Please mark your calendar as a school day on Monday, February 20, 2017.  This date was originally scheduled as a holiday but in an effort to make up one of our snow days we are adjusting our calendar. 


Please Note:  During these winter months we may see more inclement weather.  If students miss more school days we may have to extend the school calendar in June.



Each year the district is required to notify the public of our compliance with Division 22 Assurances.  The information contained in this article, the annual report, helps to fulfill the standards for Public Elementary and Secondary Schools as set forth in OAR Chapter 581, Division 22.



By law, Oregon school districts must notify parents about annual state testing at least thirty days before testing begins. Testing will begin in Cascade in February 2017. A copy of the 30-day notice and opt-out form can be picked up in any school office starting on January 6, 2017. For more information about state testing, please visit the Oregon Department of Education website:

TOOTH TAXI COMING SOON to your elementary school!

Forms will be sent home with your elementary student in the next couple of days.  Please return them by November 30, 2016.  Every student who returns the paperwork packet will receive an oral screening and will get to take home a FREE ORAL HYGIENE KIT!

What is the Tooth Taxi?

A dental van that visits school districts throughout Oregon providing free dental care to students grades K-12.  The Tooth Taxi is the project of the Dental Foundation of Oregon (DFO), in partnership with OEA Choice Trust and ODS, whose mission is “Improving oral health for Oregon’s children.”

Which students can receive the treatment?

The Tooth Taxi gives treatment priority to children that have no dental insurance, children that have never been to the dentist, or children with an emergent need. 

What type of treatment does Tooth Taxi provide?

Basic dental care, including exams, cleanings, sealants, restorations and extractions.

What is the cost for treatment?

The costs associated with the Tooth Taxi will be covered by the generous contributions from donors.  There is no cost to the parents or school district.  If parents have private insurance, the Tooth Taxi will bill for services rendered with no cost to the family; however, it will reflect in future benefits.

What if I have questions?

Please visit under “Tooth Taxi Adventures”.

Oregon English Language Learner Report

Cascade School District is required to report this information to the public each year.  Please see the link below to review financial information for English language learner programs and the objectives and needs of students eligible for and enrolled in an English language learner program. The report provides information on the demographics of students in English language learner programs in each school district. In addition, this report provides a tool that makes data on English language learners accessible to researchers, media, students, and parents.
