Additional make up days, if needed, will be scheduled the week of June 16-20. MHS Graduation remains as scheduled, June 6, 2014.
March local food item in school lunch is cabbage from Hilltop Produce Farms in Troutdale. Hilltop Produce Farm is a family, fourth generation, century farm. They also grow a full variety of root vegetables including turnip and parsnips. The majority of the crops grown here stay in Oregon although they do ship about 10% elsewhere.
