Dear McKenzie Community, We apologize for the number of messages but we recently discovered that our system was only reaching a few families and we don’t want to miss anyone. We shared on Saturday that this past Thursday, Governor Brown ordered all Oregon schools to close March 16th through March 31st. Guidance states that these days are to be treated like inclement weather days. We are planning to resume school on Wednesday, April 1, 2020. At this time, we plan that this learning will occur on campus. We will keep you updated on any future changes to this guidance that may prompt us to implement a distance education model. We are providing breakfast and lunch to students and other children ages 2-18 years old for the 8 days they would have been in school. March 16, 17, 18, 19, 30 and 31, 2020. Meals will be delivered along bus routes at regular stops, please meet the bus at your regular stops. Buses will be operating on a 2-hour delay schedule for morning routes. If your normal pick up is at 6:35 am, meal drop off will be at 8:35 am. Not a regular rider? Put that in the comments on the survey and we will contact you with a drop off time. Please complete the survey as it will give us valuable information to assist in our planning and preparation: https://forms.gle/gH5bFqKH8UvA1mdx6 The safety and well-being of our students is our highest priority. During the closure we will be deep cleaning the buildings as a precaution. These are uncharted waters for all of us. Thank you all for being supportive of our students, each other, and our community during this time.

Meals will be delivered along bus routes at regular stops.  Busses will be operating on a 2 hour delay schedule for morning routes. If your normal pick up is at 6:35 am, meal drop off will be at 8:35 am.   We sent a prior communication this morning with a survey link to gauge community interest in receiving meals for you student(s).  Please complete the survey as it will give us valuable information to assist in our planning and preparation. You can also find the link here:  https://forms.gle/gH5bFqKH8UvA1mdx6 The safety and well being of our students is our highest priority.  During the closure we will be deep cleaning the buildings as a precaution.   We are planning to resume school on Wednesday, April 1, 2020.   At this time we plan that this learning will occur on campus.

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.
