Follow-Up Test Detects No Microcystins in Wilsonville, Sherwood Water Supply

posted Jun 4, 2018, 2:06 PM by Kristen Delaney   [ updated Jun 4, 2018, 2:07 PM ]

Dear parents, families and members of the community,

Below is text, and a link to the official press release from the cities of Sherwood and Wilsonville regarding the drinking water test results.


Updated June 4th, 2018:

Follow-Up Test Detects No Microcystins in Wilsonville, Sherwood Water Supply

SHERWOOD, OR — Samples of local water delivered to a Seattle-area laboratory for testing on Friday, June 1, revealed no detectable level of microcystins in the local water supply, the cities of Wilsonville and Sherwood announced today.

A ‘non-detect’ result was returned this morning for three samples – source water, finished water and distributed water – supplied by the City of Wilsonville.

As an additional measure to ensure the health of the water supply, Wilsonville is sending samples to two laboratories to analyze seven straight days (June 1-7) of water.

Additionally, the California lab handling the Willamette Water Treatment Plant’s EPA-guided testing under the Unregulated Contaminants Monitoring Rule (UCMR4) delivered a promising preliminary follow-up report on the sample that initially detected microcystins. The “Algal Low 9” test, which analyzes eight variants of microsystins and nodularin, returned non-detect for all nine variants this morning.

On Thursday, May 31, Wilsonville learned that a UCMR4 sample detected 0.34 µg/L, slightly over the EPA’s guideline value for microcystins—one of the four cyanotoxins of greatest concern in drinking water.

For more information on Wilsonville water, visit www.ci.wilsonville.or.us.  For general questions about water quality, people can visit the Oregon Health Authority’s website, call 2-1-1 for more information or call the City of Sherwood Public Works office at 503-625-5722.

Drinking Water Precaution

posted Jun 1, 2018, 10:24 AM by Kristen Delaney   [ updated Jun 1, 2018, 2:18 PM ]

Dear Parents and Families,

Late last night, we were alerted by the City of Sherwood of a potential positive test for cyanotoxin from our water provider, the City of Wilsonville. This is a preliminary test, and has not been confirmed, so there may be no issue at all. Nevertheless, out of an abundance of caution, the Sherwood School District has purchased bottled water, and is in the process of distributing the water to all seven of our schools  to provide to pre-k through first grade, those who are immunocompromised, the elderly and pregnant and nursing mothers.  We've been advised that children under 6 and those with compromised immune systems are at risk from cyanotoxin. Older children and adults are not at risk. Accommodations have been made in all schools with regard to food services and preparation of school lunches.

We will continue to keep our families updated with more information as it becomes available. Please continue to visit www.sherwoodoregon.gov/ for updates.

A última hora de la noche anterior, la Ciudad de Sherwood nos alertó de una posible prueba positiva de cianotoxina de nuestro proveedor de agua, la ciudad de Wilsonville. Esta es una prueba preliminar, y no ha sido confirmada, por lo que puede no haber ningún problema. Sin embargo, debido a una gran cantidad de precaución, el Distrito Escolar de Sherwood ha comprado agua embotellada, y está en el proceso de distribuir el agua a las siete escuelas para proporcionar desde preescolar hasta primer grado, aquellos que están inmunocomprometidos, los ancianos y madres embarazadas y lactantes. Se nos ha informado que los niños menores de 6 años y aquellos con un sistema inmune comprometido están en riesgo de cianotoxina. Los niños mayores y los adultos no están en riesgo. Se han realizado adaptaciones en todas las escuelas con respecto a los servicios de alimentos y la preparación de almuerzos escolares.

Continuaremos manteniendo a nuestras familias informadas de las actualizaciones mas recién a medida que esté disponible. Por favor, continúe visitando http://www.sherwoodoregon.gov/ para mas información.

Sherwood Education Foundation Grants Presentation

posted May 29, 2018, 4:41 PM by Kristen Delaney   [ updated May 29, 2018, 4:48 PM ]

The Sherwood Education Foundation (SEF) raises funds from the community through its annual Calling for Kids campaign, and donations from individuals and businesses.  SEF distributes funds through grants to individual teachers and also through funding programs that support the District’s Strategic Plan.  The Sherwood Education Foundation presented more than $60,000 in grants to teachers in order to fund innovative projects at all seven Sherwood schools. This is a significant increase over previous years, largely due to the success of the Sip ‘N Spell which raised over $50,000 in just one evening in its second year.




News from your Safety Committee

posted May 29, 2018, 4:21 PM by Kristen Delaney

Do you know what it means to “daisy chain” a power strip or surge protector?

When the safety committee conducts safety inspections in each building, we look for any daisy chained power strips. Daisy chaining is a term that refers to power strips and/or extension cords being plugged into other power strips and/or extension cords.

Daisy chaining usually occurs when there are not enough established outlets to meet electrical needs.

The Occupational Safety and Hazard Administration (OSHA) requires that all power strips and extension cords be plugged directly into a wall outlet that is permanently installed.

Take a look around your work space. If you see any daisy chaining, please contact the maintenance department, or your local safety committee member. We will take a look at your work space and help you come up with a more safe electrical solution.
