Middle and High School Reopening

To our David Douglas Secondary Families,

Many of our elementary students returned this week to in-person instruction as we began our hybrid attendance model that includes both in-person and Comprehensive Distance Learning students.

This hybrid model for our middle and high school students begins on Monday, April 19. Preparing our secondary staff and buildings for in-person instruction will cause changes to next week’s schedule. Your student’s school will be contacting you with details about both next week’s schedule and their hybrid instructional schedules.

Middle Schools –

On Monday and Tuesday, April 12-13, our middle school teachers and staff will be participating in staff meetings and training for COVID-19 safety and preparedness. Teachers will not be teaching live online, but your students will have asynchronous lessons to work on.

On Wednesday and Thursday, April 14-15, students do not have any school classes. Teachers will be preparing their classrooms and lessons for live, in-person instruction.

On Friday, April 16, students will have live, online synchronous learning in their advisory classes only.

On Monday, April 19, hybrid learning begins.

David Douglas High School –

On Monday and Tuesday, April 12-13, students will be doing online lessons through asynchronous learning while teachers and staff train, prep and meet regarding COVID-19 safety.

Wednesday through Friday, April 14-16, there is no school for students. Teachers and staff will continue preparing classrooms and the school on Wednesday and Thursday, while Friday is grading day.

Monday, April 19, hybrid in-person instruction begins.

Fir Ridge Campus –

On Monday and Tuesday, April 12-13, students will have a normal, online school day. On Wednesday, April 14, online learning will be asynchronous lessons rather than live synchronous learning. On Thursday and Friday, April 15-16, there will be no school for students. Teachers will be preparing their classrooms and lessons for live, in-person learning to begin on Monday, April 19.

Food Resources –

Our free student meal distributions and our food pantries for families will continue to be available next week and for the remainder of the school year. For details see this web page.

COVID-19 Safety Protocols –

When our hybrid model begins, all students, staff and others will be required to wear face coverings while in our buildings. Social distancing will be enforced, and strict cleaning and disinfecting protocols will be in place. There will be a careful health screening process that will begin each morning at home with you and your student.

To learn more and see a video about our safety protocols, go here.

Thank you,

Response to the Governor 3.5.21

Carradine Named DDHS Principal

Greg Carradine has been named the new Principal at David Douglas High School after 23 years of extensive leadership, serving the school community as a teacher, coach, division chair, coordinator, and administrator.
On July 1, Carradine becomes the 9th DDHS principal, the 7th to lead the entire campus (from 1962-66, two administrators shared the job) since the school was built in 1954.
“I’m looking forward to collaborating with David Douglas’ staff, students and families to create a positive learning environment so ALL students can develop essential skills for their post-secondary choices,” Carradine said.
He replaces John Bier, who will retire at the end of this school year after serving as Principal for the past 13 years. Greg will remain Assistant Principal for the remainder of the school year, while also engaging in transition activities in preparation for taking over as Principal.
Armed with a pair of associate degrees, Greg began his career working as a diesel technician. He was hired in 1997 as an instructor in Electronic, Automotive and AutoCad at David Douglas High School. He also served as assistant varsity football coach from 1997-2010 and was honored as Assistant Football Coach of the Year in 2004 and Teacher of the Year in 2007.  He chaired the Professional-Technical Department from 2005-10.
In 2010, he was hired as the DDHS Attendance Coordinator. The following year, Greg graduated from Marylhurst University with a BA in Communication.
He also previously served as the school summer school principal in 2011.
Greg graduated from Portland State in 2013 with a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership while earning his K-12 administrative license. That same year, he was named the DDHS Athletic Director and was twice been named the Mt. Hood Conference Athletic Director of the Year. He served as Athletic Director until 2019, when he was elevated to Assistant Principal.
“Greg is an amazing educational leader who time and time again has demonstrated his vision, his strong leadership, and most importantly his belief in students,” David Douglas Superintendent Ken Richardson said. “His commitment to student achievement, growth, our continued equity work, and passion for student and family engagement, are just some of his strengths. His genuine care for students and families and his true understanding of servant leadership is a model for us all.”
