Important School Information

OFFICE HOURS

Our office is open from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday (except for holidays and closure days).

GET CONNECTED!

Most district communication and updates for families will occur via email and online platforms, and all student education (except for hybrid in-person days) will occur in this format.  If you need assistance with this, please reach out via DDSD family support for technology: Phone number-503.261.8391, Email: family_help_desk@ddsd40.org 

TECHNOLOGY FOR STUDENTS

We will be able to provide each student with a Chromebook.  If you have not picked up a Chromebook for your student, you may do so at the school office.

If you are having technical issues with using a district-issued Chromebook or accessing distance learning, please see our Family Tech Support page.

SCHOOL-YEAR CALENDAR

The calendars for elementary, middle and high school are available on our district website.  These calendars show all of our school breaks, holidays and other days off.

STUDENT DAILY SCHEDULE

Students will have a daily schedule from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  There will be scheduled time blocks including a mix of live teaching sessions, recorded sessions, student work time, lunch, movement, small group breakout sessions, and specials (music, P.E., and library).  Some students are now attending school in the building part time, but they will still have online classes and asynchronous work to complete. Please connect with your child’s teacher about their specific schedule.

MEALS DURING CDL 

DDSD is providing to-go breakfast, lunch, and dinner sacks.
The USDA has provided waivers that allow us to offer FREE meals to all children ages 1-18 for the rest of the 2020-21 school year.
Information about food service for Hybrid and CDL students is on our Meal Service page.

CURRICULUM

The elementary curriculum for this school year will be FuelEd,  a research-backed online curriculum that is designed to meet the needs of each student.  This video provides more information about FuelEd.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES

We typically charge a $20.00 supply fee for each of our students.  We will not be charging parents during distance learning.  

Supply kits have been distributed to families. If you did not receive one yet, please contact our office.

HAVE MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT COMPREHENSIVE DISTANCE LEARNING?

Available via the DDSD website is a document intended to answer some of your questions about CDL – the who, what, where, why and when of distance learning. Comprehensive Distance Learning is a new way of learning and teaching for students and staff, and we are all adapting as new information and challenges emerge. You may find this document in English, Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, Somali, and Chinese at the following url: https://www.ddouglas.k12.or.us/2020/08/2020-21-school-year-plan/
