Information for Parents about School Delays/ Closures

With the arrival of winter weather, we would like to remind parents/families about our district policy. If school is delayed or closed, the information is posted by 6:00 AM on:

  • District Website
  • District Facebook page
  • Automated calling system
  • Regional media outlets (newspaper online, radio, Portland & Tri-Cities tv stations)

If no notice is posted, school is running on regular schedule.

The location with the most accurate information to confirm a delay/closure is on the district website. On occasion, media inaccurately reports school delay/closure information.

If schools must close early, notification is given using the same method.

If you have questions about the delay/closure policy, please call the District Office or your child’s school.

Thank you.

Stars for Payton

Athena-Weston welcomed home elementary student, Payton Throne, with a community dinner, raising $2686.00. The school was covered in stars sharing messages of care and hope created by district students and staff. Additionally, elementary students hosted a pajama day that raised $342.00 and the High School students sponsored a penny drive that raised over $400.00.

Welcome Back

Dear Parents,

It is with great honor and pleasure that I begin this school year as the new superintendent for Athena-Weston Schools. It is my professional commitment to partner with community members, staff, parents, and students to develop a safe and welcoming school environment.  I maintain an open door policy and am excited to become a partner in the Athena-Weston school community.

School begins on August 25 and we will be welcoming an estimated 567 students through the doors of our three buildings; Athena Elementary (grades K-3), Weston Middle School (grades 4-8) and Weston McEwen High School (grades 9-12).

As we begin this academic year, I invite parents, staff and students to ponder the following question:

What do I hope for this school year? (for myself, my students, my children)

Here are some of my hopes...

I hope that every student and staff member is excited to come to school each day.
I hope that every student discovers that they belong and are cared for.

I hope that every family understands how valued they are as our partners.
I hope that I end each day having made a difference in the life of a child.

We thank you for sharing your children with us and welcome you as we celebrate and work together for a successful school year!

Yours for Kids,
Laure Quaresma, Superintendent
