School Closure

1 2 3 10

Now that the snow and ice have melted, our district is focusing on the impact the four snow days had on student learning.

The school calendar was revised to restore two school days in June.  School will be in session on June 17 and the final day for students will be June 18.  At this time, the calendar for Seniors remains the same and graduation will take place on June 7.

The Fern Ridge School Board unanimously approved the calendar revisions during their March 18 meeting.  These changes will be updated to the district website calendar later today.

Thank you to our families for your flexibility as we work to ensure that we are providing as much learning time as we can for our students.

 

 

This morning as the baseball team was traveling to an away game there was a bus accident.  There were minor injuries with two students being transported.  Work is being made toward contacting all families but if you have a student on the bus and have not heard from them directly or the school please contact the high school office at 541-935-8200.

The rest of the students are headed back to the high school where they will determine if they will stay in school or go home for the day.  More information will be posted at a later time.

FRSD is on a 2 hour delay for today, Thursday March 7th due to icy road conditions.

This week we want to take the time to show our classified staff how much we appreciate all of their hard work and dedication.

Thank you to our all of our amazing Instructional Assistants, Secretaries, District Office Staff, Custodians and Maintenance Crews!  We appreciate all that you do each day for our students, teachers, administrators and school campuses.

Happy Classified Week!

 

On time start.
The buses will be operating on snow routes, both AM and PM, due to several of their “turn-arounds” being blocked in by plowed snow.

FRSD Update: Please pass along. Staff have done a great job today doing what we can to prepare buildings for an anticipated school day tomorrow. Below is some general information.
 
– Depending on your own situation/location, it is YOUR call whether or not your student attends school. If you cannot make it in, simply let school get underway in the morning and call in later in the day to excuse your student’s absence.
 
-We will try to make a decision about a regular or late start by 5:30 AM tomorrow, after driving the side roads.
 
-Parents should expect that snow routes will be used. If you are unsure what those are, you can find them here: http://www.fernridge.k12.or.us/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Inclement-Weather-Packet-ENG-Feb-2018.pdf
 
-The biggest problem areas will be our parking lots. With all the moving of the snow, we have lost many parking spaces. PLEASE TAKE YOUR TIME AND MOVE SLOW IN THE PARKING LOTS!
 
-Please allot yourself extra time in the morning, as drop-off pick up will be particularly slow tomorrow AM.
 
-Any staff that can carpool, please do so.
 
All information and updates will be posted here and “Superintendent Carpenter” Facebook page.   If we have a regular start time tomorrow, it will be posted here. If you DO NOT get a phone call in the morning, we are starting on time.

Due to continued unsafe conditions, FRSD will be closed tomorrow, Thursday February 28th.  District administrators and custodial staff that can get to work safely, please report to your buildings at 10:00 AM. 

The FRSD will be closed for Wednesday, February 27th due to continued hazardous conditions.

I want to thank the FRSD maintenance/grounds staff and building administrators (as well as our tech staff) who worked most of the day today trying to prepare schools for tomorrow morning.  We were able to plow the parking lots and shovel entrances at all buildings.  However, the expected weather, combined with the dangerous driving conditions on many of the side roads and hilly areas for our buses, necessitate us closing again tomorrow.  We gave it a good effort.

A special thank you to Justin and Sarah Wartenbee (and Wartenbee trucking) for coming down with some equipment and assisting District staff for several hours.
