Dear Harrison Park School Families and Staff:
We have learned that Multnomah County plans to close our student health center on June 8, 2018. The service is not being utilized enough to warrant the escalating expense of keeping this and another location open, however, we will continue to have our School Nurse, Health Assistant, and Mental Health Counselor at this school.
6-8 grade students will begin classes at 8:45am and K-5 students will begin classes at 9:00am. All students will be dismissed at 3:15pm.
Bus riders will be admitted into the cafeteria upon arrival. Admittance into the building will only be through cafeteria (K-3), and front doors (4-6). 6-8 graders will remain in cafeteria until 8:40am and K-5 students will remain until 8:53am.
Portland Public Schools has adopted a detailed policy for making records available to the public.
At its July 18 meeting, the PPS Board of Education unanimously passed Resolution 5682, which approved a significant expansion of district policy for handling public records requests.
Portland Public Schools Superintendent Guadalupe Guerrero has been chosen as a member of the executive committee for the Council of the Great City Schools, a nationwide organization dedicated to improvement of urban public school systems.
The school year has been over for nearly three weeks, and your student is settling into a summer routine. But the time off can harm academic gains made during the school year. A number of studies point to weeks or months of learning loss, particularly for students who were already struggling. For some the “summer slide” can snowball over time, leaving them chronically below grade level.
Portland Public Schools Superintendent Guadalupe Guerrero has hired two educational leaders to play major roles in the district’s senior leadership team. Claire Hertz will serve as Deputy Superintendent for Business and Operations, and Dr. Kregg Cuellar will join the district as Chief of Schools, the district announced.
