We have many after school clubs starting up…one more to add to last week’s list is D&D (that’s Dungeons & Dragons for anyone unfamiliar) Aimee Harrington will be hosting this club on Thursdays from 3:40-4:30 in room 140.
See last weeks listing for other after school clubs happening.
Tuesday is Picture Day…Check last week’s Update for link to LifeTouch or get an Order Envelope from the office.
Friday is Jog-a-thon. Keep collecting donations and sponsors. Rain or Shine! We run for “fun”draising. Money raised will support fieldtrips, classrooms, and library books.
Email Wolfpac@gmail.com if you are interested in volunteering Friday afternoon.
Students are expected to attend school daily. If your child is absent, please call the attendance hotline (541-790-5725) or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org on the day of the absence.
You will receive an automated phone message if your student(s) does not attend class and we do not receive a parent/guardian call.
- Contact the teachers for missing work if the absence is two days or longer. Teachers need at least 24 hours notice to gather work.
Excused Absences (Including arriving to school late or leaving early)
- Illness (excused with doctor’s note)
- School Function (i.e, track meet)
- Death in the family
- Family Emergency
- Medical Appointments w/a note from the medical provider
Students planning to be absent for five or more consecutive days must complete a pre-arranged absence form and receive the principal’s permission as well as their teachers’ signatures. This needs to be completed one week prior to the planned absence. Pre-arranged absence forms are available in the office or on our website. A pre-arranged absence does not excuse the absence.
Electronic Devices, Phones & Personal Headphones (earbuds)
Cell Phones, electronic devices and personal headphones are not allowed during the school day (8:50 a.m.-3:24 p.m.). They must be kept off and in lockers (not on person) during the school day. Failure to follow this rule will result in confiscation of the item. Parent/guardian will have to pick up the item(s) from the school office.
Hours of Supervision
ATA supervises students between the hours of 8:00 AM – 3:45 PM and during official school events that occur outside of regular school hours. The ATA Master Calendar can be viewed via http://ata.4j.lane.edu for a full listing of non- school days and breaks. Students are not allowed to remain on campus unsupervised outside of the school day, unless they are a part of an after school club or after school sport or activity. Students may not remain on campus past supervised times; this includes the track or the front entry of the school. Please make sure to pre-arrange all after school plans. The Boys and Girls Club is conveniently located across our parking lot as well.
ATA does not provide supervision on non-school days. When arriving to school before the first bell, 6-8th grade students have the option to report to the cafeteria, the family room, or the library (if open). Students should not enter the hallways and classrooms until the first morning bell rings. Library availability will be posted in the main hall for interested students. Our library is staffed strictly by volunteers so hours may vary.
ParentVUE gives each parent/guardian access to view their student(s) grades and progress in school. Once your account has been activated, it is good through middle and high school, within the 4J district. New account activation keys and information will be available at Check-in Day. You may also stop into the main office and request an activation key.
Once you receive your key simply go online to https://pv.4j.lane.edu. Click on the link “I have an activation key and need to create my account”. Type in your first name, last name and activation key as they appear on your Activation Key form, then choose a user ID, and password and enter your primary email address. That completes the activation process and you can then access your student’s progress as often as you wish.
*If you already have an account but forgot your password, please visit the website above and follow the directions to reset your password.
Student Messages/Office Phone
Please be sure your student knows your after-school plans before arriving at school in the morning. The office phone is only available to students in the case of an emergency.
Messages to students during class time should also be limited to emergencies. Depending on staff availability, messages called in after 2:30 p.m. may not be delivered.
Eugene School District 4J provides a nurse as a consultant who works at multiple locations. Our school nurse is here one day per week. In case of emergency, a nurse will be secured from one of the high schools or 911 emergency services will be called.
If your child is ill or has a minor injury, please keep your child at home and contact your personal physician, or utilize Churchill High School’s health clinic at 541-790-5227.
School Medication Procedures
- School personnel may assist a student with prescription medication only if it is in the original container, properly labeled by a pharmacist and a medication consent form is completed and on file. Contact the school office for medication consent forms and details. Medical inhalers may be carried by students with paperwork on file.
- Students may carry a one day’s supply of non-prescription medication in the original container. Students must carry a note from a guardian specifying the name of the medication and dose to be taken. Any medication containing aspirin requires physician’s orders.
- School personnel will accept changes in medication dosages or times only with a new properly labeled pharmacy container reflecting the dosage and/or time change as well as a new medication guideline form completed by a parent/guardian.
- Parents/guardians are responsible for refilling and transporting the school’s supply of medication and keeping track of that supply.
- Parents/guardians are responsible for the preparation of all tablets (e.g. halving tablets).
- Parents/guardians are responsible for picking up all unused medication at the end of the school year. Anything left will be disposed of.
Our volunteer program has been an integral part of our success over the years. Some areas in which we need support include education programs, parent outreach, library, field trip chaperones, and school dances. Our philosophy is that family involvement is good for our students and community as a whole. Thank you in advance for being an integral part of our team!
All volunteers are required to complete a yearly background check before volunteering. This can take a few weeks to process. You may also contact our parent group, Wolfpac, at Wolfpac@gmail.com. You may also click here for more volunteer check information.
