We encourage parents and community members to volunteer in our schools and believe that having people from the community in our buildings can enrich the day to day experience of our students. Volunteers must complete and sign a volunteer background check application each year. The background check takes 5 - 7 business days to complete. In addition to the background check, every volunteer and contractor who will be on district property when students are present will have a name check through the Oregon Department of Education Sexual Misconduct database. Once a background check has been received. The volunteer’s name is added to an approved volunteer list that each employee in the district can access. Folks are not able to volunteer until their names are added to the list. Note: if you are simply dropping off something for your student or meeting with a staff member, you do not need to complete a background check. Here is the link to the volunteer background check packet . Completed forms can be turned into your school or dropped off with Michelle Smith at the district office.
The district recognizes its responsibility to provide a free, appropriate public education to students with disabilities under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Accordingly, no otherwise qualified individual with disabilities shall, solely by reason of his/her disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any district program or activity or those provided by the district through contractual or other arrangements. District aids, benefits and services will afford qualified students with disabilities equal opportunity to obtain the same result, to gain the same benefit or to reach the same level of achievement as students without disabilities in the most integrated setting appropriate to the student’s needs. Programs and activities shall be accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities as prescribed by law. The district policy that addresses 504’s and outlines the district’s requirements to ensure compliance with the provisions it contains, is policy JBAA.

We have posted the 2023-2024 Snow Route bus schedule. It can be found directly at this link: https://www.fernridge.k12.or.us/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/SNOW-ROUTES-23-24.pdf As a reminder, when snow routes are used in the morning, buses MUST drop off at the same location as pick-up regardless of road conditions. In the event of a school closure due to weather, the District's goal is to communicate that prior to 6:30 AM. ParentSquare will be the primary tool for this communication, although it will also be on the website, social media, FlashAlert and local news media.
Thank you to all the volunteers this Fall at EHS Athletics. It takes a lot of work and planning by FRSD staff to put on larger home athletic events like home football games. However, without volunteers, it would be impossible! Thank you to the many volunteers this Fall, including announcers, clock runners, chain gangs, and the MANY folks who volunteered in the Snack bar. It is much appreciated by all the staff, students, and all the visitors that attend. Go Falcons!
