Edgewood Driveway Closed

Welcome back Edgewood families. This morning’s commute for sure will be difficult for some and I encourage you to leave with plenty of time to spare. Our drop-off driveway is still heavy with packed snow and ice so we are closing it to through traffic. It is important that you drive and drop this morning without parking or driving down in our drop-off loop. Parked cars will make it even more difficult for any cars that have failed traction. I hope all of our families will make good decisions based on your location, whether to travel into school today. We look forward to having the students back and we are ready to begin the 2017 year together.

Schools Open, Buses on Snow Routes (Friday, Jan. 6, 2017)

open-sign-528Eugene School District schools are back in session on their regular schedules, but school buses will use snow routes today (Fri., Jan. 6). Please travel with caution, and please be patient with buses that are also traveling cautiously and may run behind schedule.

Some school bus routes in higher elevations and hilly areas have special routes they use in hazardous weather. Copies of snow route information were sent home this fall to families whose students ride those particular buses. Most school bus routes have no need for snow routes, and operate normally, even during winter weather.

On any day when inclement weather is a concern and school is in session, families and staff 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. Staff members have various leave provisions they can use when they believe they are unable to get to work safely.

OSU Extension Saturday classes

lay_hdr_tagOSU Extension is having a free winter workshop series for youth aged 9 – 18. This will take place bi-monthly on Saturdays from Jan. – March. The workshops will cover topics including baking, gardening, food preservation, and fine arts, utilizing different professionals from throughout our county. It’s completely free, and youth do not need to be 4-H members to participate, but each workshop is capped at 20 youth.

OSU Extension will also have a Jr. Master Naturalist program, in which experts teach youth ages 9 – 14 about natural resources through science experiments, and fieldtrips to a variety of local public lands. This was previously only opened to homeschool youth, but we are expanding it to youth from all educational backgrounds. This program costs $20 for the year and includes a 4-H membership, but we offer full scholarships for all youth in need.
