The Groves appreciate our volunteers! If you (or our valued grandparents & community members!) have the opportunity to volunteer, even for one fieldtrip, you must have a background check. Please go to the GAPS website where you will find the Volunteer Criminal Background check under the “Parents” tab. Your background check is good for a two year period, and we will try to let you know when your background check is about to expire.
Medications at School
If your child requires medication at school (prescribed or over the counter) please go to Albany.k12.or.us/parents, click administrative rules, put “medications” in the search box to find the form (or pick one up at school). Medications cannot be dispensed without this form—and according to the state, cough drops are medication.
The District lunch program, MealTime is an automated lunch program. There is an online option to check on your child’s balance & eating habits : ) Call Marla at Fir Grove, 541.967.4570, or Pat at Oak Grove, 541.967.4596, for more info. And, watch your email for notices. MealTime does charge for online deposits—but not to check balances.
Our School District’s Check Policy: For a check to be an acceptable form of payment it must include your current, full and accurate name, address, telephone number, driver’s license number and state. When paying by check you authorize the recovery of unpaid checks and a $25.00 returned check fee by means of electronic re-presentment or by paper draft.
