Welcome to the first Spartan Update of our 2021-2022 School Year!

For those families who are new to us…first of all, WELCOME! We’re so happy to have you with us at Spencer Butte! The Spartan Update is a weekly email sent out to parents/families every Friday afternoon with pertinent information and news about upcoming Spencer Butte events.


We want to thank our Spencer Butte Community for your continued patience as we navigate through the final details for the start of the 2021-2022 school year. In order to make sure all your questions are answered, please watch for more emails from us as we will be updating families as more specific information is made available to us. We are so excited to see our students in just a few short weeks!


We are still working on student class schedules and hope to have them finalized by the middle of next week. Schedules will be given to all students on the first days of school.


You can use this online service to find out where your nearest bus stops are located and whether your student is eligible for bus transportation. Enter your address and your student’s grade level, then click on the school name to see the bus stop or stops near your home.

**Please check within one week of scheduled in-person learning for the most up to date routing information**


If your student takes any medication while at school, a medication form must be filled out each school year.

Remember that medication must be in the container in which it was purchased, and labeled properly with instructions from the pharmacy. Please contact Salena Bowen to make arrangements for dropping off medication with the medication form, at or 541-790-8300.

The Medication Authorization Form is attached. If at all possible please print and fill out this form before bringing in the medication, otherwise we have paper copies available.


In order to best provide for your student’s health and safety this coming school year, if your student has a medical condition, please follow this link to fill out the appropriate assessment form for your student.

If your student has had a medical condition in the past that is no longer an issue, please indicate that on the form.

Paper copies of these forms are also available in the office.


We will be distributing iPads to students on Monday, September 13th during the school day. If your student kept their iPad over the summer, please make sure they bring it to school, fully charged, starting on Monday.


If your student has an upcoming medical appointment and they are also interested in joining Track this year, we have attached the Sports Physical Exam Form you can bring with you in preparation for the season.


If you would like your student to have an LTD TouchPass, please complete the Google Form listed below. The LTD TouchPass will allow your student to ride LTD Busses, FREE, until September 30, 2021. Please complete the Google Form for each child that you have attending Spencer Butte, which you would like to have issued a TouchPass. Questions? Email Salena Bowen:
