Calendar Update: No School Nov. 12
Posted on 11/03/2021

ESTACADA, Or.— The Estacada School District has updated the 2021-2022 school year calendar to designate Friday, November 12th as a staff workday. There will be no school for students districtwide on this day.

Thursday, November 11th is already designated as a no-school day, in recognition of Veterans Day. The district has made the decision to support both students and staff with a school closure on the 12th as we anticipate high levels of absences on the Friday following Veterans Day.

District leaders also recognize that transitioning this day to a staff workday will allow time for additional valuable collaboration and work as our teachers and support staff diligently strive to execute high levels of communication and academic reporting for all families.

Additionally, this day will serve as an opportunity for students, staff, and families to rest and recuperate. Our staff and families are already observing high levels of fatigue as children adjust to fulltime in-person learning again. It is important to our leaders that we are providing staff and students with appropriate opportunities to recharge and return to school ready to execute the high levels of learning that we expect.

The district would like to thank our families for their flexibility and understanding as we work to structure a school year that enables our students and staff to be the best they can be.
