  • 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:

Mrs. James

Welcome to Hollydale!

Our goal is to “Create a culture of rigor, achievement, and celebration in reading, writing, and math.”

We are fortunate to be a part of the Right Brain Initiative again this year, which brings artists in residence to each and every classroom. Our staff will be looking at more ways to integrate art into their instruction to bring learning to life for all kids. Our teachers will be working closely in grade level teams and using student data to plan instruction around the national Common Core Standards. This will allow students the chance to grow in their abilities at an individualized level. As part of that effort, we expect families to support their students by staying in communication with the school and by having all students at school on time and ready to learn each day.

We continue to strive to provide a safe, positive, and rigorous learning environment for all students. We will teach students the expected behaviors across the school environment and give lots of positive reinforcement for students that are being Safe, Respectful and Responsible. This year we will be looking at more ways to involve families and the community at Hollydale. We welcome you into our school and classrooms! If you have a question, concern, or just want to become more involved in our school, please call me at 503-661-6226.

Working together we can make a difference in the lives of our children.
