Surplus Sale Flyer

We had a great group of workers today at Elmira Elementary! Thanks to everyone that came to support EHS Track! Lots of progress was made in preparation for the students and staff to begin classes in their new school come January 4th. Also, a big shout-out to the custodial, facilities, and technology staff (as well as the EES staff) who are doing a great job and will continue to work through the break to ensure we are ready!

Due to some downed trees, Route 11: W. Sheffler kids can meet bus at Knight at 7:23 and 8:20. Call bus barn at 541-935-1969 if you have questions.

COME DOWN AND SHOWER-CHARGE PHONES AND HAVE HOT CHOCOLATE. Tonight from 4-6 PM, FRMS will be open for our FRSD families that continue to be without power. Come in the front door, and down in the commons area we will have hot chocolate, the ability for folks to charge their phones/laptops, and the locker rooms will be open for showers (bring your own products and towels). Please spread the word to anyone that may find this useful. Thanks.

Tomorrow, Friday December 16th FRSD will be on a 2 hour delay with buses on snow routes. This is mostly to assist the many families that are out of power, as well as to ensure we will be transporting in daylight. As with any possible school closure, or lack their of, , we encourage families to make the best decision for them. If based on your location or situation you feel it is best if your students stay home, just call the school and let us know.

Due to icy conditions, and an continued unsettled forecast, FRSD will be closed for Wednesday, December 14th.

Due to anticipated dangerous driving conditions in the morning, The Fern Ridge School District will be on a two hour delay Wednesday, December 14th. Due to the delay, we will not be on an early release schedule. Schools will let out and buses will drop off students at the normal scheduled times, not early release Wednesday time.  If conditions change and weather warrants a closure, we will notify you in the morning.

Predicting the weather in the morning is a “difficult” job at best, however the District feels like the risks are outweighed by the benefits of ensuring parents and staff have this information the evening before to assist with their planning.
