Dear Lane Families,
We continue to delight in the return of students to in person school! Students continue to be attentive to the necessary precautions that keep our community healthy. Please take a moment to acknowledge the hard work that students are doing to maintain a healthy and safe school environment. Also, we are celebrating our community by wearing our school "ASK" t-shirts tomorrow. If your student has one at home, please remind them to wear it. If your does not have one, please have them speak to school staff in the morning. We still have shirts available and would be happy to supply one. Students will also be receiving a water bottle with our ASK values printed on it. We encourage all students to bring filled water bottles to school to reduce usage of our drinking fountains and ensure that everyone is staying hydrated.
Help Create an Equitable Vision for School Enrollment and Program Balancing in SE Portland
As part of a larger multi-year enrollment and program balancing process, the PPS Southeast Guiding Coalition (SEGC) has been tasked with developing a plan for adjusting school boundaries, feeder patterns, and/or program placements at Lane Middle School and Harrison Park K-8 School In keeping with the District's commitment to racial equity and social justice (RESJ), PPS is actively seeking to develop a deep understanding of the experiences, thoughts, and concerns of Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) students and families that might be impacted by this important decision. If you are a current or incoming BIPOC student or parent at Lane Middle School or a neighboring school, please join us for a dialogue session to share how PPS schools can meet students' social emotional needs and educational aspirations. All members of our school community are always welcome to contact me directly with your thoughts, concerns and feedback.
Please take a moment to look over these flyers for more information. Families can use the links below to register for a specific dialogue session mentioned in the flyer.
We are hoping to begin distributing the new data enabled Chromebooks very soon. As a part of the program, every student and instructional staff member will receive a new Chromebook to use throughout the school year AND a 30 GB data plan to support learning from anywhere. There is no cost for the data plan, but there is a user agreement that must be completed before we can issue students their new Chromebooks. You can find the forms in multiple languages here. We recommend that you fill out the form together with your student. Students should bring their currently loaned Chromebooks to school with them, as they will be used as learning tools on a regular basis and we will swap them with these new machines, starting next week.
As always, please reach out if you have questions, concerns or needs that we may be able to help with. You can reach me by replying to this email, or by texting my cell at 971-678-9700. Be well, be safe!
