6 for middle school and in Advisory between November 3 - 24 for high school. Students will be provided information on support resources prior to taking the survey.
If you need to report an absence, please call our main number: (503) 356 - 3720. You can then press “1” for attendance and leave a message or press “0” to reach the office.
To be marked present, students should log in to Canvas and fill in the attendance form every day. Elementary students can find this on their Language Arts course. Secondary (6-12th) grade students need to do this for each class they have on A and B days, and Advisory on Wednesdays.
