both the school district and the Paisley City Council met with
representatives from the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT)
this past week. Our main topic of conversation was regarding the
school zone signage and how to slow traffic as it approaches Paisley
from both the north and south. We also discussed the bus stop
situation at Summer Lake as well. We will continue our discussions
with them over the next few months.
season is winding down with just a couple of home games left on the
schedule. Our athletes and coaches appreciate the support this
community gives them at each and every game. A big thanks to all of
the volunteers who run the concession stand at our games. Track
season will be starting before we know it.
DCI Construction in
Klamath Falls was awarded the contact to do the work needed to
complete the seismic upgrades in our main school building. The
planning process will begin soon with actual retrofit projects to
begin immediately after graduation with a completion date of late
September 2017. We will keep you updated as the project moves
As you know, we
canceled three days of school this year because of weather
conditions. This has been a very unusual year in regards to weather.
Because of those cancellations we must take a look at our
instructional hours that were missed and reschedule days if we fall
below a certain threshold. I believe we still fall above that state
required instructional hours in each of our grade levels. We should
not have to add any school days at this point. You will be notified
of any changes.
Please come by the
office or give me a call if you have any questions or concerns. I
always look forward to meeting with any of you. Thanks to all of
you for your continued support of our students and staff.
