    Traffic Pattern Guidance 

    For everyone new to the school and as a reminder for everyone, here are some traffic tips for drop off and pick up. The front of the school on Everett St. is used for quick drop-offs but it can be very congested.

    • Always treat Everett St. as a one-way traveling east, from 24th Ave. to 28th Ave. 

    • Travel carefully and watch for pedestrians crossing on 24th and at the crosswalk on 26th Ave. 

    • Do not block driveways or the park in front of the fire hydrant in front of the school. 

    • Students should exit on the curb/passenger side if at all possible. 

    • Please do not park for extended periods in front of the school or run your engine idling if you are sitting and waiting. 

    • Don't park too close to the driveway from the parking lot west of the school because short school buses need to exit. 

    • It is possible to enter the back parking lot from 24th at Davis or find a place to drop off a block or two away from the building and have students walk the remaining distance. 

    • Parking in the neighborhood is very limited. 

    • Make a plan in advance for where you will meet kids after school. You might want to park in the neighborhood and park then walk to meet them on the sidewalk in front until you get things figured out. 

    • We encourage carpooling, public transportation, and walking/biking/scooter riding when possible. We will be working with PBOT on improvements to our carpooling network and traffic mapping so stay tuned. 
  • Need a Chromebook?

    If you need a PPS Chromebook for your student or an internet hotspot, please fill out this form. We prefer that students use a PPS-issued device.

    We are trying to measure the need and make a plan for the distribution of devices. If you have one from last year, plan for your student to bring it to school, charged and ready to go, every day. 


  • Tech Tips from our Assistant Principal Wilson

    Here are a couple of useful how-to videos for you to learn how to access and navigate ParentVue and Canvas, which are both useful throughout the school year. 

    ParentVue (& StudentVue shows the same information but is the student version) is where you can see schedules when they are posted, final grades, attendance, and where you update your personal information each year. Please complete the YEARLY VERIFICATION so we have current emergency contacts, phone numbers, and your correct address. If you need an activation key to start your account or you get locked out, contact sbryan@pps.net in the office.

    Canvas is the learning management system teachers use for each class period to post calendars, assignments & grading, and course content. Parents and guardians can become an "observer" on Canvas to monitor progress if desired. Once courses are published, students will have access to all of their classes on Canvas. You must get the code to join from the student's page.
