Fall Safety Reminders

fall leaves

The changing of the seasons is a beautiful time of year in Eastern Oregon. It is also a time that daylight hours are shorter, falling leaves and environmental factors make driving conditions more dangerous. The Pendleton School District reminds drivers to be cautious when traveling through school zones and near bus stops.

November is just around the corner and that means temperatures will be dropping and weather conditions can impact school operations. Please remember that when the forecast calls for freezing temperatures combined with precipitation, school may be delayed or closed. Here is how the Pendleton School District communicates about these situations:

  1. School Messenger -- the district sends a recorded message to staff and parents by phone in early morning
  2. District Website & Facebook Page - messages are posted here, usually by 6:00 AM
  3. Media -- information is broadcast on local radio stations and online at the East Oregonian

Pendleton School District -- Every Student, Every Day.
