    June 10, 2019


    Dear George Middle School Staff and Community,

    As you know, your Principal Mr. Robertson will be leaving his position at George to accept a new position as Chief Executive Officer with All Hands Raised. We will miss all the good that he has brought to the George community, but we also wish the best to him in his new venture. This means that George will have a new principal starting school year 2019/20.

    We would like to invite you to attend a meeting to give input on the characteristics you want to see in your next principal. We will also invite you to apply to be on the interview team that will interview finalists and help select the next principal.

    The staff input meeting with be Tuesday, June 11, during the regularly scheduled staff meeting time.

    The meeting for parents and community will take place in the library on Tuesday, June 11. 6:00-7:15pm. Light refreshments will be served, and a Spanish interpreter will be available. 

    We look forward to meeting with you and hearing your ideas. Thank you.

    Sincerely,


    Scott Whitbeck                                          Karl Logan

    George Middle School Student Health Center Closing at End of School Year Services continue to be available at nearby Roosevelt High School

    George Middle School Student Health Center Closing at End of School Year

    Services continue to be available at nearby Roosevelt High School


    What is happening?

    The George Student Health Center is closing at the end of this school year. The last day of service will be June 7, 2019. The Student Health Center team will work with clients to transition them to a new center.


    Why is it happening?

    Due to lower use of the George health center and increased cost of operations, Multnomah County is consolidating Student Health Center locations to serve the greatest number of youth.


    Where can students get health services?

    Students can access health services at any of the nine Multnomah County Student Health Centers. The nearest location to you is at Roosevelt High School, just one mile away. The Roosevelt Health Center is open 5 days a week and serves any K-12 aged youth who lives or goes to school in Multnomah County.


    Roosevelt Student Health Center is located at 6941 N Central St; 503-988-3909.
