Our Transportation Department has been working today to develop a plan for safe transport of students due to areas with blocked roads caused by downed trees. Except as noted below, routes will operate as normal. Please be advised that due to the conditions of the roads and drivers using an abundance of caution, routes may take longer than normal to complete.
If bus drivers see an unsafe condition at any bus stop, student(s) will not be dropped off at that location, and affected families will be contacted to make alternative arrangements.
The following buses will be on snow routes this afternoon: Route #4.
Please also note that Edy Road is inaccessible between 99W and Copper Terrace.
We will communicate updates via email and FlashAlert as needed.
School is still in session and we plan to dismiss at the regular time.
Edy Ridge has been without power today due to the storm. All students are safe. The school is open. PGE has informed the school that the outage could last a minimum of 4 hours. While Edy Ridge is well lit by natural light in most areas, staff are tending to needs for extra lighting where needed, and will provide lunch.
Edy Ridge phones are currently not operational; if you have an emergency and need to reach Edy staff urgently, please use their emergency line: 503-925-8450.
We will continue to communicate through District email and FlashAlert.
Please join us at the second Bond Community Input Session and participate in helping to shape the vision for the new Sherwood High School.
During the Bond Community Input Session on March 9th, architects from DOWA presented the guiding principles that are shaping the development of the new high school. On April 3, we invite you to join us as the work of the Design Team continues and we move from the concept plan to schematic design phase. To learn more about this event and other news related to bond projects, please visit the District's 2016 Capital Bond web site.
Friday, March 17, Superintendent Dr. Heather Cordie released a letter to Sherwood staff, families and community members, asking for support in advocating for sufficient funding for K-12 education in Oregon. The link below includes the letter and other documents related to the District's efforts to urge support from Oregon Legislature.
In her release to staff and Key Communicator subscribers, Supt. Cordie asked, "Please become familiar with this important issue by reviewing my letter and the accompanying materials. I hope you will join us in reaching out to our legislators to request action to provide the funding we need to continue providing the services and programs our Sherwood students need!"

We quickly engaged in the steps needed to begin work on the greatest of the bond projects - the construction of a new high school. First, the Sherwood School District selected an Owner’s Representative and Lead Architect to guide the efforts of the high school project: Cornerstone Management Group, Inc., and Dull Olson Weekes -IBI Architects Group, Inc. (DOWA), respectively.
In January, the District conducted a selection process to identify stakeholders to be part of the New SHS Design Committee. Participants, including classified and certified staff, parents, students, Board members, and administrators, have been meeting regularly to provide input into the design phase of the high school, guided by the facilitation of the DOWA architect team.
Now, with the foundation of the visioning developed by the Design Committee, we want to engage the whole of our community in the design process….and we’re looking for your voice! It is very important to the leadership and Board of Directors for Sherwood School District that the new Sherwood High School reflect the perspectives and input of all of our stakeholders and community members. Together, we will develop a vision for the future that we are building for Sherwood students.
During the Bond Community Input Session on March 9th, the architects from DOWA will present the guiding principles that will shape the development of the new high school. Attendees will have the opportunity to review some of the preliminary designs for the high school site, and will participate in a “virtual tour” to view and provide feedback on the physical characteristics of space that could be incorporated into the new school.
We expect to host another Community Input Session this spring. Stay tuned for more on that event - and please continue to visit our web site for the latest news about the bond projects.
Routes 3 and 4 on snow routes in morning only.
