This has been a year requiring flexibility and a new way of accomplishing tasks that we've taken for granted. On December 8, we were notified that boarding school operations, due to the surge in COVID-19 cases around the country, will continue to be closed for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. Letters have been sent out to all parents and can be accessed here.
The staff and faculty at Chemawa miss our students terribly. It is not the same and we cannot wait until that time that we can reopen our dorms and see students in person every day. It is important to continue to encourage students to attend their classes EVERY DAY and engage in their education. Parents - if your student needs to be absent, please call the office or email us and let us know. We still need to report on absences.
Trimester 2 starts on January 4, 2021. Classes will be loaded for students to join in their Google Classroom. Supplies will be sent out the first couple weeks of January and the January care package should be there by the end of the month.
If you have questions - please contact Ms. Ward at 503-399-5721 x1345 during school hours. You may also email her at firstname.lastname@example.org or message her through the Official Chemawa Facebook page. We will be starting our Parent Chats in January - be on the lookout for those opportunties.
Applications are available for new students for the 2020-2021 school year. Please click here for the most current version. You will need Adobe Reader to access. Print and email/send these in by June 15, 2020 for early acceptances. Some students may be selected for further interviews by phone.
