Looking Ahead: 2018 School Choice

New timeline, same great options

In Eugene School District 4J, our school choice policy is that students may request to enroll in any 4J school, provided there is a place available. School choice requests are accepted in an order determined by lottery.

Earlier deadline: The deadline for 4J district residents to be included in the school choice lottery for 2017–18 is January 31, earlier than in previous years. School visits will be scheduled in the month of January. To be included in the annual school choice lottery, 4J residents must apply between January 1 and January 31, by midnight. Non-district residents must apply between March 1 and April 1.

Who needs to apply: All students who wish to enroll in a school other than their neighborhood school must submit an application. This includes incoming siblings of current students, students who have moved out of our school neighborhood or the district and want to remain enrolled next year, eighth grade students who want to move up to a high school other than their neighborhood school, and non-residents who enrolled this year on a one-year interdistrict transfer. Their enrollment is not automatic.

Who does not need to apply: If your student is already enrolled in our school on an in-district school choice transfer and has not moved out of the district, or is enrolled on an out-of-district multi-year open enrollment transfer, you do not need to reapply.

Come see our schools: If you or any of your friends are interested in exploring your school choice options, the district will hold an Elementary School Showcase on Saturday, Jan. 6, from 10 a.m. to noon. All 4J schools will hold tours and other opportunities to visit during the month of January.

If you have any friends or family members who are considering school choice, please invite them to come learn more about our wonderful school at our school choice events in January!

Mirando hacia el futuro: elección de escuelas 2018 (‘School Choice 2018’)

Nuevo cronograma, las mismas grandes opciones

En el Distrito Escolar de Eugene 4J, nuestra política de elección de escuelas es que un alumno puede solicitar matricularse en cualquier escuela de 4J, siempre y cuando haya puestos disponibles. Las solicitudes de elección de escuelas son aceptadas en un orden determinado por medio de una lotería.

Una fecha límite anticipada: La fecha limite para que los residentes del distrito 4J sean incluidos en la lotería de elección de escuelas 2017–18 es el 31 de enero, más anticipadamente que en años previos. Las visitas a las escuelas serán programadas durante el mes de enero. Para participar en la lotería anual de elección de escuelas, los residentes de 4J deberán completar una solicitud durante el 1º de enero y hasta la media noche del 31 de enero. Los que residen fuera del distrito 4J deberán completar la solicitud durante el 1º de marzo y el 1º de abril.

Quién debe completar una solicitud: Todo alumno que desee matricularse en una escuela fuera de su vecindario deberá completar una solicitud. Esto incluye alumnos nuevos que tengan hermanos matriculados en una escuela de 4J, alumnos que se hayan cambiado de vecindario o de distrito y deseen quedarse en la misma escuela, alumnos de octavo grado que deseen entrar a una escuela preparatoria que no sea de su vecindario, y alumnos que no residen en el distrito que estén matriculados este año por medio de un traslado interdistrital de un año (one-year interdistrict transfer). La inscripción no es automática.

Quién no necesita completar una solicitud: Si el alumno ya está matriculado en una escuela de 4J por medio de un traslado de escuela dentro del distrito (in-district school choice transfer) y no ha salido del distrito, o si está matriculado por medio de un traslado abierto fuera del distrito de múltiples años (out-of-district multi-year open enrollment transfer), no necesitará solicitar de nuevo.

Vengan a ver nuestras escuelas: Si usted o algunas de sus amistades están interesados en explorar sus elecciones de escuelas, El distrito llevara a cabo una exhibición de escuelas primarias el sábado, 6 de enero, de 10 a.m. a 12:00 p.m. Todas las escuelas de 4J ofrecerán recorridos y otras oportunidades para visitas durante el mes de enero.

Si usted tiene amigos o familiares que esté considerando la elección de una escuela, por favor invíteles a aprender más sobre nuestra maravillosa escuela en el evento de elección de escuelas que se llevara a cabo en enero.

Ya viene el invierno: Decisiones y notificaciones para días de nieve

Planifique con tiempo, regístrese ahora para recibir textos con alertas de cierre de escuelas

Cuando hay mal tiempo en el invierno, las escuelas pueden cerrar o comenzar tarde y los autobuses pueden utilizar las rutas de nieve. Estas decisiones son hechas para el distrito entero y aplican a todas las escuelas de 4J.

Cómo se toma la decisión:

Normalmente, las decisiones sobre cambios del horario de clases por el clima inclemente se toman en la mañana antes del inicio de las clases, cuando se pueden evaluar las condiciones del clima. Creemos que servimos mejor a los alumnos y a las familias cuando las escuelas están abiertas. Nuestra prioridad y el motivo de cualquier cierre de escuelas es la seguridad de nuestros alumnos y personal.

Cómo saber si hay un cambio:

Si el distrito decide cambiar el horario de clases o las rutas de autobuses, esto será comunicado lo más pronto posible en varias maneras, siempre antes de las 6:30 a.m. Si no hay ningún cambio de horario o de rutas de autobuses, NO habrá ningún anuncio.

  • Regístrese para recibir alertas de mensajes de texto—mande al número 40404 el mensaje FOLLOW 4JWEATHER (y si recibe mensajes adicionales que no desee, responda SET DISCOVER OFF)
  • Revise la página web del distrito (www.4j.lane.edu)
  • Revise la página de Facebook del distrito (facebook.com/4Jschools)
  • Consulta las estaciones de noticias locales por radio, televisión o internet
  • Marca el número de teléfono de emergencia en español, 541-790-7738
  • ¿Qué significa el anuncio?

Cierre de escuela (“Schools Closed”): No hay clases para los alumnos, aunque pueda ser que algunos miembros del personal estén trabajando. El distrito decidirá antes del mediodía si se permitirán actividades extracurriculares o el uso de las instalaciones por miembros de la comunidad.

Retraso de dos horas (“Two-Hour Delay”): Las clases comenzarán dos horas más tarde y terminarán a la hora normal en un día escolar regular. Si normalmente hubiera sido un día de entrada tarde, el programa de entrada tarde será cancelado y el horario para la apertura retrasada en un día normal se seguirá. Los autobuses conducirán cautelosamente, ajustándose a las condiciones, así que el horario para recoger y dejar a los estudiantes puede retrasarse.

Rutas de nieve (“Snow Routes”): Algunas rutas de los autobuses escolares tienen rutas alternativas de nieve (“snow routes”) que pueden ser utilizadas cuando la nieve y el hielo crean condiciones peligrosas en elevaciones más altas y empinadas. Esto ayuda a minimizar el cierre de escuelas debido al clima inclemente. Cuando los autobuses utilicen estas rutas alternativas las ubicaciones de las paradas de autobuses serán diferentes tanto como el horario. Podrá encontrar más información en www.4j.lane.edu/transportation/snowroutes.

Opción de los padres (“Parent Choice”): Cuando la escuela este en sesión durante el clima invernal, se les urge a las familias considerar las condiciones de las carreteras donde viven, tomar su propia decisión basada en la seguridad, y notificar a la escuela si su estudiante no asistirá a la escuela. Las decisiones de los padres sobre la ausencia de sus estudiantes por razones de seguridad en el clima inclemente serán respetadas.

Podrá encontrar más información en inglés en el sitio web www.4j.lane.edu/weather.

Winter Is Coming: Snow Day Decisions and Notifications

Plan ahead, sign up now for school closure alert texts

When winter weather arrives, schools may be closed or delayed or buses may use snow routes. These decisions are made district wide and are the same for every 4J school.

How the decision is made:

Typically, weather-related school schedule decisions are made in the early morning, before school, when current weather conditions can be assessed. We believe students and families are best served when we are open. Our main concern and the reason for any school closure is the safety of our students and staff.

How to find out if there is a change:

If the district decides to make a change to the school schedule or bus routes, it is communicated as quickly as possible in several ways, all well before 6:30 a.m. If schools and buses are on their regular schedule, there will NOT be an announcement.

  • Sign up for text-message alerts — send a text to 40404 that says FOLLOW 4JWEATHER (if you receive extra messages you don’t want, reply SET DISCOVER OFF)
  • Like Eugene School District 4J on our Facebook page, facebook.com/4Jschools
  • Check the 4J website, www.4j.lane.edu
  • Tune in to local news media
  • What does the announcement mean?

School Closure: There is no school for students, although some staff will be at work. The district will make a decision by noon about whether any after-school student activities or community use of buildings may take place.

Two-Hour Delay: School will start two hours late and end at the normal dismissal time for a regular school day. If it would normally have been a late-start day, the late-start schedule will be canceled and the schedule for delayed opening on a normal day will be followed. Buses will drive cautiously, adjusting to conditions, so pickup and return may be delayed.

Snow Routes: Some school bus routes have alternate “snow routes” that may be used when snow and ice make road conditions hazardous at higher and steeper elevations. This helps limit the need for school closures in harsh weather. When school buses operate on these snow routes, some students will have a different bus stop location and time than on the regular route. More information is at www.4j.lane.edu/transportation/snowroutes.

Parent Choice: When school is in session during wintry weather, families are encouraged to consider the road conditions in their areas, make their own decisions based on safety, and notify the school if their student will be staying home. Parents’ decisions about student absences for hazardous weather safety reasons will be honored.
