In a school zone, stop and yield to pedestrians crossing the crosswalk or intersection — remember, the speed limit is 20 miles per hour.
Always stop for school crossing guards.
Take extra care to look out for students in school zones, near playgrounds and parks, and in all residential areas.
If the red lights on a school bus are flashing and the stop arm is extended, traffic must stop to allow students to safely enter and exit. Wait until the lights stop flashing before continuing forward.
Watch out for bikers — slow down and leave at least three feet of space when passing.
Check side mirrors for approaching bicyclists before opening your door.
WLWV Students Gain Hands-On Environmental Science Experience Through CREST Internship Pathways Program
Posted by West Linn-Wilsonville on 9/9/2019 4:00:00 PM
The West Linn-Wilsonville Internship Pathways Program launched this summer, connecting WLWV high school students to career-based learning opportunities in the local community. One such work-based opportunity came through the Clackamas River Basin, whose collaboration has allowed two students to gain first-hand environmental science experience this summer.
West Linn High School students Gavin Harvey and Camden Saks spent their summer working in different areas of the Clackamas River Basin. Working alongside CRBC’s Suzi Cloutier, Gavin and Camden regularly visited water sites to learn about the Clackamas River Basin Council’s role in preserving the watershed for future generations. There, the pair would test samples from various sites on the Willamette River, record observations of surrounding wildlife, and help staff with regular reports. [READ THE FULL STORY]
Welcome to the West Linn-Wilsonville School District!
Our incredible students, talented staff, supportive and dedicated community make this a tremendous place in which to learn and lead.
Our school district guides us with a compelling vision question, “How do we create learning communities for the greatest thinkers and most thoughtful people…for the world?”
This question challenges us to continually hone our practices and skills in creating exceptional learning environments for our students. The question also challenges us to implement practices that help our students grow as thoughtful citizens and compassionate humanitarians. Together, the vision question prompts us to continually engage our students’ minds and hearts. As the late poet, Maya Angelou declares, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
We pledge to do our best when working with the children entrusted in our care. This year holds great promise, great opportunities and great accomplishments for each of them.
