Children must be five years old by September 1, 2016, to enroll for the 2016-17 school year. Register at your "home" school as soon as possible. Doing so helps schools ensure they have the staff in place to welcome and support your child through a positive and rewarding experience. To confirm your assigned home school of attendance, please call Transportation at 503.844.1123.  

 NOTE: Requests for kindergarten transfers (to attend a school other than your home school) will be considered August 1 - 19, subject to space availability. Your student must be registered at their home school before submitting a transfer application.

Principal's Message

Dear Jackson Families,

It has been an awesome start to our school year!  Thank you for all the time and effort you are putting in to send us kids who are ready to learn, excited to be here, and so safe, respectful, and responsible!  We have just finished up our 16-17 School Improvement Plan, "SIP," and I will review it with parents who are able to come to the Coffee Chat on October 7th at 8 AM.  For those who are interested, here is our SIP summary.

There are many ways to be "in the know" about Jackson activities - click HERE to learn more.

Jackson is proud to have a life skills classroom. If you want to know more about inclusion and our work with students, please read this letter.


Sarah Crane, Ed.D.

NO EXCEPTIONS. To  sign up to volunteer, please visit www.hsd.k12.or.us and go to Community  and then Volunteering

Visitors need to sign in and out on the white log.  During any school evacuation drill or a real evacuation, please make sure to check in with the school secretary.
