PREVENTING SUICIDE AND PROMOTING MENTAL HEALTH:

QPR (QUESTION, PERSUADE, REFER) TRAINING FOR FAMILIES

In collaboration with Sheldon High School, Cal Young Middle School, and Monroe Middle School we invite you to a QPR (Question, Refer, Persuade) Zoom with Lane County’s Suicide Prevention/Mental Health Promotion Coordinator Roger Brubaker on Wednesday, April 28th from 6:00pm-7:30pm via zoom

LTD BUS SERVICE FOR STUDENTS:

Students ride transit for free!
Lane Transit District (LTD) will continue allowing students to ride without a bus pass until September. For now, all students need to do to ride free is tell the driver that they are a 4J student. When LTD resumes student fare collection, students can still ride for free, but only if they get a pass from their school. We will share more information about how to get a free pass as we near September. Please contact mazze_s@4j.lane.edu or 541-516-0887 with any questions.

¡Los estudiantes tienen transporte gratis!

El distrito de tránsito de Lane (LTD) continuará a permitir que los estudiantes puedan usar el bus sin su pase hasta el mes de septiembre. Por ahora, lo único que tienen que hacer los estudiantes para obtener su pase es notificar al conductor del bus que son estudiantes de 4J. Cuando el LTD reinicia la colección de tarifas estudiantiles, los estudiantes pueden seguir usando el bus gratis, pero solo con el pase de LTD de su escuela. Compartiremos más información sobre como obtener alrededor de septiembre. Por favor, si tiene alguna pregunta o duda, comuníquese conmigo por email a mazze_s@4j.lane.edu o por teléfono al 541-516-0887.

The 4J Climate Action team has put together a week of shifts and a small collection of resources to bring awareness to Earth Day. In partnership with the City of Eugene, 4J Climate Justice Students invite people like you and me to make small shifts for big impacts to help Planet Earth. Shift to a new green habit!

HOW DO YOU FEEL:

To help everyone at school stay healthy, students and staff need to be healthy when they come to school. If your student is feeling unwell, or if they or anyone in their home has primary symptoms of COVID-19 or other communicable diseases, they need to stay at home.

Symptoms that should keep a student home:

  • Fever of 100 or higher
  • Chills, cough, shortness of breath
  • Difficulty breathing
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Diarrhea or vomiting
