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

A message from Lane Educational Service District: Driver Education is an essential part of road safety. Unfortunately, driver education is no longer taught in Oregon high schools. We are trying to change this by offering teen classes (provided by private driving schools) in your district. These classes would take place after school, at the high school. Will you fill out this short survey to help us find out how much interest there is in your district? Follow the link to take the survey! https://lesd.link/Drivers_Ed

As many of you may know we had to evacuate campus today due to a bomb threat. During this evacuation all students and staff were safe and accounted for. Students and staff alike did a wonderful job of adhering to our evacuation procedures and protocol. Local law enforcement and partners have determined that the campus is safe and we plan to be in session tomorrow Tuesday December 18th. Naturally, there are a lot of conversations happening at home tonight with your students about today's events. The younger students may not know the specifics of the threat. Many of the older students however, may be aware of the nature of the threat. We will have a Care Room open tomorrow for student and staff use; a counselor will be available. Typically we would like to send communication home with students after an incident but due to limited access to buildings, we were unable to do so. Thank you for your patience, understanding and support. If you have any further questions feel free to contact the Elementary at (541)822-3315 or High School at (541)822-3313. We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow at our regular time.
