District calendar adjustment
Dear Parents and Guardians,
I would like to extend a most sincere and heartfelt thanks to all of you for partnering with the school staff by bringing your children to school
ready to learn while following the health protocols. Last year we were one of the few districts that had an elementary school open its doors on the first day of school, and stay open throughout the year. Our middle school was also one of a very few schools to welcome students back for full in-person days. Our high school, as well, had opened its doors to part time days for all students. During this time we didn’t have a single outbreak. All of us made major sacrifices and pivots to make sure that our students were safe and getting the best education available to them. We all worked extremely hard.
This year, however, has been different. At the beginning of August we were forced to adapt to new mask mandates which created much controversy in our community. As cases began to rise we had many students who were forced to quarantine and every staff member stepped up and made sure that our quarantined students still had access to their education through online learning and packets being sent home. We are now beginning to see students experiencing learning loss and struggles behaving in the classroom. Many of our staff are working much harder and longer to compensate for the loss of learning by meeting with students virtually and creating packets. Staff shortages are creating a hardship on teachers and principals as they cover classes. In many ways our staff is working longer and harder and this year is proving to be much more difficult than last year.
The school board voted last night to give staff a much needed work day and an extra day off during Thanksgiving week. Many districts in our region, and across the state, are providing staff with a much needed break. At the school board meeting on November 8th, I recommended to the school board that Monday, November 22nd be a non-student contact work day and that November 23rd be a paid day off for all staff. The school board voted unanimously in favor of this recommendation. Please note your children do not come to school the week of November 22nd so your families may enjoy time with family and friends during Thanksgiving. The board and district administrators want to recognize the great work all of our staff are doing and have done the past three months.
Hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and celebrate all we have to be thankful for in this school district and community.
Calendar change: Week of November 22nd- 25th there will be no school for students!
Thanksgiving food drive information
Hello Warrior Family
No video this week, just a couple quick announcements.
Starting Monday, first period classes are going to compete to fill Thanksgiving boxes for families in our community. Each 1st period class will receive a box and a list of items needed. The competition will run from November 1st through the 18th. The class that donates the most food will win a home cooked breakfast courtesy of Mrs. Brock and Mrs. Bowers-Brock. And no expired food. We don't want that quart of milk that's been under your bed for the last three weeks. You know, the one that smells a little funky and has chunks? You can keep that and drink it yourself.
Homecoming this week has been a BLAST!! We have had a great time and even learned a little about eggs as hair conditioner. Join us as we wrap up our homecoming activities this weekend with the homecoming football game tonight at 7:00, the court crowned at halftime. Saturday, our volleyball team plays in the first round of state playoffs in Willamina at noon, and we would love to have a huge cheering section there. We finish the week with the homecoming dance at 8:00 Saturday evening. It’s been a great week, help us finish strong!
