At this time, Miners has not received the cap and gown orders. When they arrive, North Eugene will work the district and Miners to determine the best way to distribute caps and gowns to students. As soon as we have information, it will be shared on the North Eugene website and social media pages (Facebook and Instagram).

Those of you that ordered graduation announcements and other senior products from Miners Graduate Services this school year can pick up your orders at their office. You can stay in your car and let them know the student’s name/school; they will then locate the order and give it to you through the car window.  The process to receive the order at their office will take about 5 minutes and then you will be on your way.

Free Xfinity WiFi Hotspots: Xfinity WiFi hotspots located in businesses and outdoor locations have been made available for students and the community to use for free.

  • Xfinity Internet customers can sign in using their Xfinity ID and password to be automatically connected to Xfinity WiFi hotspots in the future. Non-Xfinity Internet customers can connect by clicking the Accept and Connect button. Non-Xfinity customers will be able to renew their complimentary sessions every 12 hours.Other Free Open WiFi Hotspots: Check if you have access to any other open wireless network broadcast near you from any other provider.

A Note About Bandwidth: We understand many people trying to work from home will put demands on bandwidth. Digital learning opportunities will be at varied times, so your students may not always need to be online at the same times during the day

We would love to have students contribute to the 2019/2020 yearbook. Please send submissions of artwork, photographs, poems, stories, etc. to huot_r@4j.lane.edu and give it the subject line “For our Yearbook.”
If you need some ideas of what to do, here are some prompts to inspire you: What makes North special to you? What is your vision for the future? What makes you happy? If you could talk to anyone in the world (dead or alive), who would it be and what would you say to them? How are you dealing with the coronavirus pandemic?
