Third Trimester – The third trimester has begun and classes will continue in the distance learning model until the change to hybrid on April 12th (which will be week three of the trimester). Students should check their schedules in StudentVue.
Student Cohorts – Hybrid instruction begins on Monday, April 12th and student cohort assignments are now available. A message was sent to your email through ParentVue and StudentVue and in most cases, students were assigned to their cohort based on their last name. Students with last names beginning with letters A-L were assigned to Cohort 1, students with last names beginning with letters M-Z were assigned to Cohort 2, and any student that chose the ‘Same School Online’ option are assigned to an Online Only cohort. For Cohorts 1 and 2, we’ve coordinated with our middle schools and elementary schools to accommodate as many families with students at multiple schools and have adjusted cohort assignments accordingly. If you noticed your cohort assignment was incorrect, or you haven’t received your student’s cohort assignment please reach out to the school at (541)790-4500 or email us at NEHS_info@4j.lane.edu. For additional details about the Hybrid instruction model, please visit the 4j school district’s website at:
Protocols – As we prepare to bring students back to the school, there are some changes and protocols that students must adhere to in and around the building. Please see below for some additional information about needed supplies and masking.
Dr. Verification for Allergies – If you have a student with allergies please be sure to get doctor verification. If you student comes to school during hybrid and it looks as though they have flu-like symptoms, they will be asked to quarantine and return home until we can check on their physical health. If these symptoms are due to allergies, the student will be allowed to attend live classes, but we will need verification from the doctor in order to make this happen.
Return to Building: What Students Need
As students gear up to return to the building we wanted to give a list of items they will need. All students that will be on campus will be required to wear a mask (see mask info below). Students will need to bring their school-issued laptop & charger to and from school each day they attend. They will also need to bring class materials as indicated by their teacher. Students will also need a backpack or a bag to carry their items as lockers will not be available for use.
North Eugene is excited to be welcoming back students to the building in a hybrid model this spring, after a year of distance learning! In keeping with local state and federal regulations and recommendations, the district has implemented extensive protocols to protect the health and safety of returning students and staff, including daily screening, physical distancing, cohorting, and increased cleaning procedures.
Students and staff wearing face coverings properly at all times is essential for health and safety. Many students are already used to wearing a face covering, while for others this will be a new experience.
Families are encouraged to pack an extra face covering or two in their student’s backpack in case the one they’re wearing becomes wet or dirty. If you need a face-covering provided for your student, ask your school.
Thank you for helping your students be prepared, safe, and comfortable in their return to in-person learning. For any additional information, please visit our district’s website at: https://www.4j.lane.edu/2021/03/face-coverings-at-school/
Update: Return to School
We are so excited to welcome students back to NEHS! Students in Cohorts 1 and 2 will be returning to the building for in-person learning the week of April 12th. Things will look and feel different than before: smaller classes, signs and posters about physical distancing, people wearing masks, etc. To ensure the health and safety of our students, the school building will have a few modification, protocols, and expectations for EVERYONE to follow.

- Teachers will be Zooming with students at home during the class period (though it will look/feel different than during CDL since there will also be students in the building for class)
- Students should expect the class period to be a combination of group discussion or learning as the teacher addresses both students who are in-person and those at home and time to engage in learning/applications as the teacher addresses and spends time with those in-person and maintains connection with those learning at home.
Entering The Building
When we return, to help manage the flow of students into the building, students will be asked to use an entrance to the school based on their grade level. Please see the map above for the designated entrance point by grade. This entrance designation is for the first period of the day (1st on A days and 4th on B days). If a student arrives after the start of the first period of the day, they will be directed to use the main entrance of the school.
Student Parking Passes
All student that will be driving and parking on campus will need a parking pass. This includes student athletes. Please fill out the Student Parking Pass form below to request a pass. Parking Pass fees have been waived for Trimester 3, but students still need a parking pass. Parking passes are available now.
