Electronic Waste Recycling Contest

Irving Families,

This week, May 15th-May 19th Irving is participating in an Electronic Waste Recycling Contest through NextStep and Partners for Sustainable Schools.  Flyers went home in Friday folders. Electronic recycling

Here’s how it works:

  1.  Families/staff/neighbors can donate electronics directly at NextStep.  Just tell NextStep you are donating for Irving Elementary.  NextStep will add the total collected pounds to Irving’s total.  (Drop off location: 2101 W. 10th Ave, Eugene)
  2. Families/staff/neighbors can donate directly at school between May 15th-19th.  There is a large collection box near the front office door. 

What can be donated? 

If it plugs in or runs on batteries… it can be recycled by NextStep! Computers, cell phones, monitors, cables, laptops, keyboards, mice, hair dryers, blenders, monitors, coffee makers, toasters and much, much more.  Light bulbs and regular batteries are not part of this collection but rechargeable batteries are welcome.

Thanks for helping Irving in it’s Waste Recycling Contest!  For more information about he contest click here.

Student Safety Alert

Student Safety Alert

We are sharing the following information at the recommendation of Eugene Police.

Around 12:30 today, Tuesday April 4th, a man in a white SUV allegedly tried to kidnap a young woman who was on foot near Everyone’s Market on Echo Hollow Road.

The young woman – who is not a student – managed to escape and is safe and unharmed, but police want everyone to be aware of their surroundings and keep an eye out for a white GMC Yukon with tinted windows.

Again, no one was harmed but students are asked to be especially aware of their surroundings.
