Welcome to the Pendleton School District!

The Pendleton School District always strives to keep its facilities in good condition for the best educational experience for Pendleton students. Voters were asked to consider a General Obligation Bond on the Nov. 5, 2013, general election ballot, and the PSD would like to thank Pendleton voters for passing this bond with nearly 65% of the vote! The PSD will now move forward with its plans to update and improve facilities, and the community will be informed along the way. Be sure to look for opportunities to provide feedback coming soon!

The District has developed a Master Facilities Plan outlining some of these facilities improvements, and the following quick links will provide you with the information you need to know as Pendleton looks to the future of its schools.

Trespassers find rifles on Sherwood roof

Pendleton Police removed two rusted and inoperable rifles found by youth trespassing on a roof at Sherwood Heights Elementary School Wednesday evening. Just two staff, but no students, were in the building at the time, and no one was injured or in danger.

Pendleton School District Assistant Superintendent Tricia Mooney said a school secretary heard footsteps on the roof of the school, and went outside to tell the trespassers to come down. The youth then ran off went and told an adult, who reported the incident to police, who safely addressed the situation. It is unknown how the rifles got onto the roof of the school on Southwest Marshall Avenue, and school staff and administrators were unaware of the details of the situation until today.

“School and student safety and security are a top priority for the Pendleton School District,” Mooney said. “The District maintains a cooperative working relationship with the Pendleton Police Department, and we take these issues seriously.”

Mooney said the incident highlights the need for a new building at Sherwood, which will be constructed with new safety and security features, including less accessibility to trespassers over the next two years thanks to a bond passed by voters last fall. In the meantime, the District is looking into temporary modifications to avoid future roof access by non-authorized people.

PSD seeks feedback on mobile app use

The Pendleton School District wants to hear from the public about its use of the Pendleton SD mobile app, which launched last October. Now that the app has been in use for nearly a full school year, the District is looking to the public for feedback to see where improvements can be made.

A survey is available for the community to provide feedback by clicking here.

The app, which is available for a free download on Apple and Android devices, provides mobile-friendly access to information on school announcements, schedules, lunch menus, student grades, a school directory and more. Updates to the District’s bond projects can also be found on the app. In addition, the District is able to send users “push notifications” to quickly announce important information, such as school closures or delays. This feature was used last week when a large fire closed roads and prevented some school buses from transporting students home on schedule.

The Pendleton School District was the first school district in eastern Oregon to have a mobile app, and one of only a handful in the state.
