Parent Update 2/27

Friday, February 23, 2018

On February 14th, an ex-student of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, open fired on staff and students ending the lives of 17 people and injuring many more. At this point I would like to ask you to join me in a moment of silence for the seventeen lives lost. Right now many of us are confused, scared, heartbroken, and angry. But now is not the time for hate fueled by fear. Now is a time for love fueled by kindness. Love is an uncontainable force, but it cannot prevail without a strong backing. Please help one another, hug one another, laugh with one another, smile at one another, and most importantly be kind to one another. It doesn’t matter your political views, your religious beliefs, your gender, your sexuality, or your race. In the end we are all human, and in the end everyone of us deserves kindness.  Life is precious, so don’t waste your breath putting each other down, but use your hands to help each other up.

“We make a living by what we get; We make a life by what we give.” -Sir Winston Churchill

Winter Weather | Días de mal clima

Winter Weather: How to know when schools are closed 

Sign up now for snow day alert texts

When winter weather arrives, schools may be closed or delayed or buses may use snow routes. School districts decide early in the morning whether there is a need to change the school schedule or bus routes. These decisions are made districtwide and are the same for every 4J school.

There are several ways to find out if there is a change on snowy or icy days:

  • Text-message alerts via Twitter — to sign up, just text FOLLOW 4JWEATHER to 40404
  • 4J website, www.4j.lane.edu
  • KRVM 91.9 FM
  • Other radio and television news stations

If there is a school closure or other change, the school district will announce it before 6:30 a.m. If schools and buses are on their regular schedule, there will NOT be an announcement.

Parents of students who ride school buses that have alternate snow routes have been informed of what to do. Snow route information can be found on the district website at www.4j.lane.edu/transportation/snowroutes.

If school is in session, families are encouraged to consider road conditions in their areas and make their own decisions based on safety. Parents’ individual decisions about school attendance will be honored.

For more information, visit www.4j.lane.edu/weather.

Delayed Start Schedule

If a weather-related delay occurs on a day that normally would have been a late-start or early-release day, the late-start or early-release schedule will be canceled. The schedule for delayed opening on a normal day will be followed.

Churchill’s Modified Weather Bell Schedule (hazardous weather)

Días de mal clima en el invierno: Cómo saber si las escuelas estarán cerradas

Inscríbase para obtener textos de alerta

 

Cuando hay mal tiempo en el invierno, las escuelas pueden cerrar o comenzar tarde y los autobúses pueden cambiar a las rutas de nieve. Los distritos escolares deciden temprano en la mañana si es necesario cambiar el horario escolar o las rutas de los autobuses. Estas decisiones son tomadas por el distrito entero y son las mismas para todas las escuelas de 4J.

 

Los padres de familia tienen varias formas de informarse si hay un cambio en las escuelas en los días cuando hay nieve o hielo:

  • Antes del mal tiempo, puede suscribirse a las mensajes de texto para avisos (en ingles) — enviar a 40404 un texto que dice FOLLOW 4JWEATHER
  • Puede marcar el número de teléfono de emergencia en español, 541-790-7738
  • Puede visitar el sitio web del distrito www.4j.lane.edu (en inglés)
  • También, puede escuchar a la estación de radio KRVM-FM 91.9 (en inglés), o otras estaciones de radio y de televisión que también estarán anunciando si las escuelas están cerradas.

 

El distrito escolar anunciará al público antes de las 6:30 a.m. si las escuelas estarán cerradas debido al clima o si los autobuses han sido activados para las rutas de nieve. El distrito no hará ningún anuncio al público si los horarios y rutas no son cambiados.

 

Los padres de los estudiantes que viajan en los buses que utilizan rutas de nieve han sido informados de lo que deben hacer. Información sobre las rutas de nieve se puede encontrar en el sitio web www.4j.lane.edu/transportation/snowroutes.

 

Si las clases están en sesión, tome en cuenta la condición de las carreteras en su área para tomar una decisión dando prioridad a su seguridad. Respetaremos la decisión que tomen los padres de familia en cuanto a la asistencia a clases.

 

Para más información en inglés, visite el sitio web www.4j.lane.edu/weather.

Senior “Baby Pics” Guidelines—Due March 2

Churchill High School Yearbook Staff are dedicated to preserving the memories of the 2017-18 school year in our yearbook. We chronicle as much of the people, events, community, and culture as we have space for. We are also strongly dedicated to equity and inclusion for all students. This year, we are enhancing the tradition of Senior “Baby Pictures” and dedications. We invite all parents/guardians to submit a baby or youth photo of their graduating Senior along with a brief dedication. We are offering this opportunity free of charge to all, with one important limitation due to the limited space available in any yearbook: please limit any dedication to a total of 40 words. Due to pressing deadlines, we need all photos and dedications by March 2nd. We look forward to your participation in this time-honored tradition. Here are the details:

  • Photo and message must be received before Friday, March 2nd
  • Please send only digital photos or digital scans of printed photos
  • Important! – pics must be 300 dpi for our Yearbook printing plan
  • Send photo by email, along with your message, to squires_d@4j.lane.edu; please be sure to include your student’s name, your name(s), and your relationship(s) to the student
  • Apologies, but photos not received before the deadline may not be guaranteed a spot

Thank you! CHS Yearbook Staff 2017-18
