The Oregon Health Plan is now open to more children and teens, regardless of immigration status. OHP is free health coverage for Oregonians who meet income and other criteria. It covers many health care services such as check-ups, tooth fillings, glasses and prescriptions. It also covers labs, x-rays and hospital care. It even pays for rides to and from the doctor’s office. Apply to see if you qualify. Help is free.
Call the Access Team at Community Health Centers of Lane County at 541-682-3585 for more information. They are trained and certified by OHP to answer your questions and help your family apply for free. OHP is now for me!
School attendance matters! There are only a few reasons that are acceptable for “Excused Absence”:
Death in the Family
Medical Appointment (please bring a note from Doctor)
Reasons that are considered “unexcused” include haircuts, birthdays or other family celebrations, shopping or errands, and yes, also vacations.

SUMMER ACADEMY TO INSPIRE LEARNING
What’s SAIL all about?
SAIL is an innovative pipeline program that helps local eighth
through twelfth graders prepare for college.
SAIL offers free one-week summer camps, where students
learn about various subjects from distinguished University
of Oregon faculty members through fun social and interactive
activities. Each summer, returning students choose a new
academic subject. SAIL camps include sessions on the
college admissions process, scholarship availability, and
the financial aid process.
During the school year, SAIL offers mentoring—administered
by UO college students—to eligible students in local high
schools who are navigating the college admissions process.
