Barger Reconstruction Warning

Anyone who has driven on Barger Drive recently is aware of the significant road construction and delays while driving through that area. The work will continue through the first few weeks of school.

  • Anticipate long delays; leave early; pack plenty of patience; stay safe
  • Please encourage your child to walk or bike to school. The sidewalks should be completely refurbished and open by the first day of school.
  • Choose alternative routes, especially for those heading to Willamette High School. The construction at Barger and Echo Hollow is big and you should expect traffic and delays to be substantial.

Here is the good news. The finished roadway will include:

  • Upgraded sidewalk access ramps
  • Traffic signal improvements
  • New median islands with trees and landscaping
  • The addition of stormwater treatment facilities
  • Lane reconfigurations near the Cubit/Echo Hollow intersection, which is annually among the most accident-prone in the city.
  • A Barger bike lane near Cubit that is separated and protected from traffic

To Our Sponsors: You Made a Positive Difference

We would like to send out a special thank you to the companies that donated snacks, gum, fresh fruit and vegetables, bottled water, and hardware to create our snack shacks. It was because of you, that we were able to make testing week a rewarding, positive, and meaningful week for our students.
Thank you to:
• Emerald Fruit and Produce
• Bigfoot Beverages
• McDonald Wholesale
• Winco Foods
• Jerry’s
• Cash and Carry
• Albertsons

With your help we were able to serve over 500 students fresh fruit and vegetables, granola bars, teddy grams, jolly ranchers, gum, and water during our 3-8th grade state testing weeks. Teachers and students were so appreciative of your amazing generosity. These snacks were a huge success because we were able to nourish our kids as they worked diligently on doing their very best on their state assessments. Kudos to these businesses, for understanding the importance of giving back to their communities. We are so thankful and appreciative of your generous spirit.

Thank you again for all that you do for our community, students and their families.
