Track Starting Soon
Track season will begin March 5. If you think your child might be interested in participating, please schedule a physical now. In order to be on the team, students must have a physical that is no more than 2 years (dated after March 5, 2016). You can call the office if you need to check and see if we have a current physical on file for your student. Students can pick up the track packets in the office or you can download the forms from our website.

Please get your packets in as soon as possible as this helps us to know how many students we will have on the team. We are allocated coaches based on the number of students on the team, so the sooner you get your track packets in, the sooner we are able to secure coaching!

Kelly Co-Pilots Meeting
Before the Co-Pilots meeting at 6:30 p.m. we are having the organizational meeting for the 8th-grade Promotion Party.  All parents interested in helping plan the party are invited to attend this meeting.

2018 School Choice
In Eugene School District 4J, our school choice policy is that students may request to enroll in any 4J school, provided there is a place available. School choice requests are accepted in an order determined by lottery.

Earlier deadline: The deadline for 4J district residents to be included in the school choice lottery for 2017–18 is January 31, earlier than in previous years. School visits will be scheduled in the month of January. To be included in the annual school choice lottery, 4J residents must apply between January 1 and January 31, by midnight. Non-district residents must apply between March 1 and April 1.

Exclusion Day
Wednesday, February 21, 2018 is immunization exclusion day this school year. This means that your student’s school immunization record must be up to date with all required immunizations in order to stay in school. Letters were mailed at start of December if your student is missing immunizations. Please return these letters with the dates of shots that were given. For questions or a duplicate letter, please leave a message for the health assistant at your child’s school.

Do you lack health insurance or financial resources to pay for needed shots?  Here are some options to check in with;
