Laura Baker wins National Athletic Trainer Award!

Dear Sheldon Family and Friends,

Please join me in congratulating Laura Baker who was just awarded The National Athletic Training Association (NATA) and Gatorade team Award. This prestigious and very hard to get award recognizes “Outstanding Contributions to the Athletic Training Profession in the Secondary School Setting”. The work Laura has done, especially spearheading concussion management in the district, set her apart from other nominees and has propelled her to national recognition.
Laura is an awesome Athletic Trainer and it is about time that more people knew about the wonderful work that she does.
Thank you for supporting your athletic trainer and for letting Laura know how much we appreciate her.

Best regards,

Dr. Bob

Class of 2017 Countdown!

Hello 2017 Graduates and Families-

It is not too early to start planning for your graduation and here are some things to remember along the way:

  1. Sheldon High School’s Commencement Ceremony will begin at 7:00 PM on Friday, June 9, 2016 at The Hult Center for Performing Arts.  Tickets are required. 
  2. Each graduating student is eligible for six tickets. (Unlike years past, the limited number of tickets guarantees six tickets per student, even if that student lives in multiple households.)  The first two are free and the remaining four may be purchased at $5.00/ticket if/when the student is “cleared” to pick up tickets.  *Please see the Senior Timeline for ticket sale dates.
  3. Seating in Silva Hall in the Hult Center is divided into three sections;  Orchestra, Mezzanine, and Balcony.  Tickets are distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis beginning with the orchestra seating.  Six tickets will be set aside (including two in the orchestra section) for each graduate until the open sales date, May 31.
  4. Students who wish to purchase more than their allotted six tickets will have to request an additional number of tickets at the time their first six tickets are picked up.  Additional tickets, beyond the first six, will cost $15.00/ticket and will be sold by random lottery and based on the student’s initial request.
  5. Auditions to speak and/or perform at Graduation will be held on Thursday and Friday, April 20 & 21 during lunch.  Please prepare ahead of time and sign up in the main office.

Winter Weather: How to know when schools are closed

Winter Weather: How to know when schools are closed
4J Winter Weather Updates

*see Sheldon’s Two Hour Delay/Hazardous Weather schedule at the bottom of this page!

When winter weather arrives, schools may be closed or delayed or buses may use snow routes. School districts decide early in the morning whether there is a need to change the school schedule or bus routes. These decisions are made districtwide and are the same for every 4J school.

There are several ways to find out if there is a change on snowy or icy days:

• Text-message alerts via Twitter — to sign up, just text FOLLOW 4JWEATHER to 40404
• 4J website, www.4j.lane.edu
• KRVM 91.9 FM
• Other radio and television news stations

If there is a school closure or other change, the school district will announce it before 6:30 a.m. If schools and buses are on their regular schedule, there will NOT be an announcement.

Parents of students who ride school buses that have alternate snow routes have been informed of what to do. Snow route information can be found on the district website at www.4j.lane.edu/transportation/snowroutes.

If school is in session, families are encouraged to consider road conditions in their areas and make their own decisions based on safety. Parents’ individual decisions about school attendance will be honored.

For more information, visit www.4j.lane.edu/weather.

Días de mal clima en el invierno: Cómo saber si las escuelas estarán cerradas
Inscríbase para obtener textos de alerta

Cuando hay mal tiempo en el invierno, las escuelas pueden cerrar o comenzar tarde y los autobúses pueden cambiar a las rutas de nieve. Los distritos escolares deciden temprano en la mañana si es necesario cambiar el horario escolar o las rutas de los autobuses. Estas decisiones son tomadas por el distrito entero y son las mismas para todas las escuelas de 4J.

Los padres de familia tienen varias formas de informarse si hay un cambio en las escuelas en los días cuando hay nieve o hielo:

• Antes del mal tiempo, puede suscribirse a las mensajes de texto para avisos (en ingles) — enviar a 40404 un texto que dice FOLLOW 4JWEATHER
• Puede marcar el número de teléfono de emergencia en español, 541-790-7738
• Puede visitar el sitio web del distrito www.4j.lane.edu (en inglés)
• También, puede escuchar a la estación de radio KRVM-FM 91.9 (en inglés), o otras estaciones de radio y de televisión que también estarán anunciando si las escuelas están cerradas.

El distrito escolar anunciará al público antes de las 6:30 a.m. si las escuelas estarán cerradas debido al clima o si los autobuses han sido activados para las rutas de nieve. El distrito no hará ningún anuncio al público si los horarios y rutas no son cambiados.

Los padres de los estudiantes que viajan en los buses que utilizan rutas de nieve han sido informados de lo que deben hacer. Información sobre las rutas de nieve se puede encontrar en el sitio web www.4j.lane.edu/transportation/snowroutes.

Si las clases están en sesión, tome en cuenta la condición de las carreteras en su área para tomar una decisión dando prioridad a su seguridad. Respetaremos la decisión que tomen los padres de familia en cuanto a la asistencia a clases.

Para más información en inglés, visite el sitio web www.4j.lane.edu/weather.
