ACCOLADES: At our most recent school board meeting this past Monday night, FRSD Board member Andrea Larson recognized students throughout the Fern Ridge School District for outstanding academic achievement in a wide variety of areas. This included everything from OBOB Teams, to the EHS Valedictorian, and many other academic based competitions and achievements.  Thank  you very much to Andrea for doing this, and congratulations to the many students that were recognized.

CALENDAR:  The 2018-19 School District calendar was approved.  The calendar can be found at the following link: 2018-19 Calendar.  Some important dates include:  School registration, August 22-24, first day of school, September 4th, Winter Break, December 22 – January 7, last day of school is scheduled for June 14th.

POLICIES:  Several policies were updated, added, or removed.  One in particular I wanted to share with folks is a new policy “Weapons in schools-Staff.”  The new policy hasn’t been updated to our policy link yet, but will be soon.  The policy language that was approved however, can be found at the following link:  Policy GBJ  This policy addresses weapons on campus in regards to employees, district contractors and or volunteers.  In short, it prohibits those in the previously mentioned groups from possessing a weapon on campus.  The Superintendent and the School Board considered this policy, various options, and research before coming to the conclusion that this policy be adopted.  If staff or community members would like to provide feedback (either in support of, or against) regarding this policy (or any FRSD policy), please feel free to contact the Superintendent via email at:  gcarpenter@fernridge.k12.or.us and your thoughts will be forwarded to the School Board.
