This is the Memorial Day Weekend.

I know that we are all living in Groundhog Day right now, and each day feels a lot like the day before. But this particular weekend has me thinking a lot about disruption and sacrifice and, most importantly, recovery and reclamation.

My dad was just twenty when Pearl Harbor was bombed. He was a sophomore at OSC (later OSU) studying agriculture so that he could later take his place at the helm of his family’s farm in the Willamette. My mom was a freshman at the same college, studying education. They had met at Woodburn High School years before and become steadies right off the bat. Dad, like virtually all young men at that moment in history, left college to go serve in the US Navy. He and mom were married February 2, 1942, and he immediately left to go serve in the Pacific. Mom left college to go to work to help support his family and her own.

Neither of them ever returned to college. They didn’t get degrees or ever again get to set foot on their campus.

After the war, they went to work raising children and because they had learned resiliency and sacrifice at such a young age, they were tough and service-minded community members their entire lives.

(Earlier this week on the anniversary of Mt. St. Helens’ I was reminded of my sweet Dad’s life of care for others. After the eruption, he and a bunch of his buddies from the Downriver Golf Course’s mens’ group formed a brigade of “roof sweepers” who went around to the houses of folks who could not on their own sweep the sometimes tons of ash away. There is a picture of him somewhere in a t-shirt the group printed up: “Don’t be a doofus – let us get the ash off your roof-us!”)

This weekend makes me think of my Uncle Jack who served in North Africa during that same war. He contracted malaria and a host of other maladies and was sent home to what ended up being several years of recovery – he had to learn to read and walk and speak all over again – a tough row to hoe for an outstanding athlete and student. But he, too, joined his wife and raised three kids and ultimately served as the President of the Oregon Bankers’ Association for many successful years and led Silverton and Salem communities through Rotary and school board activities.

My husband’s dad was headed to a tryout with the Lions football team after four years at Princeton wherein the Tigers claimed the national collegiate championship when the Korean conflict broke out. He, too, ended up in the Pacific on a destroyer and his ambitions for professional athletics or maybe law school were back-burnered into oblivion. But he, too, married and raised four kids and made great contributions to the Spokane community through his church and his many community service clubs.

I’m finding huge comfort right now in thinking about the later lives of these folks who found themselves so turned upside down by service to our country. Yes – they got plucked off the track that they had anticipated would lead them to very different and specific futures. But in each case, when the experience was in the rearview and they were returned to their homes and communities, they had the skills and determination to push into the new and build something remarkable despite the upheaval.

Happy Memorial Day. Thanks to those who have endured the disruptions, made the sacrifices, gritted through the recovery, and reclaimed the leadership of their lives. May we all learn from them.

Fall 2020 Schedules: Our draft Fall 2020 schedules are now available on PowerSchool for students to view. These schedules are in very early DRAFT form and we have 94% of students fully scheduled (we are working on this every day to get to 100%). The next step is to ensure that all students have the correct and desired classes by logging into PowerSchool to check that the right classes are assigned and that nothing has been missed (click on Next Year’s Schedule, then look at the Matrix view - works best on a computer, the app doesn't show next year's classes). Please read the information below on how scheduling and change requests work :
  • If you don’t know how to get into PowerSchool, email
  • If you have a hole in your schedule, that means you are one of the 6% that have scheduling issues. We are moving classes around to fix as many issues as possible. If we cannot find a solution, we will be emailing you directly to find a solution (the email will go to your MS365 account). This process will take time, so we thank you for your patience.
  • Your classes are confirmed, but the periods and teachers WILL change many times over the next few months. Sorry, but we cannot promise specific teachers or periods due to the fluidity of the schedule and very full classes. Please try to not get attached to a specific schedule because it will change every day (maybe even every hour). Note: There may still be a few classes that will be collapsed due to low enrollment. If you are in one of those classes, you will be put into one of your alternates.
  • If you signed up to be an Intern (Seniors only), we haven't assigned specific periods to that class yet. Over the next few weeks, you'll see it move into periods 1-6.
  • For errors or change requests: 1) if you need counselor support regarding the change, begin by emailing your counselor, or 2) if it is a straight forward change, you can email You can see the changes reflected in PowerSchool once they are made. If a change cannot be made due to period conflicts or full classes, we will let you know.
  • MANY of our electives are full, which is why you may have been moved into an alternate elective that you entered into PowerSchool when you selected your classes in January. We cannot promise that we can get you into specific electives. If you were moved out of an elective that you need for graduation (ex. you are going to be a senior and you registered for CTE because you need the credit but you were moved into Art, please explain that in your request).
  • If you are a choice student from outside Spokane Public Schools, you will not be able to see your schedule online because you are considered "pre-registered" and there is a glitch that doesn't show your schedule. You can and a copy will be sent via email (but it will change many times).
  • If you are planning on taking SVL, please go online to register soon to ensure a spot at There may be some changes coming for SVL registration with the closure, when we know more, we will let you know. For now, SVL is listed on schedules as “pending”, in August, the real SVL courses will be merged into PowerSchool. If you no longer want to take the SVL class, email Information about SVL registration can be found further down in the email.
  • If you are planning on enrolling in Running Start at the college, please contact your counselor to begin the process. Once you have a confirmed schedule, it is important to let us know that we can drop your LC classes (we understand that this process might be delayed as well due to the colleges being closed for now).
