Good afternoon HRCSD Educators,
As we start our last week with students, I want to thank you for another great year in our school district. My own kids woke up this morning yelling, “Last Late Start!” I don’t know why not having “late starts” in the summertime is cause for celebration… but they are PUMPED!
We all know that maximizing each student’s academic and social progress is what we’re all about. Hopefully you’re already taking a moment to reflect upon, and celebrate, your students and the growth they’ve made over the course of this school year. Some have made miraculous growth with seemingly little effort, while others have worked overtime to achieve incremental gains - most lie somewhere in between. Regardless, I’m sure that you have made a positive difference in your student’s lives over the course of the school year.

6-28-16 - Water Quality Update
In light of events in other states and in certain Oregon communities regarding water quality issues, I wanted to contact you about water testing in our schools.
Under current law, our facilities are exempt from mandatory water testing. The laws are based on the fact that municipal water systems test the water before it is distributed to the community, including the schools. Regardless, in September 2014 we initiated water quality testing at Mid Valley, Parkdale and Wy'east Schools because of the age of the plumbing infrastructure at those schools, and because we were beginning to collect information to help us plan for our recently-approved capital bond. The 2014 lab results were all within normal limits - good news.
