Instructional Model Change Opportunity
If you would like to change your instructional model for the remainder of the school year (move from In-Person Hybrid to Cloud Campus or move from Cloud Campus to In-Person Hybrid), please email Gwen Renard at email@example.com by Wednesday, May 5th at 3:00pm.
We will make the necessary changes and students will be able to begin in their newly selected instructional model on Thursday, May 6th. If you have any questions about this, please contact Gwen.
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. 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)
The course selection window for our current 9th-11th grade students closes on Monday, May 3rd at midnight.
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.

Sherwood High School offers meals during all lunch periods at no cost to students. Additionally, we offer meals to take home at the end of the school day. Due to our schools having multiple lunch times, locations for dining, requirements to maintain a six foot distance and guidance prohibiting self-service buffet-style meals, all meals will be sack lunch style until the end of this school year. These mitigation measures will help to keep nutrition services staff safe while they provide meal service to our students.
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.
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. Families can pay online through their 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 Debi Bear (email@example.com).
AP Exams – 5/4 – 5/25
AP exams begin on Tuesday May 4th. If your student has an exam next week, they (and parents) should have received an email with details. All in person exams will be held at the District Office – the old Hopkins Elementary Building. I will be sending out details for later exams and all digital exams after this initial week.
Please contact me if you have any questions – firstname.lastname@example.org
