Welcome Back to Spring Trimester!
We all hope that your and your student(s) got a well deserved rest, break from school, and perhaps some fun family time together! April is a long month with five 5-day weeks! There are many announcements and reminders included in this week’s update so please read all the way through…Remember, you can always reference these updates online at www.4jATA.wordpress.com to double check information.
Grades & New Schedules
Grades are available online via Student or ParentVue as of April 1. Report cards will be mailed home this upcoming week.
Schedules will be available the morning of April 1 during advisory classes. If your chils has an issue with his/her schedule, please encourage him/her to come to the office and speak with the registrar. No schedule changes are made (due to wanting other elective choices) for at least the first week of the trimester.
Please be sure to contact your child’s teacher with concerns regarding assignments, grades and classwork. ParentVue is updated every 2 weeks on Friday so that you may check student progress on assignments and tests. Teacher emails may be found on the ATA website, under Contact Us.
Absences & Attendance
It is important that parents call in student absences each day, regardless of reason for absence. We review attendance weekly and send letters regarding absences and tardies based on state law to do so. You may contact us by calling the attendance line: 541-790-5725 or emailing email@example.com Parents & guardians have 48 hours to notify the school of an absence.
Physicals and Health Services
Students needing sports physicals or just a visit for allergies and colds are able to attend the 4j Health Clinic at Churchill High School. Call 541-790-5227 to schedule an appointment. Also, check out the 4j website for more information: 4J Health Services

4J District News:
Help Shape Future School Designs
Thanks to voters’ approval of the 2018 bond measure, three of 4J’s aging school buildings will be replaced in the next few years: North Eugene High School, Camas Ridge Elementary School and Edison Elementary School.
Now is your chance to weigh in and help shape the design of the new schools!
Please take 5 minutes to share your priorities and values for school design and construction in the areas of Safety & Security, Equity & Accessibility, Health & Wellness, Sustainability & Resilience, and Teaching & Learning.
Share Your Views: Online Survey
Open until Tuesday, April 2
This survey is based on and will build upon the community input from a series of community workshops that were held earlier this month.
We also invite you to two community workshops in April to help continue the process of developing design guidance. Childcare, food and Spanish interpretation will be provided.
School Design Vision & Values Community Workshops
Stage 2: Thursday, April 4, 5:30–8:30 p.m. at Roosevelt Middle School, 500 E. 24th Ave.
Stage 3: Tuesday, April 16, 5:30–8:30 p.m. at North Eugene High School, 200 Silver Lane
Thank you for taking a few minutes now to complete the online survey, and for joining us for the community workshops if you are interested and available.
Your insight and input will help make 4J’s new schools the best facilities they can be for our community.
Planning for 4J’s new school buildings is getting underway. This is an exciting time. It also requires some critical decisions to be made soon about how, where and when to rebuild Camas Ridge and Edison Elementary Schools.
No decisions have been made yet. The school district is exploring possibilities and seeking community input on how to move forward.
Please join us for a community conversation with neighbors, parents and other community members to discuss options and provide input.
Community Conversation: Construction Plan Options
for Camas Ridge and Edison Elementary School
Wednesday, April 10, 6:30 p.m.
Roosevelt Middle School, 500 E. 24th Ave.
Childcare and Spanish interpretation will be available
RSVP & invite friends
School construction plan possibilities that will be discussed include:
• Construct the new Camas Ridge Elementary School building on the west end of the Camas Ridge site. Temporarily house Edison in the former Camas Ridge building during construction of Edison on the Edison site, then demolish the former Camas Ridge building.
• Construct the new Camas Ridge building on the former Willard school site at 29th & Lincoln, a mile to the west. Temporarily house Edison in the former Camas Ridge building during construction of Edison on the Edison site, then retain the former Camas Ridge building to house other programs.
• Create a temporary location for students, at the Willard site or another location, while the new school buildings are constructed on the existing Edison and Camas Ridge sites.

Please join us on April 10 to learn more and share your thoughts. No decisions have been made yet. Additional opportunities to engage and provide input will be provided before any decisions are made.
