We are so proud of your efforts during a very challenging quarter. You have been already working to learn with COVID-19 and then overcoming hurdles created by the Holiday Farm fire. You have continued to show us how much you value education. We want to remind you the end of the quarter is now December 3. As a district, we are offering middle and high school parents two options during the first and second quarters. You can choose to have your child receive a letter grade or opt for a pass no pass option. We believe that offering multiple options may alleviate some of the stress students and families face while navigating distance learning. Parents of middle and high school students should call the high school office 541-822-3313 or email hsoffice@mckenziesd.org and share which option youโ€™ve chosen for your student. The deadline to share your choice is Tuesday, December 1st. The district is working hard to find additional options for students to access staffed support for their Comprehensive Distance Learning classes. We hope to have some good news in the coming weeks. Your physical and mental health is our top priority, and we will continue to look for ways to make sure this school year remains a positive experience for you and your family.

Hi Eagles! Hereโ€™s a message from Mr. Tompkins and a good reminder of safe practices as we head into the two-week statewide freeze implemented by Governor Brown. The mandate states that indoor and outdoor social get-togethers are limited to six people, total, from no more than two households. Please do your part so we can get together again soon. https://youtu.be/JnYQkjl5Nc8

Hello McKenzie River Community School Families, After much discussion, the McKenzie School Board voted to add additional days to the school year and shift the calendar. The move is meant to maximize the learning time disrupted by fall wildfires. The Holiday Farm Fire devastated our community and caused students to miss valuable distance learning time. The School Board voted to add six school days to the year, all of the new days landing on Fridays. They also adjusted the quarters because of the additional days. The first quarter will end on December 3, the second quarter on February 11, and the third quarter on April 22. The last day of school will be June 17. Graduation will not be affected and will remain on June 12. Distance learning has been challenging for all of us. We thank you for your continued support and flexibility as we work to make sure your children are getting all of the necessary instruction they need to be successful this year. We have attached a picture of our new schedule so your family can keep track of the changes.

Hello McKenzie River Community School Families, We wanted to alert you to a likely change in our school calendar. The Holiday Farm Fire has devastated our community and thatโ€™s why the McKenzie School District Board of Directors will vote on a revised schedule tomorrow. Each proposed option will add back at least six instructional days and shift the end of the quarters accordingly. The first quarter will now end on December 3 instead of November 5. The second quarter would end February 11 instead of January 28. The third quarter would end on April 22 instead of April 8. The end of the school year is a significant difference between the proposals. One would maintain the current end of the year, June 17. The other would add another week to the end of the year and close the year on June 24. Graduation would not be affected and remains scheduled for June 12. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we try to navigate during COVID and the Holiday Farm Fire. The education of your students remains our top priority. The Board will hold a Special Meeting this Thursday at 5:30 pm. You can find the agenda here: www.mckenziesd.org/o/mckenzie-school-district/page/district-board-upcoming-agenda

Hello McKenzie Families, Well done last week kicking off the 2020-2021 school year! Although it looks much different that what we are used to, we did it! When staff went up river, it was great to see familiar faces and check in on the families we have had little to no contact with. It was also an opportunity to see first hand the state of the school and the community. It was a hard but rewarding day, thank you to all who were able to make it out. This is a friendly reminder that teaching staff will be at Guy Lee Elementary tomorrow, Tuesday, October 6, 2020 from 2-2:30 PM to meet with families that are currently in "town"(Eugene/Springfield/surrounding areas), on the down river side of the closure or that have not had a chance to meet with teaching staff yet. We look forward to seeing you there! #mckenziestrong

SENIOR SPOTLIGHT Cedric DeKlerkย  Favorite K-12 memory at McKenzie: My favorite memory from Mckenzie was being a part of the band. Accomplishments (academic, athletic, or extracurricular): -John Philip Sousa Award -Principal Clarinet Player of Eugene Youth Symphony -Solo Clarinet Player Music in May -Straight Aโ€™s my senior year. -Pacific Luthern Honor Band Plans for the Future: -Attend the University of Oregon. -Professional clarinet player -International soloist Message from Family: "From the day Cedric was born I knew he was a very special guy. Speaking the Dutch language with him for the first two years of his life was so much fun. To this day, Cedric still has the accent, tongue, and technique, necessary to pronounce those guttural Dutch Gโ€™s. As a musician, and as a father, I saw Cedric as a fun kid playing with a keyboard and other music toys growing into a young man with a passion for classical music, absorbing everything from the intricate scales, the tempo, and rhythm changes, to get to know the background of those composers, whoโ€™s talent and inspiration are capable to produce some of the most beautiful sonataโ€™s or etudes available. Cedric spends so much time in his room behind his computer on his clarinet until he gets it right. Hour after hour of practice will it take until he feels he is worthy of playing the piece for us and others. With the help of his music teacher(s), Cedric is on his way to go study under one of the world's leading clarinetists at the University of Oregon this fall. I have no doubt Cedric will climb to the highest level of what he would like to achieve, for his ambition reaches further and beyond what he currently is capable of. I canโ€™t wait until the day I see him perform on the grand stage and I will be so proud of him, as I am of him now. Congratulations Cedric!"

Dear McKenzie Community, We apologize for the number of messages but we recently discovered that our system was only reaching a few families and we donโ€™t want to miss anyone. We shared on Saturday that this past Thursday, Governor Brown ordered all Oregon schools to close March 16th through March 31st. Guidance states that these days are to be treated like inclement weather days. We are planning to resume school on Wednesday, April 1, 2020. At this time, we plan that this learning will occur on campus. We will keep you updated on any future changes to this guidance that may prompt us to implement a distance education model. We are providing breakfast and lunch to students and other children ages 2-18 years old for the 8 days they would have been in school. March 16, 17, 18, 19, 30 and 31, 2020. Meals will be delivered along bus routes at regular stops, please meet the bus at your regular stops. Buses will be operating on a 2-hour delay schedule for morning routes. If your normal pick up is at 6:35 am, meal drop off will be at 8:35 am. Not a regular rider? Put that in the comments on the survey and we will contact you with a drop off time. Please complete the survey as it will give us valuable information to assist in our planning and preparation: https://forms.gle/gH5bFqKH8UvA1mdx6 The safety and well-being of our students is our highest priority. During the closure we will be deep cleaning the buildings as a precaution. These are uncharted waters for all of us. Thank you all for being supportive of our students, each other, and our community during this time.

A message from Lane Educational Service District: Driver Education is an essential part of road safety. Unfortunately, driver education is no longer taught in Oregon high schools. We are trying to change this by offering teen classes (provided by private driving schools) in your district. These classes would take place after school, at the high school. Will you fill out this short survey to help us find out how much interest there is in your district? Follow the link to take the survey! https://lesd.link/Drivers_Ed

As many of you may know we had to evacuate campus today due to a bomb threat. During this evacuation all students and staff were safe and accounted for. Students and staff alike did a wonderful job of adhering to our evacuation procedures and protocol. Local law enforcement and partners have determined that the campus is safe and we plan to be in session tomorrow Tuesday December 18th. Naturally, there are a lot of conversations happening at home tonight with your students about today's events. The younger students may not know the specifics of the threat. Many of the older students however, may be aware of the nature of the threat. We will have a Care Room open tomorrow for student and staff use; a counselor will be available. Typically we would like to send communication home with students after an incident but due to limited access to buildings, we were unable to do so. Thank you for your patience, understanding and support. If you have any further questions feel free to contact the Elementary at (541)822-3315 or High School at (541)822-3313. We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow at our regular time.
