Congrats class of 2021! McKenzie families, We will honor our graduating class of 2021 on Saturday, June 12, 2021, at 11 a.m in the Old McKenzie High School Gym. We’re so proud to be celebrating the accomplishments of our students! Our school and community have faced many obstacles this year, from COVID to the Holiday Farm Fire. A celebration of our graduates and their accomplishments is well deserved. Upper McKenzie Rural Fire Protection District Chief Rainbow Plews will act as the keynote speaker. Chief Rainbow is credited with saving lives and homes during the Holiday Farm Fire. The McKenzie School Class of 2021 chose the chief to provide their inspirational graduation speech. We will share virtual messages from U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley, U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden and Rep. Peter Defazio with graduates and attendees. The Hope Project, a local nonprofit, will also announce a special surprise for each graduate. With Lane County moving to lower risk this week, gym capacity has been expanded to allow seating of up to 405 people. Masks will still be required for all attendees. Go Eagles!, Lane Tompkins Superintendent McKenzie School District

Teacher Appreciation Week
In case you missed it, our District School Board voted to waive construction excise tax (CET) payments on residential and commercial building construction, replacing the buildings destroyed by the fire and future natural disasters. The waiver applies to the property owner during the emergency event and their family members who may have taken ownership. We will be working with Lane County to establish the best way to provide the funds to those who have already paid their CET on their rebuild. We know it's such a hard time for our community and our board wanted to do the right thing for our fellow community members as we look to the future.

We are sad to announce that Pam Sullivan will be retiring at the end of the school year. Please help us congratulate her! Pam has been the glue that has held our middle and high school together. Over the years, she has performed her job with calm professionalism and she rose to the challenge on all occasions. Pam says she had the perfect job, the best kids, the best staff, and was always treated with respect by everyone at McKenzie! She goes on to say her 25 years at McKenzie were a blessing and privilege! Congratulations on your retirement, Pam. You will be missed.
