Dear District 6 Families- Today's tragic situation in Texas causes us great pause as a nation and community. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those impacted by the events. The safety and wellbeing of your children is a priority in our schools. The incident in Texas today may create additional anxiety for parents and students. We have requested additional police presence and support from the Central Point Police and the Jackson County Sheriff. Tomorrow, there will be an increased law enforcement presence in and around our school campuses. Additionally, we will coordinate with our school counselors and psychologists. If needed, they will be able to provide support for students as they process the events or have questions. Thank you for supporting our efforts regarding school safety. We know the procedures that are in place can seem inconvenient at times for parents. We will continue to train our staff and maintain strong, proactive partnerships with our law enforcement agencies to keep safety a priority in our schools. Sincerely, Walt Davenport Superintendent

This work is made possible thanks to our community’s passage of the 2019 school bond, a 2.5-million-dollar state seismic grant, and significant funding from the student investment account. We have much in store to improve our beloved gym, including the installation of heating and air conditioning, structural reinforcement for earthquake preparedness, locker room/restroom remodeling, and much needed improvements to mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. As many of you know, the Crater High School gym hosts a variety of groups and is a hub for many activities throughout the entire year. Unfortunately, a project of this magnitude requires the District to temporarily close the gym facilities. Closure is set to begin this May and last through November 2022. Our project managers have carefully selected this period as the least intrusive and most cost-effective time frame to complete this phase of the bond project. If you have a student athlete involved in a program affected by the gym closure, your student’s coaching team will reach out to your family with details on alternate locations and arrangements. The district will work with our community partners to ensure other athletic and extra-curricular programs are supported and have a temporary home to serve students during this closure. The District recognizes the importance of having gym space available for our community groups, athletes and students. In an effort to maximize our remaining gym space during construction, the District is seeking to make improvements to the 2 Scenic Middle School gyms. This will allow for more flexible practice space and official competitions. These improvements include installation of adjustable basketball hoops and upgraded volleyball net/pole systems. The potential upgrades will help accommodate a range of athletes K-12 not only during this closure but for years to come. The District will also utilize our gym at Central Point Elementary and our new gym at Jewett Elementary to help mitigate the impact of the construction schedule. Without the support of our community and the desire to provide the best possible facilities for our kids, none of this would be possible. We hope the progress we have already made within the 2019 school bond program shows our continued commitment to fulfilling the goals that were set by the taxpayers.
