Share your stories and celebrations!

Stay Home. Stay Healthy. Stay Connected.

While students and many school staff are staying home to stay healthy and save lives, engaging in
learning from a distance, we are all still connected and in this together.

Eugene School District 4J is sharing stories of kindness and connection, enrichment and inspiration,
on all of our social media platforms under #4JBetterTogether.

#4JBetterTogether will highlight positive things happening in our school community, showcase
talented 4J students and staff, and provide fun and enriching activities to do at home.

Join in! Share your story.

Yellow Jacket Traps at RMS
Facilities is placing non-toxic pheromone yellow jacket traps out at all elementary, middle and some high schools to attempt to reduce the number of nests that are established annually. Though these traps are intrinsically safe for staff, students and beneficial pollinators, they are considered a pesticide by ODA and we are required to notify all staff, faculty, adult students, parents or guardians of minor students of their use.
