    November 8, 2021 - HSD asks that all families review and update student and contact information yearly by logging into your ParentVUE account, opening the Online Registration module, and then selecting the 2021-22 Verification option. Having accurate parent/guardian contact information is critical for communicating school and district news, as well as attendance and emergency notifications. 

    Detailed instructions and a video for how to update information can be found on our website. If you do not have a ParentVUE account or have difficulty completing the process for any reason, please request assistance from the office staff at your child’s school.

    Recordatorio sobre la verificación en línea
    HSD solicita que todas las familias revisen y actualicen anualmente la información de su(s) estudiante(s) y la información de contacto iniciando sesión en su cuenta de ParentVUE, accediendo al módulo de registro en línea, y seleccionando la opción de verificación para el periodo 2021-22. Contar con la información de contacto correcta de los padres/tutores legales es fundamental para comunicarle las noticias de la escuela y el Distrito, así como notificaciones sobre la asistencia y emergencias. 

    En nuestro sitio web puede encontrar instrucciones detalladas y un video sobre cómo actualizar la información. Si no tiene una cuenta de ParentVUE o tiene dificultades para completar el proceso por cualquier motivo, por favor, solicite ayuda al personal de la oficina de la escuela de su estudiante.

     Hello Orenco Families!

    I hope you have a great conference with your teacher(s) this next week as well as having a few days to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. We have not had a full 5 days off for the break in a long time, so I'm interested in hearing your feedback on how it went. I'm proud of our teachers and staff who show up each day and work so hard in this challenging time to make lessons relevant, engaging, and purposeful. I am also very proud of our students who come to school so eager to learn and be the best Orcas they can be. It is a joy to work and laugh with them daily!

    In service to you,

    Hello Parents, Here is a link to our current Enrollment steps and Online Registration 

    Under normal circumstances, you would begin the enrollment process by visiting your “home school” during office hours. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our schools are currently closed and we are implementing a distance learning model of instruction until schools reopen. Once the enrollment process is completed, your student(s) will be able to participate in the district's distance learning model of instruction.

    If you are unable to complete the online enrollment please download and complete the paper Enrollment form — English Enrollment Form / Spanish Enrollment Form.  Mail the completed paper form to 7050 NE Birch St, Hillsboro, OR 97124. If you have any questions please email our school's secretary Lucy Smith at smithlu@hsd.k12.or.us 


    Hola padres, aquí está el enlace a nuestros pasos actuales de inscripción y registro en línea

Una vez que se complete el proceso de inscripción, su (s) estudiante (s) podrán participar en el modelo de enseñanza a distancia del distrito.

Principal's Message

  • Allison Combs Dear Orenco Families,

    Being the principal of Orenco Elementary School is a tremendous honor and is the best job in the world. Each day I am thrilled to work with such a caring and dedicated staff and families. I am excited to bring my skills as an educational leader to your son’s/daughter’s school and to collaborate with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

    Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Orenco by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.  We will focus on character education initiatives through Positive Behavior Intervention Support, Capturing Kids Hearts, fostering a nurturing safe environment for children, use of data to inform instruction, consistent implementation of newly adopted English Language Arts to increase students’ achievement, by providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.

    The diverse student population at Orenco Elementary School provides everyone with an awareness and appreciation for all cultures. The Orenco staff are passionate, dedicated educators who set high standards of achievement so our young scholars can be successful. We are determined to drive rigorous engagement in literacy, writing, math, and science, and provide individualized opportunities for student growth. To ensure this happens, we collaborate regularly around student learning, challenge one another, and seek to continuously improve in teaching and learning. We set high expectations for ourselves and our young scholars, and work together in the process of achieving those expectations.

    Thank you for trusting us with the education and caring development of your child. If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call. Family support is a critical link to student achievement. We want to hear from you!

    In partnership,

    Allison Combs
