Fern Ridge School District

Following a multi-year process that included updating our Long Range Facility plan, conducting facility assessments, and multiple meetings with a group of community members, the District has finalized the project list for a bond that will be on the May 2024 ballot. If successful, the tax rate will not increase, it will stay at the historical average of $2.20/$1000 of assessed value. In addition, the District has applied for and received a state OSCIM grant that will allocate FRSD an additional 6M dollars (tax free), for use on additional projects to improve facilities for our students.

Lane County Public Works Letter to  Parents

school buses parked outside with parent vehiclesTuesday, September 6th, the school year begins here in Fern Ridge, and we are excited to see students back in the buildings!

With the return of school days, we also have the return of traffic congestion, especially at the beginning of the year when students are learning their new bus routes, pick up & drop off time, and bus procedures, not to mention while parents are learning and remembering parking lot procedures!

School buses are picking up their passengers, kids on bikes are hurrying to get to school, and harried parents are running behind due to the inevitabilities of life and trying to drop off their kids before work.  It’s never more important for drivers to slow down and pay attention than when kids are present, ESPECIALLY at the beginning of the year when it is new for many.

Please remember:

  • Slow down in the school zones.
  • Know the drop-off and pick-up procedures at your school.  If you have questions, call the school!
  • If you have the ability to carpool, it REALLY helps AM congestion.
  • Be extra alert when you encounter a school bus on the road.

Thank you for your help in ensuring all of our students are safe!
