New Hybrid Start Date for 3rd, 4th & 5th: April 8
BSD announced that 3rd through 5th grade students will now be starting hybrid on Thursday, April 8. Gov. Brown's most recent Executive Order calls for school districts to start in-person hybrid instruction the week of Mar. 29 but made an exception that schools may start on or before the week of April 5 if the week of March 29th was used to train staff for a return to in-person instruction. The change from April 12 to April 8 complies with the Executive Order.
Please remember that hybrid starts on Monday, April 5, for kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade students.
CDL & Hybrid Schedule for M, T, Th, F

New BSD Health & Safety Resource
The Beaverton School District has created a new public-facing health & safety webpage that is the best source of information for staff and families. Here is the Link:
BSD Health Curriculum Update
Here in the Beaverton School District, we teach children important skills for getting along with others and doing well in school. In order to help our school be a safe and supportive place where everyone can learn, we also provide age-appropriate health instruction. There will be two primary resources used for this instruction: The Great Body Shop to teach the adopted Oregon Health Standards and fightchildabuse.org to teach sexual abuse prevention in accordance with Erin’s Law. Continue reading for more information on each resource.
Oregon Health Education Standards
The Great Body Shop, published by The Children’s Health Market, will be used to teach the Oregon Health Education Standards. It offers skills-based instruction that addresses physical, social, emotional, and mental health. Human Sexuality Education instruction is age appropriate, medically accurate, and relevant for all students.
Erin’s Law (Sexual Abuse Prevention)
An important component of our curriculum is to help children protect their bodies, get support when abuse has occurred, and report to a trusted adult. In accordance with Erin’s Law, we are educating children about sexual abuse and promoting awareness within our communities. The Oregon Department of Education has required all Oregon schools to comply with Erin’s Law. The Erin’s Law lessons address personal safety, touching safety, and assertiveness.
Previewing Materials/Opting Out
The process for previewing materials and opting out of instruction will be slightly different due to the pandemic. Your child’s teacher will be sending communication home prior to instruction in human sexuality and sexual abuse prevention to address this.
Thank you for helping us to make our school a safe and supportive place where everyone can learn.
