Dear Twin Oaks Families,

Take the family to the Get Air Trampoline Park at 4211 W. 11th Avenue, Eugene, between 5pm-10pm. Get Air will donate 20% of all jump costs. There is no school on Friday so you can stay out as late as you want. Have fun!
NO SCHOOL DAYS: There is no school for students on Friday, May 3rd and Wednesday, May 8th. Friday, May 3rd has been a planned no school day as indicated on the 2018-2019 Elementary School Calendar. It is a Grading/Transition Day for staff.
Eugene 4J School District schools will be closed on May 8th due to a planned “Day of Action”. There is clear indications that teacher absences and substitute shortages will exceed the school district’s ability to provide safe and adequate supervision for our students, therefore it has been determined that it is necessary to cancel the school day on May 8.
