Covid Test Kits: As schools and families adjust to an increase in positive cases, OHA, ODE and DDSD remain committed to school safety. OHA in collaboration with ODE is sending iHealth antigen self-tests to all schools in Oregon to be sent home with students. These tests represent one strategy to increase access to testing resources in our school communities.Students and their families are encouraged to use these tests if they develop symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or who have had a known exposure to COVID-19. These will be sent home with students.

The Summer Learning Program provides participants entering grades six through eighth grade with the opportunity to apply classroom learning in an informal, problem-solving context. Students will engage in hands-on, project-based learning and outdoor recreation.

Projects include designing a moving sculpture, creating a prototype of a shoe, and building programmable robots. This 16-day session will help students prepare for the next school year and provide continued academic learning through the summer.

The program runs Mondays through Thursdays between July 11 – August 4 and is for students who are beginning 6th, 7th and 8th grade this fall. Breakfast, lunch, and bus transportation are included.

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!


Message from Mr. Pease:

DON’T FORGET: Bring your Chromebook/charger and water bottle EVERY SINGLE DAY!

Social Media: We are NOT anti social media. However, there are a few trends that involve illegal acts. Please understand that these types of acts are not to be done at school (one involves actually assaulting people!). They will result in consequences – sometimes very severe consequences. Thank you.

Counselor’s Corner:

Here are some Wellness tips:

1. Sleep: make sure you are getting enough of it. It can really affect your stress levels

2. Exercise: it is super important to get outside when you can and at least go for a walk

3. Give yourself Grace: Be kind to yourself, try not to be too hard on yourself, this is a very difficult time and we are all trying our best. 

4. Routine: Having a schedule for yourself helps reduce stress 

5. Stay connected: Even though it’s a lot harder at this time, it’s important to try to reach out and connect with family and friends. 

6. Gratitude: Focusing on positive things can actually change your mood. It takes practice and sometimes it can be hard to find positive things but the more you do the easier it gets.
