For those of you who are picking up your child, please read. Pick-up is in front of the old school. We really need all parents/guardians staying in your vehicles and driving in front of the old school. You can pull into the parking area, we will then send your child to your vehicle, and you can leave. For a variety of reasons and safety, please do this. If you have any questions, please contact the administration. Thank you!

The North Powder School District has moved the start date with students to September 8, 2020. This change was made due to a district determination that it would be in the best interest of families, students, and staff to delay the first day of school with students. In order to prepare for Comprehensive Distance Education per current ODE guidelines, there is additional professional development and planning that will need to occur for staff, students and families. This professional development will include online curriculum training, implementation of the district's operational blueprint for onsite education, and opportunities to meet with students and parents to update them on the online process and answer questions. This change in the starting date will not change any other dates on the calendar at the current time due to ODE guidelines allowing additional hours for professional development to count towards instructional time.
