Radon Test Results:
Dear Charlemagne families,
To continue to provide safe, healthy school facilities where students learn, grow and play, the district tested for radon in our school during the week of November 26, 2018. Radon is a naturally occurring gas that comes from the breakdown of uranium in soil and rock. Breathing high levels of radon over a long period of time can cause lung cancer. New state law requires that all districts in Oregon test school buildings for radon before January 1, 2021.
We’re pleased to report that the lab results show no elevated levels of radon in our building. However, one of the 28 air samples at the school was missing. That area will be retested this week. Please do not tamper with or move the test kit. We will inform you of the result of the missing air sample when it becomes available. Thank you for your patience.

The health and well-being of our students and staff are our top priority. Thank you for your cooperation.

In Eugene School District 4J, our school choice policy is that students may request to enroll in any 4J school. School choice requests are accepted in an order determined by lottery.
School choice in January: School choice tours and meetings will be scheduled in the month of January. To be included in the annual school choice lottery, 4J residents must apply between January 1 and January 31. This deadline changed last year to be earlier than in previous years. Non-district residents must apply for an interdistrict transfer between March 1 and March 31 to be included in the school placement lottery.
Who needs to apply: All students who wish to enroll in a school other than their neighborhood school must submit an application. This includes incoming siblings of current students, students who have moved out of our school neighborhood or the district and want to remain enrolled next year. Their enrollment is not automatic.
Who does not need to apply: If your student is already enrolled in our school on an in-district school choice transfer and has not moved out of the district, or is already enrolled on a multi-year “open enrollment” transfer, you do not need to reapply to continue attending our school next year.
If you have any friends or family members who are considering school choice, please invite them to come to learn more about our fantastic Charlemagne French immersion program at our school choice events in January:
Thursday, January 17 @ 5:30 pm
