Churchill Choir Lifts Us Up

Great work, Lancers! We couldn’t be prouder.
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 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 Sarah Mazze at email@example.com or 541-516-0887 with any questions.
All students who plan to graduate and walk in the graduation ceremony this year should visit our Graduation! page for information about deadlines, requirements, contacts, and events. Check back frequently for updates and look for the Graduation at a G’Lance newsletter in your email inbox.

Bullying, Harassment, and Discrimination
Eugene School District 4J has policies and programs to prohibit and prevent bullying and harassment, including intimidation, cyberbullying, hazing and teen dating violence. Discrimination, meaning any act that has the purpose or effect of unreasonably differentiating in treatment in any instructional program, extracurricular activity, or in the provision of any other service or benefit, is prohibited on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation (actual or perceived), gender identity or expression, national origin, marital status, age or disability.
The district encourages students, parents and other patrons to share their concerns with district officials if they believe they or someone else has been the victim of bullying and harassment, including intimidation, cyberbullying, hazing and teen dating violence, or discrimination. No reprisal or adverse action will occur as a consequence of initiating a complaint in good faith.
Incidents should be reported to the school principal or another staff member.
