Interested in Hosting an Exchange Student?

Hello Sherwood community, I am a local coordinator in the Portland area for exchange students. I’m looking for a host family to host a student at Sherwood HS for the coming school year.

Have you ever thought about hosting an international student? Host families come in all shapes and sizes (you don’t need to have a child in high school!), and provide room, board (3 meals/day, reasonable snacks), and a family environment. Students are insured and have their own spending money for any personal expenses outside the home. There is also a strong backup support network — we’re here to answer questions and help you and your student! Students participate in a thorough preparation program before and after arrival.

A former exchange student who attended one of the schools in our area said it nicely to me a few days ago: “As an exchange student to the school over 20 years ago, I’m grateful to this day to the families, support people, and teachers that gave me a life-changing experience and opportunity to make life-long friendships.”

Contact laura.kosloff@efexchangeyear.org, 503-913-0133 for more information.

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

Material pickups 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.  


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  5/24-6/11

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.
