Correction to our last post. COrE meets the second WEDNESDAY of each month at 6:30pm. Apologies for the confusion!

In hopes of increasing communication and supporting our wonderful teachers, COrE (a volunteer group, formerly PTA) is organizing room parents for each elementary classroom. To facilitate this, they would like to create a contact list for each grade. Participation in this is voluntary but if you would like to receive updates on class activities and ways you can help our students, please provide your email address and phone number for text messages. Also, if there are ways you would like to help, or if you have any questions about COrE or our other projects, please contact them at core@mckenziesd.org. COrE meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm in the HS Meeting Room.

Along with much of the county, McKenzie is experiencing a telephone outage. We still have internet access and are receiving emails. With our spotty cell service on campus email is the best way to reach us. Please email hsoffice@mckenziesd.org or elemoffice@mckenziesd.org.

Recently, cougar sightings have increased in our area. We have been made aware of a sighting very close to campus and have spoken with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Staff have been made aware of the sightings and we have discussed best practices in how to handle cougar encounters. As the seasons are changing and days are growing shorter, we encourage families to be careful at bus stops in the mornings and evenings. To learn more about what to do should you encounter a cougar please follow the link: https://www.dfw.state.or.us/wildlife/living_with/docs/CougarBroch.pdf
