The athletic fee covers all costs for athletics and activities during the school year. This year the fee will be a one-time flat fee of $100 for any combination of sports seasons or activities including Music and Drama. You can pay at the high school, or on our on-line Web Store. Although it looks like an option, FamilyID is not set up for payment of the Athletic Fee.
Students on Free/Reduced Lunch are waived the Athletic/Activity Fee. We request that you complete the annual Free & Reduced Application.
We believe everyone should have an opportunity to participate in athletics and activities. Please let us know if you need assistance due to financial hardship. Contact Dennis Burke, Athletic Director, for a confidential conversation at BurkeD@wlwv.k12.or.us or 503-673-7630.

Safety Protocols for Season One Activities
The protocols and procedures have been collaboratively established through the work of district and high school leaders in addition to the WLWV District Leadership Safety Team. Our staff is committed to each student’s safety, health, and welfare. By taking care of our students, we are also taking care of our community.
These are some key health and safety protocols that will be in place:
- Proper Social Distancing and Face Masks requirements.
- For outdoor workouts, cohorts can now be 20 students and 1 coach. This limits the exposure of students coming and going from campus.
- Coaches will only be allowed to work with 1 cohort per day.
- Contact Tracing: Students and Staff must sign in and check out daily (QR code system), adhering to proper mask portocols and bag/water bottles/equipment spacing. All to be provided by the student.
- Students will be allowed up to 90 minutes on campus, this includes a 15-minute check in, 60 minute workout, and 15 minute check out routine.
- Students use of facilities and restrooms will follow safety guidelines for restricted use by multiple users and frequent sanitization.
- To maintain the integrity of stable cohorts, students will be restricted from interacting before and after activity sessions.
- Due to COVID-19, we must limit the number of people on campuses. Parents/Guardians and visitors/spectators are not allowed on campus for the workouts. Please remain in your cars for drop off and pickup.
District leaders and staff will be monitoring safety protocols closely. Any presumptive or positive case of COVID-19 will be reported to our local health authority and may result immediately in either suspension or closure of the activity.
