New Morning Routine Begins TOMORROW – Please Read

Please do not have students at school before our supervised time at 8:15. This does not include our music morning students!

Students will now have the opportunity to access three areas of school between 8:15 and 8:35!

  1. Cafeteria (breakfast or hang with friends – no phones)
  2. North Computer Lab (games, homework, music)
  3. Small Gym (basketball, volleyball)

Students should enter on the South Side of the gym in the morning. 

Please remind students that once they are on campus, they cannot leave campus. Please also remind students to pick one of those places, as hanging out in the front of the school is no longer a supervised area, therefore not an option.

Thank you for your support as we aim to spread out our students and allow them to have some fun in the morning! 


Also, check your calendar for Sunday, February 24th at 12:00! We have a super fun Cascade Community Building event coming to you for free! Details to come home with students tomorrow!!

Lockout Lifted at Cascade

The lockdown has been lifted at Cascade. At the request of Eugene Police we kept all students in their classrooms until a search of the Willamette High School campus could be completed. There was a report of a potential threat on or near the Willamette campus and in an abundance of caution we were asked to lock our exterior doors. Police could not find any threat at Willamette.

Our thanks to Cascade students for again responding quickly and following directions.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Lockout at Cascade

At the request of Eugene Police we are currently in Lockout. There was a report of a potential threat on or near the Willamette campus and in an abundance of caution we were asked to lock our outside doors. Police have responded and are searching the WHS campus. All students at Willamette are being kept in their classrooms. We will provide more information as we get it.

This has nothing to do with the events at Cascade last week. Please do not call or come to the school.
