Air Quality Information

Wildfire smoke in our area is impacting our students’ outdoor activities. We are closely monitoring air quality and are in regular contact with local agencies during this wildfire season to help guide our decision making around school-sponsored student activities taking place outside. Creswell School District staff are monitoring the Air Quality Index data gathered and posted by Lane Regional Air Protection Agency (LRAPA) and doing regular visual inspections of outside air quality to determine outdoor activity levels for students, per the Oregon Health Authority’s Public Health Guidance for School Outdoor Activities During Wildfire Events.

Once school begins, decisions about outdoor activities, including sports, recess and PE will be made throughout the day, using the OHA guidelines mentioned above.

Our athletic directors, coaches, and support staff are communicating with families and students participating in OSAA activities regarding these health guidelines. School staff will notify families if any changes are made to games or practice times and schedules. Decisions regarding games will be made daily, as necessary.

A Bulldog Summer

What did you do over the summer break?

Written by CHS Teacher Kori Wanner

From June 25 through July 4, eight Creswell High School students and their Spanish teacher traveled around Costa Rica experiencing some of the amazing nature and adventure activities it has to offer. Recently graduated seniors Carly Ayer, Josh Lezcano, Logan Kenworthy, Shahalie Evans, and Reggie Sizemore, incoming senior Maddy Marrs, and former CHS students Haley and Blaine Rodolf all accompanied Kori Wanner for the 10-day trip.

The trip started and ended in Costa Rica’s capital San Jose where we explored some markets and a coffee plantation. From there we traveled to La Fortuna near the Arenal Volcano where we kayaked on Arenal Lake, hiked in a thunderstorm near the volcano, climbed 500 steps down and up near La Fortuna Waterfall, and relaxed in natural hot springs. Next we traveled to Monteverde where we hiked through the cloud forest, went horseback riding with distant views of the Pacific Ocean, and zip lined on over 4km of cable. Then we went down to the Pacific Coast where we looked for crocodiles in a river and saw a mama sloth and her baby while riding an aerial tram. We also spent a day playing on the beach in Manuel Antonio National Park where we saw more sloths as well as monkeys, raccoons, and deer. Then back to San Jose and back home.

This trip was filled with so many incredible experiences. Everyone’s favorites were the day at the beach, zip lining, horseback riding, and of course meeting American and Costa Rican celebrities! We also loved the huge thunder and lightning storms we experienced in the mountains. As a teacher, I was very proud that all my students spoke in Spanish with Costa Ricans we met during our travels. It was definitely a trip that none of us will forget!
