We are taking some extra time to ensure that students receive accurate schedules, therefore, we have decided to hand them out to students on their first day of school.
The First Day of School for 6th graders is Monday, August 29 -- only 6th graders will attend on this day. The 6th grade WEB orientation and transition program is designed to both welcome and support sixth graders in their first year of middle school. 6th graders will be engaged in a variety of activities all morning, and so schedules will be distributed to 6th graders during lunch.
The First Day of school for 7th and 8th graders is Tuesday, August 30. Upon arrival, students may pick up Class Schedules:
First Day of School for 6th Graders only - WEB Orientation Day: Monday, August 29
First Day of School for 7th & 8th Graders, 6th Graders also attend - All Students: Tuesday, August 30
No School: Monday, September 5 in observance of Labor Day

Dear Portland Public Schools Families and Staff,
Welcome to the first day of the 2016-17 school year!
It is wonderful to see our community come together to help get ready for our students every year. Thank you to all the volunteers who participated in Project Community Care day on Saturday.
Dear Roosevelt High School Families and Community,
We have been hard at work all summer preparing for the new school year. The facilities look beautiful and are ready for our students.
