Lockdown Drill in October
Our school will be participating in our first lockdown drill of the school year during the month of October. Lockdown drills are an essential part of our emergency preparedness, and help students and staff to practice specific actions that would occur in an emergency situation. Practice drills such as these are also an opportunity for our administrators and staff to collaborate with the Sherwood Police Department to continue improving our safety plans. You may notice increased police presence if you are on/near our campus during a lockdown drill, as our SROs do participate in checking our building security during the drill.
During drills, staff and students are secured within their individual classrooms/offices, and there is no movement in the building. No one will be allowed to enter or exit the campus until the drill has been completed.
For more information on District emergency response protocols and communication, please visit the SSD website here.

Classes will begin on October 12th and will continue until early May (there will be no meetings on non school days). Cost for the season is $25 and includes a club t-shirt.

Attendance Notifications Begin Next Week
Starting next week, all elementary students will be receiving an attendance report that outlines current attendance. Elementary school families will receive this report every 6 weeks via email. There's a very strong correlation between good attendance and success in school. On the other hand, students who regularly miss school are also more likely to struggle in school (Oregon Department of Education). Illnesses, travel and other circumstances for kids being out of school add up and every day makes a difference. Please let us know how we can partner with you if you find your child is struggling to be at school.
Again, these reports are meant to be informative and are sent to all families. You do not need to contact the school unless you would benefit from support for your child. Thank you!
Note: The attendance report will come from a do not reply email address (Sherwood School District Mailer) so there’s a chance it may end up in your junk folder.
Reminder - Meal Program Eligibility Expires Oct 12!
As a reminder, all Meal Program Eligibility from the 2022-23 school year expires on October 12. To ensure your child's access to free/reduced email eligibility continues for the rest of the 2023-24 school year, all families must submit a new application for the current year. The current Meal Application for School Year 2023-2024 can be found here.
If you have already completed a 2023-24 application but need to confirm your eligibility, please contact Nutrition Services at email@example.com. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
Seeking Parents for District Calendar Committee
The Sherwood School District is bringing together a committee of stakeholders who will provide input as we draft the district calendars for 2024-2025 and 2025-2026. We are looking for one middle or high school parent and one elementary school parent to join the committee. If you are interested, please email Steve Emmert, Executive Director of Human Resources, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
National School Lunch Week - October 9-13
Next week is National School Lunch Week! This week celebrates the National School Lunch Program, which provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or no-cost lunches to children each school day. The program was established under the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act, signed into law by President Harry Truman in 1946.
Here in the Sherwood School District, our Nutrition Services team served approximately 220,000 school meals to our students last year! We encourage our students to take a moment next week to thank our cafeteria teams for all that they do to provide healthy meals in our schools.
Volunteer Background Checks
Every volunteer in Sherwood School District must have a criminal background check completed each school year (July 1-June 30). Background checks take 7-10 business days to process. Background checks are required for each school year, so background checks completed prior to July 1, 2023 are not valid for the 23-24 school year.
Once your background checks clear, names are added to the approved volunteer list for all SSD schools. Please note: no approval notice goes out to cleared volunteers, so if you have questions about your submission or want to confirm your background check has been processed and approved, please contact the office of the school you would like to volunteer
To complete the volunteer approval process for 2023-24, please complete the form below:
