Immunizations: All of the prior immunizations to be in school are still in effect. However, the COVID vaccine is not required at this time. However, if you want to let us know your student is COVID vaccinated, please send a copy of the vaccinated card, and we will record it. Bring it to the Student Center in the office. When we need to quarantine students, this record would be a tremendous help. Please know that this is COMPLETELY VOLUNTARY!


Remind your Student(s): Bring the Chromebook/charger and water bottle EVERY SINGLE DAY! Thank you!


The Native American Heritage Month planning team is seeking out staff, students, families, and community members that identify as Native/Indigenous to share their voices and stories with our DD community.


Please feel free to use the following prompts as a guide:


– What was your school experience with Native/Indigenous History and Culture?

– What has been your experience with Native/Indigenous History and Culture within David Douglas?

– Please share anything else you find necessary for our David Douglas staff community to hear.


Responses can be video recordings or written submissions if that is a more comfortable avenue for you. All responses can be sent directly to vanessa_crawley@ddsd40.org

Thank you for your time and consideration,

The Native American Heritage Month Planning Team

News from the Library:

Welcome Back!

Students have LOTS of ways to check out books! They can use the SORA app, they can log into the FLMS Catalogue put a book on HOLD and have it delivered to their ELA class, or they can come into the Library any time between 8:20am and 2pm to check out in person. If your student needs some help remembering how to put a book on hold, check out the Virtual Library guides, they will help!

Got Books? There are many books still out from the unexpected COVID closure in March 2019. If your student still has library books, you can drop them off at any school in our district or bring them back the first week of school, to any school.

To Log in: User is 6-digit student ID and password is their  8-digit date of birth (mmddyyyy).


ParentVue vs Google Classroom:

PLEASE use ParentVue when reviewing your student’s assignment completion, grades, and attendance. Google Classroom is GREAT for delivering instruction but is NOT accurate for student progress. If you do not have access to ParentVue, please contact our office at 503-256-6511, and they will get you connected.


Homework Help:

The Multnomah Public Library has free live homework help after school, just sign in and get help. Also available in Spanish. 

Did you know that all libraries offer free wireless printing? You can send items to the library’s printers from almost any device or location with an internet connection, and we’ll hold your prints for up to 5 hours. No appointment needed. No page limits. multcolib.org/mobile-printing

Khan Academy is a FREE website that you can use to get help on a variety of subjects from first grade through HS!


FLMS Mask Policy

Dear Floyd Light Family,

We are looking forward to having students back in our school very soon!  The health and safety of our families, students and staff remain our highest priority.  


David Douglas School District has been working closely with our Local Public Health Authority and the Oregon Department of Education to ensure all schools meet the required health and safety guidelines to minimize the spread of COVID-19.  Additionally, our school is working to best prepare for the unique needs of our student population.  This includes students who may experience a disability or have increased health needs that require individual protocols for safety.  

Face coverings are required to be worn in all school settings by staff and students.  However, some students who have certain health conditions or a disability may not be able to wear a mask throughout their day. 

Every child experiencing disability must be provided a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE)

  • Children who experience a disability are afforded additional protections under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act (504) and under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
  • Some students cannot wear a face covering or face shield due to medical or other needs related to their disability.
  • These students must be provided appropriate accommodations to allow them to participate in their education to the fullest extent.

If you see a student who is not wearing a face covering at school, please know that we are working to maintain physical distancing and implement universal precautions for safety as outlined by our Local Public Health Authority.   We are committed to doing everything we can to ensure safety for everyone.  If you have additional questions, please contact me.  

Mr. Pease, Principal
