FRSD Parents,

On Monday, September 24th, the district will be launching “FirstView,” a  new bus tracking and parent communications app for your smartphone or desktop.

We are starting by launching this at Elmira Elementary School.  Today, all EES students will come home with an informational flyer on a green piece of paper that describes this service, and how parents can access it.  It allows parents to track their students bus “live,” as well as have the ability to receive bus proximity notifications and custom alerts and messages.

We are hopeful that this small test launch goes well, and we will be prepared to send home information with all students K-12 and role it out in all buildings within a week or two.  You can visit the FRSD Transportation website for additional information at:  https://www.fernridge.k12.or.us/transportation-services/

Picture day is next week, Tuesday September 28th!

Flyers/order forms are coming home with students. You can also view it by clicking here.

Order forms can be returned with your child, or you can order online (see flyer for details)!

Make-up/retake day is November 10th.

Dear Families,

Recently, we learned that a person on campus has tested positive for COVID-19.  As members of the school community, we understand that this might raise concerns alongside a caring response.

At this time, we are conducting contact tracing (if they have been on campus during the infectious period) which includes but is not limited to: reviewing cohort logs, interviewing  staff, and checking cameras.

If contact tracing determines that your child is a close contact and needs to be quarantined, you will be personally contacted by school staff within 24-48 hours of the school being notified.

While it is our goal to keep students in school, please be vigilant in regards to watching for primary COVID symptoms. Primary symptoms include: fever of 100.4 or higher, cough, congestion, chills, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, new loss of taste or loss of smell.

We will keep you updated with any new information as it comes out, while meeting the requirements to honor everyone’s right to privacy.

If you have any questions, please contact the school principal or Nurse Elliott, our district nurse, at selliott@fernridge.k12.or.us.

A big welcome to Ashley Fischer, our new K-5 Elementary Counselor! After many years without a school counselor, we are excited to finally have one working in our schools. Ashley will be splitting her time between Veneta and Elmira Elementary Schools this year, as she supports our families and students. Watch for an intro letter from her, coming home with your student(s).

A paper copy is also on it’s way home with students.

Beginning Monday, September 20th, FRSD Superintendent Gary Carpenter will hold community Q and A Sessions be from 5:30-6:00 PM.  These will occur every month, on the night of the FRSD School Board meetings (typically the 3rd Monday of the month), for as long as they are helpful and utilized by the community.  Each month there will be 5-10 minutes of information shared by the the District, followed by approximately 20 minutes of available time for those in attendance to type questions in the chat. We hope in future months the district will be able to present information on a wide range of topics, however this first meeting will probably be focused on all things COVID-19, although questions on any topic will be accepted. Any questions we don’t have immediate answers to will be followed up with the following day.  We hope our families find this useful, please share this with your family and friends.  The link for each meeting will posted on the website as they approach.  The link for Monday’s meeting is: https://fernridge-k12-or-us.zoom.us/j/88212696504

Elmira Elementary participates in the CATCH program. The first Wednesday of each month is CATCH day! Students can order a CATCH shirt with the order form or by visiting this site.

What is CATCH? A little info is below, and you can also learn more online at www.catchinfo.org

The CATCH program provides a proven and easy to implement action plan for: 

  • Teaching children to make healthy choices; and 
  • Creating a school environment that encourages healthy eating and physical activity. 

The CATCH program provides in-depth materials for administrators, classrooms teachers, Child Nutrition Services staff members, physical educators, as well as other school staff members, and families to work together to create and maintain a healthy learning environment. CATCH works well with the WSCC model through its holistic approach to create a supportive environment in which healthy behaviors are not only taught, but also encouraged and supported.
