  • Activity at Frog Pond Site

    Posted by West Linn - Wilsonville School District on 1/19/2023


    The District is working with Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue and the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office to facilitate training at the existing house on the future site for the new primary school at 7151 SW Boeckman Rd. This house will eventually be demolished and the District is excited to offer this now empty facility for training in which firefighters and police will get to learn how to use new equipment for search and rescue and K9 training. This exercise will take place over the next few months. The community will see multiple fire engine’s and other emergency vehicles on the property and possibly “fake smoke” that they will use to mimic search and rescue efforts in smoke from a fire. These exercises will begin next week, January 23rd.


    If you have any questions, please contact the Project Manager:

  • New Athey Creek Middle School Project Updates & Video

    Posted by West Linn - Wilsonville School District on 12/2/2022

    Good afternoon WLWV Community,

    We have multiple project updates to share. Exterior walls of the new school were recently installed in addition to several accompanying components. Interested community members are encouraged to watch this project update video with more details. 

    The contractor also recently erected the sports field lighting at the new Athey Creek Middle School. These fixtures have become a regular feature of modern athletic fields and will support school and community use of the track and field as darkness comes early for much of the year. The modern LED lighting is energy efficient and the fixtures have a high degree of control over the spread of light. The same technology is currently in use at West Linn High School, Wilsonville High School and Wood Middle School. The lights are permitted for use until 10 PM.
