Transportation for 2020-2021

posted Jun 22, 2020, 1:53 PM by Michelle Wunnicke

With the new boundaries, Middleton is almost a walking school with only one bus to cover the far side of the Woodhaven neighborhood (over by the new SMS). There will not be room on the bus for courtesy riders (students that live within the walk zone). This will be a significant change for some families that were utilizing stops even though they live within the walk zone. Attached is a copy of the Middleton Walk Zone for the 2020-21 school year. Please direct any questions to Greg Stamm - gstamm@sherwood.k12.or.us. Thank you.

Student Placement Input

posted May 1, 2020, 12:46 PM by Jon Wollmuth   [ updated May 1, 2020, 12:56 PM ]

The Middleton staff realizes that parents provide valuable information regarding their child’s placement. While we do not take requests for specific teachers, parent input will be carefully considered in the formation of classes for the 2020-2021 school year. Our class placement process is a collaborative one and our Placement Team takes into account a number of factors when forming classes: boy/girl ratio, personalities, academic levels, learning styles, learning needs, and student compatibility. We look at each student as an individual and as a member of a diverse class. This information will be given careful consideration.  Every effort will be made to provide the most appropriate educational setting for your child and to establish well-balanced classrooms.


This is not a teacher request form. Any form turned in with a specific teacher’s name request will not be considered. 


If you are interested in providing placement input, please complete the Parent Input Survey no later than 5 pm on Wednesday, May 13, 2020.

  • Champions will provide a backup source of childcare during the closure.  This program is open to all Sherwood Students age 5-12, whose families have immediate care needs (healthcare workers, first responders, no back-up care available). The schedule for Champions will start on Tuesday, March 17, to allow for facility sanitation and registration processing on Monday, March 16.

  • Families who participate in our Weekly Backpack Program can pick up their backpacks at the SHARE Center on Friday, March 20, in order to have them over Spring Break. (see hours above).

 

We have received questions from parents/guardians/community members about where to direct donations of food or funds to assist students and families in need.  We encourage those individuals who want to contribute in this way, to contact our SHARE Center at 503-825-5480. The SHARE Center can accept gift cards (Walmart, Safeway, Target, etc.), new and gently used clothing, school supplies, diapers/wipes, basic necessities and monetary donations. 


The events and circumstances we all are experiencing are unprecedented. As we continue to maneuver through the ever-changing landscape, please remember to take care of yourselves and look out for others.  Many emotions and reactions arise in response to the current reality — please be kind and thoughtful, and extend grace and compassion to others.


COVID-19 School Information

posted Mar 12, 2020, 4:21 PM by Jon Wollmuth   [ updated Mar 12, 2020, 4:23 PM ]

Dear Parents and Families, 

By now I assume that you have seen the district email regarding COVID-19 and our new changes in effect starting tomorrow, Friday, March 13th. I just wanted to take a minute to highlight the key items and speak to some things that will look different tomorrow morning when your students arrive to school. 

Please note that we will no longer be allowing parents or volunteers to enter the building. When your child arrives to school tomorrow, and all school days going forward, they will be greeted at the door by staff members and will be allowed to walk straight to their classroom to meet their teacher. We will ask that all parents and adults remain outside, with the exception of mid-day drop offs and pick-ups. 

End of the day pick up will remain as it currently is with students meeting families outside of the building in the car or walker lines.

In addition to these main changes, a few other points to highlight. With the exception of our Champions after school care, all before and after school events, clubs, classes and activities are canceled through April 8th. We are also postponing our staff appreciation activities and events until a later date. 

In regards to attendance, any medical or illness related absence is excused. Our district is still legally required to follow the attendance policy set in place by the Oregon Department of Education. This policy states that once a student misses more than ten consecutive school days (weekends or non-school days do not count) for any reason they must be dropped from our school enrollment and the family becomes legally responsible for ensuring the child's education continues.

This happens often throughout the year for a variety of reasons, and please know that if for any reason your child misses more than ten school days in a row and becomes unenrolled, we still keep all of their enrollment paperwork in place and at any time when you feel it is appropriate for them to return, we can simply re-enroll them and place them back in their current class. We do ask that parents give us one school day to process that request, but other than that the process is very simple. 

I don't know where things will take us in the next several weeks, but I do know that our entire district staff is working diligently to maintain a clean building and to support students with regular handwashing. We continue to follow the guidance of the Oregon Health Authority and I am hopeful that all will be well at Middleton. We will continue to provide a safe and supportive environment for our students to learn and grow each day. 

We will continue to keep parents and families updated in the weeks to come, and as always you are welcome to reach out if you have concerns in the future. 

Thanks for your support,

Jon
