Dear Bowmen Community,
Thank you for an amazing week! It was just so absolutely amazing to experience this new beginning.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend/week!
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Due to the shift to the High Risk Category for COVID for Washington County, tonight’s Carpool Cinema is canceled. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Attendance Reporting Updates
As we start Quarter Four, please note the following changes in our Attendance Procedures:
Parents are NOT allowed in the building at this time so for appointment pick ups/early releases please call in advance to report to the attendance line.
If a student is absent from class (either in-person or in-zoom), please notify Shari Ramp in the Attendance Office directly. The number for the Attendance Line is (503) 825-6010.
Daily Schedule-Beginning Monday April 26th
- Students are assigned to cohorts based on last name (Cohort 1 is A-K and Cohort 2 is L-Z)
- There is not flexibility to change cohorts; we will accommodate families in the same household and ensure that they are in the same cohort
Course Selection (previously called Forecasting)
This week in homeroom, students did a transcript review lesson and received information on how to complete their course selections for the next school year. The course selection window for grades 9-11 is open from April 23 to May 3.
If students have questions for their counselors about course selection, they can email their counselor or they can meet with a counselor during lunch. Counselors will be out at both lunches and will have a virtual zoom room available for students who are in the Cloud Campus to be able to ask questions. It is okay to ask any counselor your questions on course selection since we are all knowledgeable on the process and course options. Below are the links to our virtual zoom room that will be open during lunches.
SHS Cloud Campus Student Materials Pick Up
Materials pickup are Tuesdays and Thursdays, 8am-3:30pm. Please note that parents are NOT allowed in the building and to have your student schedules ready at the front doors when you come for pick up. Thank you.
School Photos in Yearbook
Yearbook is excited to announce that we will be extending our deadlines for the inclusion of student’s school photos.
Students may still submit their own photo via the yearbook website if they prefer.
This is a change from previous announcements; we appreciate your patience and understanding.
The new deadline for school photos to be submitted to the yearbook is Friday, May 7, 2021.
Please contact adviser Amy Jack with any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
The SHS Counseling Team
Hello SHS students and parents. We are excited to have you back in the building.
For students that wish to meet with their counselor please email your counselor directly. We will schedule a phone call, zoom call, or in person meeting depending on what is requested and/or needed.
For Cloud Campus students who are in crisis during school hours, please call our counseling secretary at 503-825-6020 and you will be transferred to an available counselor.
Students in crisis during non school hours, please call the Washington County Crisis Line at 503-291-9111 (available 24/7/365).
Again, welcome back or SHS. Please let us know if you have any questions and/or if we can help in any way.

Decision Week 2021
Attention all Seniors!
This year, May 3rd – May 7th is Decision Week! We want to celebrate every single pathway that our seniors are choosing after high school.
If you’re attending a four year college, two year college, starting a trades program, joining the workforce, joining the military, etc., we want to hear about it!
Please use this form to submit a photo of yourself showing off what your plans for next year are. We have included some example pictures in this form. These photos will be shared with the rest of the high school so everybody can see the great things you have all accomplished.
Please turn these in by April 22nd, 5:00pm. Feel free to direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are so proud of you all!
Nutrition services would like everyone to know that we are providing all of our students meals at no cost. During your homeroom class can you please announce that at every lunch period, meals will be available to all students and that at the end of the school day, multi-day meals for when students are not in the building can be picked up in the Commons or outside the front entrance. Students can have both meals during lunch periods and meals to take home. All meals are at no cost.
Information about bus routes and the transportation request form can be found HERE. Questions can be directed to the transportation department at 503-825-5900 or
Riding Buses with Friends
In order to maintain our COVID-19 capacity limits and tend to contact tracing on buses, our Transportation Dept. will not have the ability at this time to allow extra bus riders to travel home with their friends after school. Previously, parents/guardians could send a note with their student requesting transportation to a friend’s house on a one-time basis. However, adjustments to transportation plans for this year have put most of our bus routes at full capacity with regular bus riders. This means we cannot guarantee space for additional students not already on a route list for the remainder of this school year. We apologize for any inconvenience, and will continue to review this process as guidance changes in the future.
A message from Bookkeeper, Debi Bear
Student fees are tricky to pay during these times. You can either pay online through your parentvue account (unfortunately only works through a browser not the app) or by dropping a check off made payable to Sherwood High School at the front office. Please check your student’s balance online to be sure your check is made out for the correct amount and that your student’s name and what fees you are paying are written on the subject line. If your student shows a refund/credit please contact me. email@example.com Thank you.
Jostens Cap and Gown Graduation Orders-Seniors-If you are planning on participating in the graduation ceremony this year, you are required to wear a Sherwood High School approved cap and gown. The order deadline has passed, but Josten’s is still accepting orders. Please call them asap to order your cap and gown. You can call toll-free to 1-800-JOSTENS (567-8367).
Parents of AP students
We have decided on our calendar of exams. This calendar was decided based on student input, teacher input, AP requirements, and additional graduation requirements. We have the space available for safe, in person exams – following all Oregon COVID protocols. Those are still changing so we cannot give you specific information on the location just yet.
Every exam (except Spanish) has a digital, at home option – this is called the 3rd administration. Any student not comfortable with an in person exam can opt for the 3rd administration. I need to be contacted directly if that is their choice. Also, any student who chooses Cloud Campus also has the option to take the exam in person if they would like. I will be sending out a bulk email to parents and students with more detailed information.
Please contact me if you have any questions – firstname.lastname@example.org

Free Viewing of “Jane Austen Completely Zoomed”
Last month our amazing thespians from SHS created a wonderful online version of “Jane Austen Completely Zoomed”. Viewing for this production is FREE and available on Youtube for the next 2 months. Here is the link. https://youtu.be/Ty6IHU-umC0
We received a note from the script’s author congratulating us on our performance and saying ” Everything about this was JUST AS IT SHOULD BE–from the costumes, to the way the cards were handled, to the technical aspects, to the brilliance of the acting, to the comic timing. Even the facial expressions and reactions were spot on.” The show runs just under an hour and is certain to be a bright spot on any day! Congratulations to our amazing students for another fantastic Bowmen Theatre production!!
