    Sellwood Principal’s Newsletter – May 6, 2022

    Greetings Sellwood Community,

    When we have a lot of rainy weather, I like to remind myself that rain is what makes the PNW so beautiful, especially when it comes to our lovely gardens!  You may have heard about the Sellwood Garden Tour coming up on May 22, sponsored by the PTA.  Find the details about the garden tour in the PTA section below, and also read the article in the Oregonian.  The garden tour is a great way to spend a lovely day outdoors, get ideas for your own garden, and support Sellwood Middle School at the same time.

    Hope to see you there!

    Sellwood Principal’s Newsletter – April 29, 2022

    Greetings Sellwood Community,

    It has been a while since I have written about COVID in this portion of the newsletter, but as you may have noted in the news, Multnomah County, and many other parts of the state and country are experiencing an increase in COVID cases.  The current COVID bump is not expected to be even close to the huge surge we lived through in January, but we should all be vigilant and alert to potential COVID symptoms in ourselves and children.  The primary symptoms of COVID are still officially listed as fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste and smell.  However, every single person I know who has had Omicron has experienced sore throat as the first symptom along with headache, tiredness, a runny nose, with a cough developing later. It is very difficult to distinguish from the common cold.  To make things more confusing, the common cold is also circulating in our community.  Please play it safe.  If your child has symptoms, please keep them home.  Also, in the first few days of a COVID infection, it is not unusual for at-home rapid tests to show false negatives when there is not enough viral load to show positive.  If you really suspect COVID and the rapid test is negative, a PCR test is very sensitive and can detect the smallest amount of the virus.  Let the school  know if your child tests positive. Please help us to curtail the spread.

    This Oregon spring has been one of the rainiest on record, but Sunday is looking like a great day to get outside. 

    I hope you enjoy the weekend, whatever you decide to do!

    Greetings Sellwood Community,

    This week has been a wild ride, with an unexpected snow day on Monday, followed by hail, thunderstorms, and very unlike spring weather.  At least the days are getting longer, and we are definitely in the fourth quarter of the school year, even though it may not feel like it!

    Enjoy the weekend!
