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 PPS Families,
We want to update you on our progress on the Enrollment and Program Balancing project we have undertaken. As we have previously announced, our initial work is focused on schools in Southeast Portland in advance of the reopening of Kellogg Middle School.
Dear PPS Middle School Families,
We apologize for the confusion many students and families are feeling with regard to middle school schedules and expectations for distance learning instruction. We have worked with educators and administrators throughout this week to come to a more clear understanding related to middle school learning experience, and want to make sure you know what to expect as well.
Dear PPS Parents and Guardians,
As we welcome students back to the new school year, an important step for teachers is to understand your student’s most essential learning needs. To collect this valuable information, students will take Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments. The MAP assessment is a low stakes test – this means that the results are not used for grading students or for school accountability purposes.
