“Happy Friday!” – updated August 21, 2019

Welcome back! Mr. Cooper and I finished our first complete year and are anxiously awaiting the students’ arrival! Teachers will begin on Monday and will be prepping their classes and curriculum for the first day of school. I hope everyone had a safe, fun, and relaxing summer!

 

Every week I put out what I call a “Happy Friday!” post to parents and community. In the “Happy Friday!” I talk about good things and new stuff as well as reminders and old stuff. In addition I have an ‘upcoming events’ outline to help ensure parents are in the know and have an idea of what’s coming up. I can also use this as a way for Boosters, Senior Parents, and Counseling Center to get information out. I try and BOLD information to make it easier for parents to scan. 

 

Good Things/New Stuff

 

  • If you have not yet registered for school. Please go here to register online. If you do not have your PIV number, please contact the main office 541-563-3243. The main office has very sporadic hours until school starts as there are mandatory meetings and trainings for the office staff. Please call to make an appointment.  

 

  • High School Fall Sports are well on their way. Middle School Fall Sports will start at 3:30PM on Tuesday September 3rd. 
    • A few reminders for parents and athletes: 
      • All athletes (middle school and high school) must complete the following before they can practice: 
      • Online Forms for parents and students – click here
      • Updated sports physical – click here 
        • *School Based Health Center and Chiropractic 101 are able to provide physicals
      • The sports fee must be paid prior to the athlete’s first contest: $100 for MS and $125 for HS per sport. You can pay online here

  • School starts for 7th and 9th graders as well as any new students in the 8th, & 10th-12th grade on Tuesday September 3rd! The leadership students and teachers have put together a fun filled day to welcome New Students, 7th Graders, and Freshmen to Waldport Middle and Waldport High School. 

 

  • School will be in session for everyone on Wednesday September 4th. This is an early release day school will be letting out at 2:21PM for middle school and high school every Wednesday. 

 

  • Open House will be on Wednesday September 18th from 7-8PM. We will be having a FAFSA info night for senior parents.

 

  • Students will receive their class schedule on the first day of school. If your child would like to request a schedule change, they must fill out a schedule change form and have their teachers sign to drop or add a class. We will take all requests into consideration, but we might not be able to accomodate all of them. Students have until Friday September 6th to request a schedule change. After Friday, requests will not be considered. Teachers, however, will be able to make schedule change requests until Friday September 13th if a student is placed in the wrong level of course. After September 13th only administrative approval will be able to change a course. 

 

  • Waldport Middle and High School received a grant to bring Challenge Day to all 7th-12th grade students and staff. In order to make this event happen, we are going to need several volunteers. Each day we need 25 adults total. The dates are December 2, 3, and 4th. If you are willing to participant and have a cleared background check, please let me know ASAP amy.skirvin@lincoln.k12.or.us You can contact the main office to fill out the paperwork to become a volunteer.
