Welcome to Windy River Elementary

Windy River Elementary School is located in Boardman, Oregon and part of the Morrow County School District. We are 164 miles east of Portland Oregon on Interstate 84. The school sits a short distance off the historic Columbia River and a few miles north of the historic Oregon Trail. Windy River opened its doors for the first time in September of 2003 and housed fifth and sixth grade students. We now serve grades fourth, fifth and sixth grade classes. Our enrollment is 250 students with an average classroom size of 25.

Windy River is dedicated to serving our students and meeting their individual needs.  Through our RTI and PLC process we are able to reach this goal.  Currently our school has adopted the Journey’s Reading curriculum and Engage NY Math curriculum to support our students.  We encourage students to take an active role in their learning process.  Our "Beyond the Bell" school program continues to develop.  The foundation of this platform is to help students reach their full potential.

 As a school community we realize the critical role that parents play in the development of their child.  Here at Windy River we strive to communicate and find ways that parents and staff collaborate and work together.

We look forward to serving you and helping your child “develop values, knowledge, skills and self-confidence to become life-long learners and responsible citizens”.

District Prepares for Inclement Weather this Winter

With winter quickly approaching we would like to share our inclement weather plan with you.  Our goal is to provide the safest possible learning opportunities for our students and staff.  Throughout the winter the district administration closely monitors weather and road conditions in our district and strives to inform families of changes in a timely manner.  Typically, we try to notify family’s the night before of a late start or closure, but there are times when the weather changes overnight and requires an early morning change in school plans. 

This year, Morrow County School District will continue a 3-hour delay for bad weather.  With this later start on inclement weather days it will allow us more time to evaluate the weather and road conditions before students and staff are traveling for school. Buses will run their normal routes, only 3 hours later.  On late start days’ schools will still have breakfast and lunch available to students. You can keep informed of school closures a variety of ways:

  • School Messenger
  • District and school websites
  • District and school Facebook pages
  • Local news and radio stations

Con el invierno acercándose rápidamente, nos gustaría compartir nuestro plan de clima inclemente con usted. Nuestro objetivo es proporcionar las oportunidades de aprendizaje más seguras posibles para nuestros estudiantes y personal. Durante todo el invierno, la administración del distrito supervisa de cerca el clima y las condiciones de las carreteras en nuestro distrito, y se esfuerza por informar a las familias de los cambios de manera oportuna. Por lo general, tratamos de notificar a las familias la noche antes de un comienzo o cierre tardío, pero a veces cambia el clima de la noche a la mañana y se requiere un cambio en los planes escolares temprano en la mañana.

Este año, el Distrito Escolar del Condado de Morrow continuará un retraso de 3 horas por el mal tiempo. Con este lapso de tiempo en los días del clima inclementes, nos permitirá tener más tiempo para evaluar el clima y las condiciones de las carreteras antes de que los estudiantes y el personal escolar viajen a la escuela. Los camiones escolares operarán sus rutas normales solo con 3 horas después.

En los días en que iniciemos tarde las clases en las escuelas, las cocinas escolares todavía tendrán/ proveerán el desayuno y el almuerzo a disposición de los estudiantes.

Ustedes pueden mantenerse informados por lo cierres escolares de varias maneras:

  • Mensajero de la escuela
  • Los sitios de las redes del Internet del distrito o escuelas
  • En las páginas de Facebook del distrito y escuelas
  • Noticias y estaciones de radio locales
