Family Bulletin, September 30, 2022

Hello, Churchill families and students,

Happy Friday!  I hope that your week has gone well and that this weekend brings you time to relax and recoup after this fourth week of school.  Hard to believe that we have been in school for a full month.  The weeks are going by quickly, and soon we will be at mid-terms and then the end of the trimester.   I encourage you to talk to your student(s) about their grades, their assignments, and their classes.  Teachers are updating grades, and some of the first big projects in classes are either due or have just been finished.  There is still plenty of time to raise grades, and get caught up with classes if needed.  Check in with teachers and keep turning in assignments.

Please know that we are here to support you in any way if you have questions or concerns about all things CHS.  We appreciate the partnership that we have with you, our families, and the community, and know that it is a great gift to have your student(s) here with us each day in our classrooms and halls.

Enjoy your weekend.  Go, Lancers!


Missy Cole
Principal, Churchill High School

Resources for talking to your students about violence

With the recent uptick in violence in our nation, our communities, and sadly in our schools, we wanted to offer some tools for talking to your student(s) about violence.  This can be a stressful conversation and one that can cause anxiety for both parents/guardians and students. Parents and families are such critical partners in supporting students and providing guidance following any incidents. The National Association of School Psychologists has resources to assist parents and teachers.


Canvas 101 for students

Are you new to Canvas, or do you just need a refresher? Students and families can enroll in Canvas 101 for Students to learn how to use Canvas.

There are two ways to find this course:


Reporting an Absence

  • Please inform the attendance office each day that your student is absent.
  • Absences need to be excused within 2 business days.
  • Pre-planned absences of three or more days may be excused if arranged in advance by filling out the pre-arranged absence form available in our front office or on our website at

To excuse by 24-hour voice message: 541-790-5102

To excuse by email:


Perfect Attendance Celebrations

We would like to celebrate our students when everyone is in class and on time for 1st period!  When this occurs, teachers will notify Administration that they have perfect attendance, and then we will come to the class to celebrate, recognize their effort, and share a small prize with the teacher and class.  We hope to branch this out to all classes as the year goes on to be in class, on time, and ready to learn.


Volunteer for Site Council

Site Council is a group of teachers, support staff, students, and parent representatives who determine the mission, vision, and school improvement goals for Churchill High School. Churchill is looking for new community members that would like to be part of this important work. Our meetings are once a month and will always honor the time of our team. Please contact Assistant Principal Lancelot Falcon ( for further information.

Get to School Safely!

We encourage students to get to school using active transportation like walking, biking, skating, and scooting, or shared transportation like busing and carpooling. It’s great for their health and the environment and makes the space around our school safer and less trafficked.

Please take a look at the safety tip sheets for walking and biking on our regional Safe Routes to School website, and go over some of the safety tips with your student:

Finally, when choosing a walking or biking route, try a route other than the one you would use to drive to school. Sidewalk riding on busy streets is dangerous because people driving don’t expect people biking on sidewalks. Quieter neighborhood streets may be a better option. Safe Routes to School has walking maps on their website, here:  You can also connect with our Safe Routes to School staff for route planning assistance at or 541-790-7539.

¡Llegue a la escuela con seguridad!

Alentamos a los estudiantes a llegar a la escuela utilizando medios de transporte activos, como caminar, andar en bicicleta, patinar y andar en patineta, o medios de transporte compartidos, como autobuses y vehículos compartidos. Es excelente para su salud y el medio ambiente y hace que el espacio alrededor de nuestra escuela sea más seguro y menos transitado.

Eche un vistazo a las hojas de consejos de seguridad para caminar y andar en bicicleta en el sitio web de Rutas seguras a la escuela de nuestra región, y repase algunos de los consejos de seguridad con su estudiante:

Finalmente, cuando elija una ruta para caminar o andar en bicicleta, pruebe con una ruta diferente a la que usaría para conducir a la escuela. Andar en bicicleta en las aceras es peligroso porque las personas que manejan no esperan que las personas anden en bicicleta en las aceras. Las calles más tranquilas del vecindario pueden ser una mejor opción. Safe Routes to School tiene mapas para caminar en su sitio web, aquí:  También puede conectarse con nuestro personal de Safe Routes to School para obtener asistencia en la planificación de rutas en mazze_s@ o 541-790-7539.
