October Lifeskill Focus: Growth Mindset

Text Alert Opt-In Coming Next Week

Our district’s goal is to inform parents and guardians of safety alerts, school events, and general school information in a consistent and timely way.

Starting this fall, all schools in the Corvallis School District will use SchoolMessenger for parent/guardian outreach, emergency broadcasts, and other important communications.

Next week, parents and guardians will have the opportunity to OPT-IN to receive school safety messages and absence notifications via SMS (text). School websites and email news will continue to provide general school news and announcements.

Watch for a reminder email on September 30 about the OPT-IN notification that will be sent that day to all parent and guardian cell phone numbers.

Boundary Review Task Force Application Available October 1

Parents and guardians are invited to apply to become a member of the Boundary Review Task Force.

This committee will meet nearly weekly from early December until February 2020.

  • The task force will be made up of building principals and up to 20 parent/guardian representatives from all neighborhood boundary areas.

The task force assessment and analysis will:

  • Review, question and discuss one or more draft (“Springboard”) boundary adjustment scenarios prepared by district staff and consultants to identify implementation/policy issues, major flaws, unforeseen consequences and implications for the 2018 bond program.
  • Review and consider community input from open house events. Open house events will take place in January and February.
  • Come to a consensus as a Task Force on a preferred boundary adjustment scenario.

All meetings will be open to the public to observe. Written input from the public may be submitted to the task force. The task force will complete their work by April 2020.

Applications are available at the link below or a paper copy is available in all school offices.

Meal Accounts

The Corvallis School District is using Titan School Solutions this year.  You can check your child’s meal account balance, apply for or check the status of free/reduced status meals, and make payments to meal accounts.  Sign up at https://family.titank12.com/

If you need your child’s student ID number (the number that was used to register your child), please contact the office.

Over the Counter Medication

Just a reminder that any over the counter medication (including cough drops) needs to be brought to the office by an adult, in the original packaging and the appropriate paperwork completed before office staff can dispense any medication.

Bus Registration

If your child will be taking the bus to or from school it is important that you register them.  Initial registration or updates/changes can be made at the following link:  https://www.csd509j.net/departments/student-transportation/bus-registration/
