Lockout at Clear Lake

Clear Lake Families,

Our school went into what we call a lockout for about 20 minutes this morning at the request of Eugene Police.  This means that students and teachers were asked to remain in their classrooms but exterior doors were locked as teaching and learning continued as usual. Police were responding to a potentially suicidal person near Golden Gardens Park, and in an abundance of caution we were asked to keep everyone inside. Police say he was not a direct threat to Clear Lake or our students.

As always, your child’s safety is very important to us, and I also believe it is important to keep you updated on events such as this. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. And check out the District’s School Safety page to learn more about Lockouts, Lockdowns, and how we respond to emergency situations.

Back to School/Curriculum Night:
Thursday, October 3rd is Back to School/Curriculum Night from 6:00-7:00pm. This is a great chance for you to hear about what your child is learning this year as well as what the expectations are for learning and behavior. Please join us for a night of learning on October 3rd from 6:00-7:00!

Fall Jog-A-Thon:
Tuesday, October 8th from 2:00-2:55 is our Fall Jog-A-Thon! Your child has brought home a flyer as well as a pledge sheet. They can either get a pledge for each lap they run or a general flat rate “donation”. On October 8th, have your child bring a pledge sheet as well as any money they have collected. Once the jog-a-thon is over, we will give your child a tally of how many laps they ran and they can collect the rest of their pledges.
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! If you’d like to be a helper on October 8th we would be so thankful! Make sure you fill out the background check form BEFORE October 8th and let our office know you want to volunteer for the day.

Picture Day:
Tuesday, October 15th is Picture Day! A notice was sent home in Tuesday Folders this week, look for reminders and order forms coming home soon.

It’s shaping up to be a busy October!
