Superintendent’s message

Monday, September 3rd, 2018

Welcome back to school! Your student will be welcomed to his or her school by a staff of talented educators dedicated to challenging, supporting and guiding your student to reach his or her full potential. I am continually inspired and amazed by projects, events, performances and examples of student learning in our schools. You can expect engaging learning activities that allow students to demonstrate what they know, whether they are kindergarteners or high school seniors.

This year, District 6 is focused on how we can improve our facilities to assure that the learning environments in our schools support the teaching and learning in our classrooms. The district will undergo a formal facilities assessment to determine the condition of our buildings. This month, a team of architects and engineers will assess every building for capacity, efficacy of mechanical systems and “educational adequacy” (how well do our facilities support the actual learning activities and programs that take place?).

Many of you, along with our staff, can likely assess some of our facilities without an engineering or architecture degree—our schools lack HVAC, for example. And, the “café-gym-atoriam” might be an idea whose time has passed. We want to be sure that our students are safe, dry and warm (but, not sweltering). We want to be sure that the facilities that serve our students and community are efficient, flexible and reflect our community values. Therefore, we’re excited to invite D6 families and communities to be part of this process. Following the facilities assessment, District 6 will host community meetings to review the assessment and begin developing a long-range vision and plan for our facilities. The community meeting dates, times and locations will be posted here—the D6 webpage along with on our social media pages (facebook and Instagram).

In the meantime, I realize that the first few days of school can be challenging if the weather is hot and the air quality is poor. District 6 schools will use guidance from both the Oregon Health Authority and the Oregon School Athletics and Activities Association to make decisions about outdoor activities when air quality is compromised. The Oregon Health Authority produced this guide to assist schools in making decisions about outdoor activities, recess, PE and athletic activities. (https://apps.state.or.us/Forms/Served/le8815h.pdf. Our schools may use “rainy day recess” procedures and conduct physical education indoors when the air quality index is 100 or above per the guidance from the Oregon School Activities Association (http://www.osaa.org/health-safety/air-quality) and the Oregon Health Authority. Athletic practices and athletic contests will also be either moved indoors or canceled when air quality is at 100 or above. Below, please find additional resources for air quality.

• For more information on using the visibility index during wildfires http://www.oregon.gov/deq/aq/Pages/Wildfires-Visibility.aspx

• For information on smoke and wildfires in Oregon http://oregonsmoke.blogspot.com/

Your child’s health and safety is our first priority. Please contact your principal if your child is sensitive to smoke or has a health condition that requires additional precautions.

Finally, this school year is full of promise; the District 6 staff looks forward to your partnership in realizing the full potential of every student.

Annual test results for all District 6 schools indicate lead levels below EPA standards

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018

Annual test results of our most recent round of drinking water samples from each school are listed below. These tests, along with future tests, are part of the District’s protocol to locate any sources of lead in drinking water which exceed EPA limits. Remedies to correct lead levels which exceed EPA limits may include replacement of fixtures, the addition of filters, and/or other plumbing projects.  Alternative sources of water may be supplied if plumbing work cannot be completed in time for school.  This process represents our commitment to provide our students and staff with water which meet standards set by the EPA.

All District 6 Schools closed Thursday, February 22

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

Hazardous road conditions, including snow and ice, have resulted in all District 6 schools closed today, Thursday, February 22.   We recognize that a “snow day” is both awesome for kids and sometimes a hardship for parents who must make last minute childcare arrangements, and we make the delay or closure decision carefully.

After School Ski/Snowboard Program UPDATE 2/5/2018

Wednesday, January 31st, 2018

Dear Families:

With regret, we have decided to cancel our participation in the after school ski/snowboard program this year at Mt. Ashland.  We realize this a great disappointment, but the lack of snow, safety and the forecast make this necessary.

We want to make sure families are able to receive a refund, which may allow you to take your student(s) to another mountain for skiing/snowboarding.  Refund checks will be mailed to parents as soon as possible.  Please contact us if you do not receive your refund by Friday, March 2nd.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
