Mailing Letters to Your Child at Outdoor School
Send letters to your child at the address of the site he or she is attending. Addresses are on the Sites & Photos page of this website.
Please do not send “care packages” with food or candy to children at Outdoor School.
Please be cautious in the word choice in your letters. Sharing your feelings of sadness at their absence can spur homesickness in your child. Instead, focus on how much you are looking forward to hearing about their week at Outdoor School when they get home.
Mail is distributed daily to students, but may take several days to reach the Outdoor School site from Portland, so please plan ahead. It is recommended that you mail the letter to your child by the Friday before your child attends Outdoor school, especially if your child will be attending one of our Monday-to-Wednesday programs.
Letters sent to our main office in Hillsboro probably won't make it to your child when he or she is at Outdoor School.
