Our office staff is available to answer questions, and you are welcome to schedule a phone, in person, or google meeting with me. Please call Suzanne Gleeson at (503) 916 - 5400 and let her know what's on your mind. She'll put you on my calendar.
Cindi Swingen, Principal
PPS wants to hear from you to weigh the impacts of requiring all students 12 years and older to be vaccinated against COVID-19. We heard that Saturday is a better day for Spanish-speaking families to attend this session. This session will be conducted via Zoom.
The state of Oregon’s requirement that all school employees be vaccinated against COVID-19 will have a minimal impact in Portland Public Schools classrooms and campuses. As of the state deadline of Monday, October 18, more than 96% of the district’s employees were fully vaccinated.
Dear PPS Families,
As the PPS Board of Education considers a requirement that students (ages 12 and older) be vaccinated against COVID-19, we are providing you a quick summary on the timeline for a possible decision:
The PPS Board of Education, at its meeting on Tuesday, October 26, will consider making Friday, November 12 into a professional development day for teachers, with no classes for students. Because November 11 is a federal holiday, Veterans Day, students would have a four-day weekend.
Dr. Cindi Swingen
Our school day starts at 8:00 and ends at 2:15.
