Dear Forest Park Community,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! It’s been wonderful seeing students’ smiling faces, even if we’re seeing them on screens for now. Until we can return in person, our teachers are putting in countless hours to learn all the tools needed to deliver Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL). Despite the newness of teaching and learning this way, it is evident students are forming strong, positive relationships with their teachers and are engaging in meaningful learning every day.
The saying, “We are all in the same storm, but we are not all in the same boat,” is especially true right now. Thank you for your continued patience and support as we navigate these often choppy waters together. Please know we will partner with you and your children to make CDL as successful as it can be.
We look forward to having you and your children join Forest Park School for the unique 2020-2021 school year adventure. Whether we are at school, in person, or gazing at one another over our screens, we will continue to work tirelessly to support one another.
Cindi Swingen, Principal
Dear Families of PPS Secondary Students,
During Comprehensive Distance Learning, opportunities are built into the schedule for all families to be able to connect with teachers during office hours. As in a traditionally formatted year, we will also be offering Parent-Teacher Conferences (morning to evening) on November 23-24.
Dear PPS Families,
With the announcement that Portland Public Schools is extending Comprehensive Distance Learning through at least January 28, we want to make you aware of upcoming updates to our meal service as we adjust to the coming colder weather and shorter days.
Dear PPS Families and Staff,
We are now several weeks into Comprehensive Distance Learning, and simultaneously working on the next phases of a gradual re-opening of schools. PPS remains focused on published health metrics from the county and state and our medical experts. We also continue to observe Oregon Department of Education guidelines as we contemplate introducing limited in-person opportunities. While we are anxious to have all of our students back on campus, we will proceed in a measured and prudent manner that prioritizes the health and safety of our students and employees.
