School Schedules to Change Next Year: Share Your Views
District seeking feedback on second draft schedule
To provide enough instruction time for students, fair and equal learning time at all schools and consistent schedules for families, Eugene School District 4J is changing to a consistent calendar and standard schedules for all schools in 2018–19. The schedule details will be decided this spring.

A first draft schedule was published in March for staff, parent, student and community input. The district has now taken the input received and developed a second draft schedule for further review and feedback.

The second schedule draft responds to staff and families’ input with a shorter early release on Wednesdays, earlier start and end times for high school, slightly earlier times for middle school, and as many elementary school start times as possible closer to their current times.

The draft schedules provide for elementary schools to schedule 60 minutes of recess and lunch within the regular school day—a little more time than currently provided at most schools and grades. Middle and high schools also would schedule about 60 minutes of lunch, breaks and passing periods during the school day.

Parents and students are invited to take a few minutes to review the second schedule draft and share your feedback in an online input form. Your input is important.

To learn more, review the draft schedule, and provide feedback, see www.4j.lane.edu/2018/04/standard-school-schedule-second-draft.

Office Reminders

Picking Your Student Up Early?
If it’s a pre-planned appointment just send a note with your student. They show the note to their teacher to be excused from class and then they drop the note by the office to check out. They can then be in the office waiting for you! If you forget to send a note or have something unexpected come up please call the office with as much advanced notice as possible so we have time to locate your student and get them up to the office. This helps eliminate unnecessary class interruptions.

ParentVue
ParentVue is available for you to be able to monitor your student’s grades. If you did receive your activation code, please contact the front office. ParentVue is now available for Android or iPhone users just go to the app store and download for free. 

Contacting Teachers
Do you have questions about how your student is doing? You can reach teachers through an email or a phone call. Simply go to the Staff Directory page on the Kelly website. There you will find staff email addresses and phone numbers.
