COVID-19 Mask/Face-Covering Guidance and Information
This week the CDC and OHA have revised their mask guidance for vaccinated individuals. However, the Oregon Department of Education has announced that these changes will not be implemented in schools for the remainder of this school year. The mask protocols in Sherwood School District remain the same: All individuals (students/staff/spectators) must wear masks while on campus at SSD facilities (indoors and outdoors), except for individuals competing or practicing in non-contact sports (which include track, cross country, tennis, golf, sideline cheer/dance).

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.
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 Balance Refunds
Starting May 17, Nutrition Services will be offering refunds of students’ meal accounts. If your balance is under $4.99 then cash will be refunded. If the amount is over $5.00 then a check will be issued. Please come to the cafeteria during any lunch period.
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.
