Principal's Message

March 27, 2020

Dear Five Oaks and Rachel Carson Families,

We hope that everyone is doing well through this time of uncertainty.  I know that you have received several messages from Beaverton School District Administration.  These communications are intended to keep our community updated.  It is important to read these messages due to the fluid nature of the situation at hand. It is certainly very challenging and we are doing our very best to keep communication coming to you so you have the most up to date information.

We also highly value staying connected with our families.  We have been asked to have all communication come from our Central Office and we were given permission as of today to reach out to families.  I have received numerous texts from staff telling me how much they miss their students and asking if we will be coming back to school on April 28th.  I honestly don't know.  I am taking direction from the district and they, in turn, are receiving detailed information from Governor Brown.  

Our staff will have a virtual staff meeting on Tuesday, March 31. After this meeting, staff will work on remote learning plans for the remainder of the week.Teachers will then communicate with students about the Remote Learning Plan for our Phase 2.  Please direct any general questions to me at  If I don't know the answer, which is highly likely, I will find out and get back to you as soon as possible.

In the meantime, be safe and take care of yourselves.  We miss you.  We will get through this together.

Shirley Brock

Five Oaks & Rachel Carson Middle School Principal
