Safety Week at Meadow View
This week is Safety Week. Meadow View staff and students will practice a lockdown drill, earthquake drill, directed evacuation and fire drill. These are rehearsals that we hope to never have to implement. However, we practice our drills to make sure everyone knows what to do in the event of an emergency.
Meadow View students and staff will practice a lockdown drill. Lockdown is the command used in the event of a threat-or perceived threat at or near our school. During our drill, an intercom announcement will inform staff and students that the drill will begin. Staff will then be asked to secure their classrooms. Teachers will lock classroom doors, close the blinds, move students away from the windows, turn out the lights, and ask students to remain quiet. The drill will last about five minutes, at which point another announcement will be made that the drill is over. Teachers will talk to students to prepare them for the lockdown drill. They will let students know that during a lockdown it is very important to stay quiet and listen to adult directions in order to stay safe. Teachers will also share that in the event of imminent danger, they may ask students (depending on grade level) to help barricade the door to make sure no one can enter the room or ask students to quickly evacuate the building. Tools that teachers will be using during these conversations are scripts that were created by the District Safety Committee and videos that were created in partnership with Eugene Police Department.

We will also practice an earthquake drill and follow the Drop, Cover and Hold On protocol. Following our earthquake drill, we will conduct a directed evacuation. We intend to continue sharing our plans with you as we work together to ensure a safe school environment for all.

Hi Meadow View Families,
I have encouraging news to share. The student who was hit by a car while crossing Avalon this week has undergone successful surgery for a broken leg. The student also has mild concussion and a fractured pelvis. The pelvis is expected to heal without surgery. The student will be in the hospital for at least a few more days. The parents wanted to share their appreciation to the Meadow View community for the support shown to them and their child.
Meanwhile, the City sent staff to observe the crossing of Avalon at Haviture Way and the City is actively considering options to make the area safer for all residents. I will send another update when there is news to share.
Have a great weekend.

Hi Meadow View Families,
I need to share some troubling news today. A Meadow View student crossing the street was hit by a car on Avalon near Haviture Way while riding a scooter home from school around 2:40 Wednesday afternoon. This was a serious accident and the student was transported to Riverbend hospital with a leg injury. We are awaiting further news on the student’s condition.
There were elementary and middle school-aged students at the scene and you may have children talking about this accident. We want to be respectful and discourage the spreading of rumors. If your child seems to be having trouble with the news, please refer them to our school counselor.
I will share any updated news with you as soon as it becomes available. As always, contact me with any questions.
Meadow View Principal
We have two exciting events coming up. Our K-5 Back to School Night will take place on Tuesday, September 25th from 5:30-6:30pm and our 6-8 Curriculum Night is scheduled for Thursday, September 27th from 5:30-6:30pm.
At K-5 Back to School Night, parents will have the opportunity to tour the classroom with their child, celebrate current learning and classroom community as well as gain an understanding of what their student will experience this school year. Grade level teams will share more information about the evening with parents soon.
At 6-8 Curriculum Night, parents will walk through a shortened, mock schedule of their child’s day, learn about the curriculum covered in each class, grading, expectations and future learning. This is a great sneak peek into your child’s daily routine as they navigate middle school and prepare for high school and beyond.
