Veneta Elementary School

Lisa Leatham, Principal


Parents who missed our new student/kindergarten registration day on August 13th, can stop by anytime in the next few weeks to register their child for school. If you have a kindergarten student that will be attending Veneta in September or a new first through fifth grade student, please plan on stopping by the school and registering them. Whether they preregistered their kindergarten child  in May or not, all kindergarten parents must stop by the school as soon as possible to finish the registration process. In addition, new students must also register for school. Please contact the office at 541-935-8225 if you have any questions.

The block party will be Saturday, August 23rd from 11 AM to 3 PM.
