Fern Ridge School District

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.

2 HOUR DELAY: To assist in planning for the morning, frsd is announcing a 2 hour delay (buses on snow routes) for tomorrow, Tuesday February 26th. We currently have no power in any of our schools. I would say the likelihood we are closed is high, but will make the final decision in the morning based on current information.

Debbie HarrisonDebbie Harrison has been an Instructional Assistant in our Special Education Department for 12 years.  She has worked with students at Elmira Elementary, Elmira High School and Veneta Elementary.  She has been married to her husband, Carl Harrison for 24 years.  Both of their children, Ryan and Miranda, are Elmira High School graduates.  Miranda is a sophomore in college and Ryan is a senior at Oregon State University.

In her free time Debbie enjoys collecting antiques, spending time with her husband (they are empty nesters now!) and kayaking.  She says one of her favorite things about her job is knowing that she is making a difference in student’s lives.   She also loves seeing the smiles on kids faces when they are with her or when she sees them out in the community.

In addition to her full time job as an Instructional Assistant, Debbie also works admissions for the home games at Elmira High School and she travels with high school students on their East Coast and West Coast trips.

The 2018/2019 school year will be Debbie’s final year with Fern Ridge students as she plans to retire in June.  After her retirement the Harrison’s are looking at purchasing a home at the coast so she can be on the water as much as possible.  Thank you Debbie for all of your work and dedication to our students.  We wish you all the best in your retirement!
