The Pendleton School Board has approved new boundaries for the district's elementary schools. The new boundaries will take effect starting with the 2016-2017 school year, when the two new elementary schools, Sherwood Heights and Washington, will be operational. The map shows the proposed boundaries:

GRAY -- proposed Sherwood School boundary

BLUE -- proposed Washington School boundary

GREEN -- proposed McKay School boundary

The Pendleton School District is working with the City of Pendleton on the city's Transportation System Plan update. The city is in the process of evaluating pedestrian, bicycle and transit options within the transportation plan and is seeking community input. Since the school district is involved in transporting students by bus and students use other methods, including walking and biking, to get to and from school, the district is a natural partner in the process.

This past spring, the Pendleton School District invited parents, students, staff and community members to be involved in a Thoughtexchange engagement process. Participants were asked to share their thoughts about our schools, and then review and prioritize their own thoughts and the thoughts of others.

After engaging the community in a Thoughtexchange process, the Pendleton School District is ready to share the results. Last spring, the district began an online engagement process called Thoughtexchange, where people were able to share thoughts and priorities for the future of community schools. During three steps – Share, Star and Discover – students, parents, school staff and the Pendleton community were asked to highlight what is important to them in schools and district wide.

McKay Creek Elementary School evacuated students and staff as a precautionary measure at approximately 1:05 p.m. today after a student reported a powdery substance inside of a military-style bag to a teacher. Students and staff followed proper evacuation procedures and loaded onto buses, but were not transported. Emergency personnel confirmed the substance was actually weightlifting powder, and the evacuation was lifted at approximately 1:50 p.m. All students and staff remained safe during the incident.
