Twin Oaks Elementary

Family Newsletter

November 29, 2021

Dear Twin Oaks Families,


My apologies for not sending this Family Newsletter on Monday. I found the newsletter in draft version in my files.


The most important information I need to share is that students do not attend school this coming Monday, December 6th. The Eugene School District 4J School Board approved changes to the school calendar. Three additional staff work days were added for this calendar year: Monday, December 6th; Friday, January 21st; and Friday, April 15th. There are more details included in this newsletter. I have also included a revised 2021-2022 School Calendar.


Wishing you a wonderful week!

Ms. Denisa

School board approves changes to school calendar • First new no-school day is Dec. 6 for elementary schools and Dec. 7 for middle and high schools


Three no-school days have been added to the 2021–22 school calendar. These will be no-school days for students and full work days for district staff.

  • Monday, December 6, is now a no-school day for elementary students. It was already a no-school grading day for middle and high schools.
  • Tuesday, December 7, is now a no-school day for middle and high school students. Elementary school students will attend school.
  • Friday, January 21, is now a no-school day for all students.
  • Friday, April 15, is now a no-school day for all students.

4J prioritizes student learning time, but also must prioritize staff being prepared to support student learning time. The days will provide critically needed work time for staff addressing COVID-related needs and ongoing staffing shortages as well as their regular workload, so they can continue to make our schools safe and stable and serve students as well as possible.

The calendar changes are scheduled around trimester and semester transitions, when some students will change between online and on-site schooling.

The school board approved the calendar revisions during a special meeting on Tuesday, November 23.
