Successfully Navigating High School: Start to Finish

Please join us February 22, 6:30-8:00 pm, in the Churchill Library.

This important event is designed to teach our CHS families how to help their students prepare for the future. Each year- freshman, sophomore, junior, senior- has critical steps about which parents MUST be aware, so you can help your child be ready for her/his life toward and after graduation. The presentation will be guided by parents that are right now in the thick of it. Child care and Spanish interpretation will be available.

Churchill Immunization Exemption Rates

Immunization Exemption Rates

Every U.S. state requires certain immunizations for enrollment in school and child care. Oregon’s immunization law helps protect kids and communities against 11 diseases: tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, chicken pox, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and Hib.

By far, most parents in Oregon keep their children up-to-date on their vaccines. However, parents can claim an exemption for one, some, or all required school immunizations.

In 2015–16, 11% of students at Churchill High School have non-medical exemptions from required immunizations.

More information about immunization and exemption rates is available on the Eugene School District 4J website at http://www.4j.lane.edu/instruction/ess/health/immunization/#exemptionrates


Información Sobre Tasas de Exención de Vacunas

Todos los estados del país exigen que los niños hayan recibido ciertas vacunas para poder inscribirlos en la escuela o cuidado infantil. La ley de vacunas de Oregon ayuda a proteger a los niños y a las comunidades contra 11 enfermedades: tétanos, difteria, tos ferina, polio, sarampión, paperas, rubeola, varicela, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, y HIB.

La gran mayoría de los padres de familia en Oregon tienen a sus hijos al día con sus vacunas. Sin embargo, los padres de familia pueden pedir una exención para una, algunas o todas las vacunas que se pide en la escuela.

En el año escolar 2015-16, 11% de los estudiantes de la Escuela Churchill tienen excepciones no médicos de las vacunas requeridas.

La información sobre las vacunas y las tasas de exención se encuentra en inglés en el sitio web del distrito escolar: http://www.4j.lane.edu/instruction/ess/health/immunization/#exemptionrates

PATHS 2 the Future at LCC

LCC PATHSOn Wednesday, February 3rd, Churchill’s all female class PATHS 2 The Future visited the Culinary Program at LCC. The tour began with a four course meal in the Renaissance Room, consisting of flavorful foods from India and Africa, including specialties such as pork vindaloo and spicy coconut fish. After eating, students interviewed the chefs (and found out the oddest thing they have ever cooked was a “pig blood cake”, which really was as weird as it sounds and tasted a little like iron). Finally, a 3rd year culinary student who happened to be a CHS alumni led a Q and A session. A fabulous time was had by all, and we left the experience feeling full of delicious food, as well as useful information.
