Churchill Families, 

Here we go, we are in the final stretch of the 2023-2024 school year!  Next week is the last week for our seniors, and then only one more week after that for our 9th -11th graders. 

It’s hard to believe that we will be saying goodbye to our seniors next Friday, June 7th, and then celebrating them in our Graduation ceremony on June 11th at the Hult Center.  This senior class is filled with amazing students - future scientists, athletes, thespians, artists, engineers, leaders… wonderful young minds, and people who will definitely make a huge mark on this world.  The Class of 2024 has persevered and stayed strong during their 4 years of high school.  They have gone through so much —  Covid, hybrid learning, schedule changes, changes in the building, school district, and world… and yet, they kept coming each day to learn, inspire each other and the staff, connect with each other, and make a difference in our Churchill community and school.  

Class of 2024, thank you so much for all that you have done and for being a great example of what a Lancer is.  Go out into the world and make us proud!!

Go, Lancers!
Missy Cole, Principal

SEED Student Survey 
New this year, the Oregon Department of Education is requiring all students, grades 3-11 be given the opportunity to complete the SEED survey. For more information, the 4J Seed Survey page is linked here.  The survey takes about 15 minutes and will be offered during our 6/12 Advisory class.

As with state testing, the SEED survey can also be opted out of. For accurate record keeping, if you choose to decline in writing, please do so with this form, which is also available in the front office, or verbally, in person (to Jane, Jill or Giselle), by 6/10/24. If after 6/10, the survey will not be blocked from entry - so please be sure to tell your student not to take the SEED Survey when it is offered if that is your preference.

Get your FREE LTD student transit pass before the end of the school year!

All students in 4J schools can get a student pass to ride Lane Transit District (LTD) buses for free. Student transit passes can be used to travel anywhere within the LTD service area. Student passes can be used at any time—after school, on weekends, and during school breaks, as well as to get to and from school each day.

To get a free LTD student transit pass, available as a tap card or Umo smartphone app, students can request their pass at the front office for elementary students. Passes are valid from September 1 of the current school year to September 30 of the following year and can be renewed by the school each year for ongoing free service. 

¡Obtenga el pase de tránsito LTD GRATUITO antes de que finalice el año escolar!

Todos los estudiantes de las escuelas 4J pueden obtener un pase para viajar en los autobuses del Distrito de Tránsito de Lane (LTD) de forma gratuita. Los pases de transporte para estudiantes se pueden usar para viajar a cualquier lugar dentro del área de servicio de LTD. Los pases para estudiantes se pueden usar en cualquier momento: después de la escuela, los fines de semana y durante las vacaciones escolares, así como para ir y volver de la escuela todos los días.

Los pases son válidos desde el 1 de septiembre del año escolar actual hasta el 30 de septiembre del año siguiente y la escuela puede renovarlos cada año para continuar con el servicio gratuito.

Churchill Cheer Tryouts

Home Safety Opportunity: Restricting Lethal Means 
Pick up a FREE lockbox for your handgun, rifle, and/or medication at the Churchill front office, or talk to your student's counselor.
Suicide is a leading cause of death among young people in Oregon, and has recently increased in Lane County. The district is working with public health and other partners to provide families with information and resources for suicide prevention.
There are steps you can take to help keep your family members safe if they experience an emotional crisis or think about suicide. One important measure is to reduce easy access to things that could be dangerous to them: “lethal means.” Lethal means include firearms, prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, sharp objects, and belts, cords, and cables.
Reducing access to lethal means saves lives. Most people who live through a suicide attempt do not later die by suicide. Suicide attempts using firearms are very likely to be fatal.

Firearms, medications, and other lethal means can be restricted by removing them or locking them in secure storage. It is essential that youth cannot know the combination or be able to get the key. Lockboxes are being offered to 4J families at no charge.

We are very excited to announce that the Churchill Athletic Department has partnered with FinalForms, an online forms and data management service.
FinalForms allows you to complete and sign athletic participation forms for your students. The most exciting news is that FinalForms saves data from season-to-season and year-to-year, meaning that you will never need to enter the same information twice!
FinalForms also pre-populates information wherever possible, for each of your students, saving you time.

You may review your data at any time to verify it is current. You will be required to sign your forms once per year and after any update.


Click on the Parent Registration Playbook to get started in FinalForms. If you require any support during the process, scroll to the page bottom and click “Get Help”.

We are asking the parents/guardians of all students planning to play sports to create accounts in FinalForms and register your student(s).

This includes students participating in summer pre-season workouts. Register for the sport(s) you anticipate participating in.

Thank you for your assistance in streamlining our paperwork process at Churchill High School.

Ways to Support Churchill Students

Become a Churchill Community Responder

A Churchill Community Responder is a volunteer that responds to “alerts” sent by the 15th Night Coordinator for needs specific to CHS students that internal school resources have not met. Types of alerts would be for items such as clothing, shoes, small household items, food or bedding, small gift cards, etc.

A Churchill Community Responder would receive a text message indicating a need. If the Responder can provide the need, they respond to the text message and work with the CHS Coordinator to secure and deliver the item. If you are unable to help with that alert you simply ignore the alert.

Pertussis FAQ from Lane County Health

Families are encouraged to stay up-to-date with their pertussis vaccinations and keep children home from school if they show symptoms of pertussis.
