Amity Schools are closed today

Due to concerns about snowfall interfering with being able to get kids home safely, we will be closed Thursday, December 8th.

Welcome to Amity School District

We are a rural school district located in Amity, Oregon. Our local economy is based on varied agricultural enterprises which include vineyards, grain and grass seed farming, and dairies. Of course there are many businesses which exist mainly to support those industries as well. Our district is large enough to offer a wide selection of academic courses and yet small enough that kids and parents feel important and have access to teachers and administrators.

Lead testing results

We received back the lead testing results from Alexin Laboratories today, October 25th.
 
In the elementary school we have two classroom faucets and two classroom drinking fountains that show elevated lead levels.  We also have several sinks that have elevated levels but none of these are intended for drinking or food prep.
 
We are shutting off all fixtures with elevated levels until we can set up a new sampling time.  The plan is to turn them back on, flush them thoroughly and then shut them off for 72 hours, followed by a resampling.  Some of these fixtures haven't had any significant use in months and so we want to make sure we check them properly a second time. We did not flush any fixtures prior to the first sampling.  
 
Any fixtures that continue to show elevated lead levels after a second testing will be replaced and resampled.  Any that continue to show elevated levels at that point will require more significant plumbing solutions.
 
The middle and high schools showed no amounts of lead at all.  That is not a surprise given when plumbing was done in those buildings.
 
If you have any questions please call Superintendent Jeff Clark at 503-835-2171.
