Principal's Update- 4/19/20

posted Apr 19, 2020, 8:53 PM by Lori Cowan-Lane

Dear Bowmen Families,


I hope this finds you all well.  Thank you to everyone who came out on Friday for the parade- it made my heart so happy to see you all!  


Now that we are starting to get into the rhythm of Distance Learning, I wanted to let you know that we are going to move back to our once per week communication.  Of course, if something comes up that I need you to know, I will obviously get that out to you, but as of now, please know that after today, we will move back to a weekly, Friday communication.  


As always, please let me know if you have any questions or need anything.  Have a great week!



Mrs. Baran



Principal’s Message: 4/19/2020


Fee Refunds

Beginning on Monday, we will begin refunding activity/athletics/course/nutrition services fees and balances to seniors.  Current 9th-11th grade families will receive a form asking how they would like the school/district to process fees and balances.  The form should be ready to go out to families by the end of the week. Please let me know if you have any questions.


Parent Access to Canvas  

Please use the link to access Canvas.  If you have any questions, please contact either Sarah Grider or Tracie Harbick ( or  


Locker Pick-Up/Materials Pick-up

We are in the process of cleaning out lockers and bagging up contents for retrieval by students/families.  We will send out details about the pick-up plan early this week.  


Grading/Reporting Updates

Last Thursday, the Oregon Department of Education released additional guidance about how we must grade/report for Distance Learning courses for our 9th-11th grade students.  Moving forward, instead of the A/NG that we originally planned to use for grades this trimester, we will now align to the state expectations and use Pass/No Grade (P/NG) as the marks on our transcripts.  All high school courses will be graded/reported using this scale including AP and Dual Credit courses.  


Facilities Closed

As a reminder, all Sherwood School District buildings and properties are closed for the duration of our school closure.  This includes playgrounds, basketball courts, tennis courts, etc. We encourage compliance with statewide social distancing guidelines, and ask that students, families, and community members not to access closed facilities for their own safety and the safety of others.
