As part of our sustainability effort and with the specific goal of decreasing traffic, the school has designated October 8 – 11 as Empty the Lot Week. We encourage you to try a different way of getting to campus on this four-day school week.
- Help reduce the number of vehicles on Barnes Road and entering campus during peak drop-off and pick-up times
- Barnes Road rush hour traffic exceeds capacity. Washington County and Metro studies indicate that traffic congestion will continue to increase in coming years
How can you help?
- Arrive on campus before 7:45 a.m. for drop-off
- Arrive on campus after 3:35 p.m. for pick-up
- Use the Catlin Gabel student bus service (NO COST to ride October 8 –11. Sign-up required.
- Carpool (form lasting bonds with your neighbors)
- Bike, walk, take TriMet
The community gathered on a beautiful September morning to dedicate the Tucker Garden in honor of woodshop teacher Tom Tucker ’66. Every corner of the campus has been touched by Tom’s creativity and appreciation for craftsmanship. The garden is one more thing of beauty that could not have happened without Tom.
