The annual Jogathon is on Thursday, Oct. 20. All students will be running during their scheduled P.E. times ( see attached schedule). We recommend that all students get plenty of sleep the night before, eat a good breakfast, and wear running shoes.
Parents are invited to come and cheer on our Cheetahs!
Annual state testing notice
Each year, students in grades three through eight and grade 11 take state tests in English language arts and math. Students in grades five, eight and in high school also take a state science test. The tests measure students’ knowledge of state standards and give the state information about how schools are performing. Information from the Oregon Department of Education regarding parents’ right to opt students out of some state testing is available online.

State law requires schools to conduct two lockdown drills per year. Schools will be conducting a lockdown drill within the first two weeks of the school year, and again within the first two weeks after winter break. These drills will not be a simulation of a threat and are not intended to scare students. We do want students to take the drills seriously so they are familiar with lockdown routines and procedures.
If you have safety concerns, or notice any gaps in our security, then please tell the school principal. As parents, you have a valuable perspective that can help improve safety procedures. As gaps are identified, we will continuously refine and improve our lockdown procedures.
