Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I connect with my student’s teacher?
A: Communicating with your child’s teacher is highly encouraged. This can be done in several ways; with today’s technology, E-mail is probably the easiest. Phoning in to our Main Office at 541-667-6300 and getting a message to your child’s teacher will also work. Face-to-face contact, however, is the best means of communication as both parties have the opportunity to build a relationship.
Q: How do I apply for free and reduced lunch for my student?
A: To apply for free or reduced price lunches, fill out the application posted on the school district food services page and return it to the secretary at your student’s school.
If you have any questions, please contact Heidi Garcia, the Food Services Bookkeeper.
Q: What is the reason for the late start on Wednesdays?
