Many of you may have heard the new order that came out a few hours ago by the Governor that can be seen here (Governor’s order).  This order closes all schools next week.  Through the night, our team here in Fern Ridge will be working to prepare for this.  Also on the table is closing school for tomorrow, Friday the 13th, 2020.  Please stay tuned here, and to Superintendent Carpenter facebook for the latest updates.  I will have an update and a plan in place for tomorrow and posted by 4:00 AM.

We will also have further information, including if staff will report tomorrow, if we will be able to serve lunch and or breakfast next week (I do not believe that will be possible for tomorrow if we close) and other important information for parents.

I understand the burden schools closing puts on some of our families that are most in need.  I know as a community many will step up and try to support others as best as you can.  Stay tuned and thanks for your patience and cooperation.

Gary Carpenter, Superintendent, FRSD 28J

  • Since the schools closing for a 2 weeks, one of which thankfully is spring break, will they add more days to the school year then to make up for them???

    • Hello,

      Regarding your question, undetermined at this time. The first step will be whether it is required by ODE in order to meet required instructional hours. If it is, then we will extend the year. If the legislature passes some sort of waiver, then it will be up to the local school board.

Sack Lunch/Breakfast Free to Anyone 18 Years or Younger

Fern Ridge Schools are closed by order of Governor Kate Brown through April 28, 2020


FRSD is providing free meals (sack lunch & breakfast) to anyone 18 years or younger at the following locations in our community:


VES Parking Lot:  Drive through from 11:00-12:30


There are 13 bus routes for meal delivery with a few stops per route.  The stops/routes are listed here.


If you cannot make it to one of these locations and need meals delivered to your house please contact your school office by 8:00 AM of the day you need them delivered and let us know how many kids need a meal, your address and a phone number where you can be reached.


The more folks that can make it to one of the many stops we have, the better.  However, we understand not everyone has this ability.
