Dia de Los Muertos

This week is Dia de los Muertos. To celebrate we’ve placed an altar by the planters. Please don’t touch it, but feel free to admire it respectfully.

Native American Heritage Month

Churchill High School would like to acknowledge that our institution sits on the homelands of the Kalapuya people.

In the treaties of 1851 and 1854–1855 and the subsequent forced removals of many Indian people from western Oregon, some of the Kalapuya were moved to the Grand Ronde Reservation and some to the Siletz Reservation.  It is important to note that all of Lane County was an important trading and gathering area for camas and other resources.

During the Restoration Era, from 1977 to 1989, Lane County was designated as the Service Area for the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians, the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Indians, the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians, the Coquille Indian Tribe, and the Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Indians.

Churchill High School acknowledges that descendants of the original and Service Area inhabitants of this land are still here today. They are thriving members of our schools and communities. Countless members of other tribes now also call our community and schools their home.

We wish to thank those original stewards of this land. We as fellow stewards of this land wish to remember that we need to take good care of this land and good care of all members of our school district and community.

Prevent Vehicle Break-Ins

On campus, at home, or anywhere you park your vehicle, keep your stuff safe. No matter how long you expect to be gone, lock your car and take the keys. Leave your windows closed. Do not leave your backpack, athletic bag, or other personal items in your vehicle where they can be seen. If you must leave something in your vehicle, stow it out of sight in your trunk. Never leave your student computer in your vehicle.
