EUGENE, Ore. -- While students still have a few days left of summer break, teachers and school staff are already back on the job.

Gustavo Balderas, superintendent of Eugene School District 4J, welcomed them back at South Eugene High School.

The idea was to get staff together to share information and for a little inspiration.

Teachers told KEZI 9 News they’re excited to get going.

“Music and band and choir and theatrical stuff,” said Karen Ramirez, vice principal at Kennedy Middle School. "So that’s what I’m really excited about ... getting all those opportunities for students to do some fun things."
