  • Immunization Rates

    Immunization Exemption Information

    The State of Oregon requires schools to notify parents of their immunization rates for each required vaccine. These rates will be posted on our school’s website, in our school office, and sent home to parents. The rates attached are the exemption rates as of the February exclusion date - which is always the third Wednesday of that month. Schools are required to publish this information twice each school year. These rates will be posted within thirty days of the February exclusion date. The same information will be shared again during the first month of school next school year. Again, these rates are collected and tallied each February.


    Información Actualizada sobre la Exención de Inmunizaciones

    El estado de Oregón requiere que las escuelas notifiquen a los padres las tasas de vacunación para cada vacuna requerida. Estas tasas se publicarán en el sitio web de nuestra escuela, en la oficina de nuestra escuela y se enviarán a los padres. Las tasas adjuntas son las tasas de exención a partir de la fecha de exclusión de febrero, que es siempre el tercer miércoles de ese mes. Las escuelas deben publicar esta información dos veces cada año escolar. Estas tasas se publicarán dentro de los treinta días a partir de la fecha de exclusión de febrero. La misma información se compartirá nuevamente durante el primer mes de clases el próximo año escolar. Una vez más, estas tasas se obtienen y se contabilizan cada mes de febrero.

Principal's Message



Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Ramirez

Friday, August 7, 2020


Dear Hollydale Heroes:  

This spring and summer have brought unique and life-altering challenges as we have continued to learn and adjust to the impacts of COVID-19, both personally and professionally.  As the new principal of Hollydale Elementary School, I feel fortunate and grateful to be joining the new Hollydale community which is committed to providing all students with the best education possible. I assure you that I approach this year with optimism, energy, and a commitment to apply what was learned last spring to work together and continue to increase our support for our school community and most importantly, for our students. 

The Gresham-Barlow School District website contains helpful information regarding back to school and this information is updated as new mandates and requirements become known. This will be your most current and easily accessible source of information. Students will virtually return to school on September 14 and will participate in comprehensive distance learning through mid-October. At that point, using the re-opening metrics and guidelines provided by the State of Oregon, the district will re-evaluate the situation and provide additional information to families. You can expect to receive a weekly school newsletter which will also highlight this information. 

While this is certainly an unconventional way to begin a school year, there is an opportunity to mold some of our current systems into systems that better support our students, families, and community. I believe that working with families to build these systems is essential. Your voice will be especially important this year as we work together to think creatively and find new ways to engage, inspire, and empower each student in our community.  The Hollydale parent group and Site Council are additional opportunities for your voice to be heard. If you are interested in either of these opportunities, please contact me at ramirez26@gresham.k12.or.us

If you have any questions or would like to connect with me, please do not hesitate to reach out to me via email or, once the school office is open, through the office. It is an honor to be a member of the Hollydale community and I look forward to working with each of your children.

Estimados héroes de Hollydale:

Esta primavera y verano han traído obstáculos y retos únicos que han cambiado nuestras vidas mientras que continuamos aprendiendo y ajustándonos a los impactos de COVID-19, tanto personal como profesionalmente. Como nuevo directora de la Escuela Primaria Hollydale, me siento afortunada y agradecida de unirme a la nueva comunidad de Hollydale, que está comprometida a brindar a todos los estudiantes la mejor educación posible. Les aseguro que comenzaré este año con optimismo, energía y un compromiso de aplicar lo que aprendimos la primavera pasada para trabajar juntos y continuar aumentando nuestro apoyo a nuestra comunidad escolar y, lo más importante, a nuestros estudiantes.

El sitio web del Distrito Escolar de Gresham-Barlow contiene información útil sobre el regreso a clases y esta información se actualiza a medida que se conozcan los nuevos mandatos y requisitos. Esta será su fuente de información más curente y de fácil acceso. Los estudiantes regresarán virtualmente a la escuela el 14 de septiembre y participarán en un aprendizaje comprensible de distancia larga hasta mediados de octubre. A ese punto, el distrito volverá a evaluar la situación utilizando las medidas y guías proporcionadas por el estado de Oregon, sobre el próximo paso de abrir nuestras escuelas. Durante este tiempo información adicional va hacer proveída a las familias, empezando en septiembre las familias recibirán un boletín semanal con más información importante sobre los cambios que siguieron durante el año escolar. 

Aunque esta situación es un poco diferente para comenzar un año escolar, existe la oportunidad de adaptar y cambiar algunos de nuestros sistemas actuales para apoyar mejor a nuestros estudiantes, familias y comunidad. Creo que trabajar con las familias para construir estos sistemas es esencial. Su voz será especialmente importante este año a medida que trabajemos juntos para pensar creativamente y encontrar nuevas formas de involucrar, inspirar y capacitar a cada estudiante en nuestra comunidad. El grupo de padres de Hollydale y el Consejo del Sitio son oportunidades adicionales para que su voz sea escuchada. Si está interesado/a en cualquiera de estas oportunidades, comuníquese conmigo en ramirez26@gresham.k12.or.us

Si tiene alguna pregunta o desea comunicarse conmigo, no dude en comunicarse conmigo por correo electrónico o, una vez que la oficina de la escuela esté abierta, a través de la oficina. Es un honor ser parte de la comunidad de Hollydale y espero trabajar con cada uno de sus hijos.
