10 More Days!!!

A much needed break is in sight! Remember that for some of our students time away from us isn't always a good thing. The loss of the schedule of the school day and connection with you and peers impacts them greatly. If you have any students who you are greatly concerned about going into break, please reach out to Miranda so she can possibly touch base with them before our time off.

There have been some questions about assessment and grading/reporting that have come to me recently. I have reached out to the TOSAs and will share information as I get it. Right now I have not had any information shared with me.

Thanks to those who helped with the Chromebook and materials distributions this week. You are all such great helpers and your hard work is much appreciated.

Stay safe and healthy and keep our kids engaged and learning through the last day.

Safety Tips

Please follow the safety tips below, especially for closing down over the break. I think most things of concern in the classrooms have already been unplugged by district staff, but we want to make sure the building stays safe over the break. Remember that it was a faulty refrigerator that caused so much damage with the fire at Beaverton High last year. Simple things we can do ensure much greater safety.
