Update Your Information in ParentVUE

The beginning of a new year is a great time to update your student’s contact information and emergency contacts in ParentVUE. Current student records and contacts are crucial in the event of emergencies, and during this year of distance learning. Please update your student information in the ParentVUE app or click here!

Families with Freshmen students, we need you to review your information as well! Records sent from the middle school could be older than you realize. 

Health Survey 2020-2021

Our school is participating in the Student Health Survey (SHS), a survey sponsored by the Oregon Health Authority, Public Health Division, and the Oregon Department of Education. The survey will gather information about health risk behaviors of students in grade 11. The survey will be conducted online and is anonymous. It includes questions about:

Student health and safety
Student mental and behavioral health
School climate and culture 

Survey procedures have been designed to protect your child’s privacy and allow for anonymous participation. If your child is not comfortable answering a question, they can leave it blank. While we encourage all students to participate, the decision to participate is voluntary. You may opt to send a refusal for your child’s participation. Alternatively, your child will have the opportunity to refuse at the time of the survey.

Please return this form by email to jmoore@sherwood.k12.or.us before February 22, 2021. You need only return this form if you do not wish your child to participate.

Bilingual teaching Recruitment – 2/9 & 2/10

Flyer in English and Spanish with more information here:

In collaboration with our partners, we will be providing advisors to help attendees with each step along their educational journey: GED, English language acquisition, associate’s degree, foreign transcript evaluation, employment as a non-licensed staff member, Bachelors, and Masters. We aim for each attendee to leave the meeting with a clear pathway to teacher licensure.
