Every September, National Voter Registration Day encourages Americans to register to vote and celebrate America's freedom to have citizens shape federal, state, and local governments. Mrs. Anderson's American Government class celebrated the day by voluntarily registering to vote if kids chose to. (Voters can register at the age of 16 in Oregon, even though they won't receive ballots until the age of 18.) Another generation of voters is on its way!

Parents, we have changed the way students enter the building in the morning. If you drop your child off at school, please enter the main parking lot and drop them off at the front door. The only students who should be dropped off at the back parking lot (Mill Street entrance) should be preschool children. K-12th grade students should not arrive at school before 7:45 a.m. Preschool students should arrive at 8:00 a.m. Thank you for following these guidelines for the safety of all students.
Parents, this is just a reminder that all athletes need a current physical to participate in extra-curricular sports. Athletes need a physical in grades 7, 9, and 11 with the exception of football players who need a physical every year. If you are not sure if your child is due for a physical, you can contact the school office. Attached is a copy of the schedule for the OCH Mobile Medical Unit's visits to the Dufur School Campus. It has the link you will need to schedule an appointment. You can use this to schedule for sports physicals as well as the other services listed.
