Exclusion Day
Wednesday, February 20, 2019 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.

Do you lack health insurance or financial resources to pay for needed shots?  Here are some options to check in with; Lane County Public Health 541-682-4041
Churchill Clinic 541-790-5227
North Eugene Clinic 541-790- 4445

Vaccinate – It’s Not too Late
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 the last vomiting or diarrhea episode. Thanks for helping reduce the spread of illnesses. 

Track Starting Soon
Track season will begin March 4. 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, 2017). 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. Online payment for track fees is available too, click here.

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!

Winter Weather: Snow Day Decisions and Notifications 
When winter weather arrives, schools may be closed or delayed or buses may use snow routes. These decisions are made district-wide and are the same for every 4J school.

How the decision is made:
Typically, weather-related school schedule decisions are made in the early morning, before school, when current weather conditions can be assessed. We believe students and families are best served when we are open. Our main concern and the reason for any school closure is the safety of our students and staff.

How to find out if there is a change:
If the district decides to make a change to the school schedule or bus routes, it is communicated as quickly as possible in several ways, all well before 6:30 a.m. If schools and buses are on their regular schedule, there will NOT be an announcement.

What does the announcement mean?

School Closure: There is no school for students, although some staff will be at work. The district will decide by noon about whether any after-school student activities or community use of buildings may take place.

Two-Hour Delay: School will start two hours late and end at the usual dismissal time. If a delay occurs on an early release Friday, school will still be dismissed at the early release time. Buses will drive cautiously, adjusting to conditions, so pick up and return may be delayed.

Parent Choice: When school is in session during wintry weather, families are encouraged to consider the road conditions in their areas, make their own decisions based on safety, and notify the school if their student will be staying home. Parents’ decisions about student absences for hazardous weather safety reasons will be honored.
