Do you have questions about school pictures?
Was your child absent on the original picture day?

Our school is having picture retake day on Thursday, November 17th, 2016.  This day is for students that did not have an opportunity to be photographed on the original picture day, were absent or were not satisfied with their previous photo. There is no extra charge for having a picture taken again on this day.  Students will need to have another Portrait package order form at the time of their picture retake.  Order forms will be available in the school office the week prior to retake day.  If you have any questions, feel free to give the office a call or you can contact Dorian Studio at #1-800-826-3535.

Each year, students in grades three through eight and grade 11 take state tests in English language arts and math.  Students in grades five, eight and in high school also take a state science test.  The tests measure students' knowledge of state standards and give the state information about how schools are performing.  Information from the Oregon Department of Education regarding parents' right to opt students out of some state testing is available online.
