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.

PSO (Parent Support Organization) – Staff Appreciation

The Sherwood High School PSO would like to say a BIG thank you to the Sherwood community for all your generous support in raising funds to help us show our school staff how much they are appreciated for staff appreciation week!! We have almost 130 staff members including teachers, custodians, office admin, IAs, and much more!

With generous support from many families in the community we were able to raise almost $2500!! We were able to provide each staff member with a Redbox movie code and popcorn, a travel mug with the Bowmen logo, coffee gift cards and a Bowmen logo tote to hold all their swag! So amazing! THANK YOU!

School Photos in Yearbook – 5/7

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 ( ajack@sherwood.k12.or.us) with any questions. 

Broadway Bits Fundraiser Show 5/7

SHS Performing Arts is putting on our 9th annual Broadway Bits variety show! Tickets are $10 for our livestream show taking place Friday, May 7 at 7:00pm. Get your tickets now by going to www.bowmentheatre.com/bits-2021

SHS Cloud Campus Student Materials Pick Up

Materials pickup are Tuesdays and Thursdays, 8:00am-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.  

Nutrition Services

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.

Transportation

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 (dbear@sherwood.k12.or.us).

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 – bfarwell@sherwood.k12.or.us
