Welcome to IHS!

School Delays & Closures Information

With the arrival of winter weather, we would like to remind parents/families about our district policy. If school is delayed or closed, the information is posted by 6:00 AM on:

  • District Website
  • District Facebook page
  • Mobile App
  • Automated calling system
  • Regional media outlets (newspaper online, radio, tv stations)

The location with the most accurate information to confirm a delay/closure is the district website. On occasion, media inaccurately reports school delay/closure information. If schools must close early, notification is given using the same method.

If no notice is posted, school is running on regular schedule. If you have questions about the policy, please call the District Office or your child’s school.

Snow Day Update

      When the Morrow County School District established its 2016-17 school year calendar, administrators built in extra days to allow for potential snow days. Due to extreme inclement weather conditions this winter, schools in Boardman and Irrigon have been closed for 7 days and Heppner schools were closed for 5 days. To compensate for this lost instructional time for students, the MCSD will now be implementing the following adjustments to the 2016-17 calendar: Boardman and Irrigon Schools:
• Boardman and Irrigon schools will make up four of the missed student contact days due to inclement weather closures.
• April 7, 14, 28, and May 12 are now designated as “Snow/Inclement Weather” make-up days for Boardman and Irrigon Schools.
• In the event of another snow day; the dates listed above will not change.

Juniors-

Junior Girls – 2017 Girls State applications are now available. Girls State is a leadership program sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary that is designed to increase awareness and knowledge of governmental processes, while educating attendees about the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of citizenship. Junior girls from around the state of Oregon will be in attendance. Girls State will be held at Willamette University, June 11th – 17th. See Mr. Royer for application and more information.

New System for Reporting School Safety Concerns

The Morrow County School District has a new system, called SafeOregon, for reporting school safety threats. SafeOregon is a program created for Oregon students, parents, school staff, and community members to report and respond to student safety threats. Tips can be submitted through email, phone call or text, mobile app or the web portal. Tips are confidential and can be made anonymously.

Tips may include bullying, violence, threat of violence, harassment, intimidation, cyber bullying, self-harm, etc.

When a tip is reported, it is handled by specially trained technicians who are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for all of Oregon’s public schools Pre-Kindergarten through 12th Grade. The Oregon State Police provides this service through a contracted vendor.

SafeOregon is made possible through Oregon HB 4075 as a result of recommendations from the Oregon Task Force on School Safety.

The Morrow County School District is committed to student safety and realizes that when students feel safe in their schools, learning is more effective.

We encourage you to find out more about SafeOregon by visiting safeoregon.com.
