2018 School Choice
New timeline, same great options

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.

Who needs to apply: All students who wish to enroll in a school other than their neighborhood school must submit an application. This includes incoming siblings of current students, students who have moved out of our school neighborhood or the district and want to remain enrolled next year, eighth-grade students who want to move up to a high school other than their neighborhood school, and non-residents who enrolled this year on a one-year inter-district transfer. Their enrollment is not automatic.

Who does not need to apply: If your student is already enrolled in our school on an in-district school choice transfer and has not moved out of the district, or is enrolled on an out-of-district multi-year open enrollment transfer, you do not need to reapply.

Come see our schools: If you or any of your friends are interested in exploring your school choice options, all 4J schools will hold tours and other opportunities to visit during the month of January.

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 the 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.

Influenza typically continues through April.  It isn’t too late to benefit from Seasonal flu vaccines The vaccine is available at pharmacies, your health care provider and Public Health Clinic, 541-682-4041. We encourage all children to be vaccinated.

Fever Free
Remember, your student must be fever free without the use of fever-reducing medications for at least 24 hours, before returning to school after an illness. Your child also must remain home until 24 hours after last vomiting or diarrhea episode. Thanks for helping reduce the spread of illnesses.

BEST+ Program
