Public Meetings For Campus Improvements
McKenzie families,

We had a great first public meeting, but we really need your input as we look to our campus' future. 

For more than a year, the district has been working to assess and identify campus needs through inspections, assessments, and community input. We understand that after the fire, the needs of our community may have changed.

Over the next two months, we will be holding virtual public meetings to prioritize identified needs for our campus and listen for needs not yet been identified.

If a bond was to pass in an upcoming election, we want to make sure we are making the most of taxpayer dollars as well as available Oregon School Capital Improvement Matching grant funds. Your input will help us understand where we should be focusing our efforts. 

The next virtual meetings will be held on February 1 and February 15.

We hope you can join us for one of our meetings.

School Re-Opening Information

Our school re-opening committee will meet multiple times in the next two weeks so we can have an educated conversation about the safest way to welcome students back into our classrooms.

The State of Oregon has created standards for us to follow in alignment with the Ready Schools, Safe Learners Guidance.

Our committee will make a recommendation based on your survey feedback. The district administrators and board will then make a decision on the best way for our district to proceed. Our district is faced with additional challenges in returning because of the wildfire damage and we are taking all of your concerns into account.

We will have a better idea of how our district will proceed by the second week of February and additional communication will follow.
