McKenzie Schools

Our girls volleyball finished the regular season in second place and will enter the MWL tournament at Junction City High School as the #2
seed with the hopes of gaining the #1 seed from the MWL to the OSAA state championships. I will update the times of Saturdays tournament on
by Wednesday as they become official
The football team stayed with the Mohawk Indians through the 3rd quarter before the Indians pulled away with the win.
I hope you all can make it out to Junction City this weekend to cheer on our girls as they fight for a State Playoff berth.

Lane Blood CenterIt’s been five years since residents of the Upper McKenzie have been able to donate blood at an area event and that’s about to change.  Thanks to a renewed community spirit and a school administration intent on playing an important part in that renewal, McKenzie Schools will host a Blood  Drive on Wednesday, October 22nd,  from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

FINN ROCK: The McKenzie School Board got a dose of sticker shock last Wednesday when a bid for limiting access at key entry doors arrived with a $25,000 price tag. Jason Davis, the district’s technology coordinator, has been exploring options to make the campus safer for students. He outlined a strategy for installing magnetic locks and cameras at building entrances. The locations included the front doors of the high school and administration buildings as well as two more at the elementary school.
