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.

Students should not be on campus after school hours unless otherwise arranged with the school. We currently have Eagle Athletics practicing in our gym during the evenings. The gym is only open to Eagle Athletics at this time. If your student is not attending practice with Eagle Athletics they should not be on campus without supervision. Thank you for helping us keep our campus safe!

Hi Everyone, Last night at the school board meeting a parent posed the question of what the district stance is on CRT. It is not part of the state standards that we teach from. Here is a link from Oregon School Boards Association, OSBA. http://www.osba.org/-/media/Files/Resources/Equity365/2021-CRT-QandA.pdf?la=en
