    With the end of the school year upon us, many families are already wondering who their teachers will be next year. With the uncertainty regarding our staffing for the fall, class placements will be shared in August. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

  • iReady COVID-19 At Home Test Kits

    The Oregon Health Authority has provided iHealth home test kits for every K-12 student in PPS. Your student will be bringing home one box (two kits) this week. In addition to the tests provided by OHA, the federal government offers free at-home tests, which can be ordered here

    If your student develops symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or has had a known exposure to COVID-19, we encourage you to test your student. Please see the OHA flyer  for more information on how to use these kits.

    Dear Laurelhurst Community, 

    Last week was a tough week for all of us. The school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, continues to weigh heavily on me, as both a school leader and as a parent. We have so much to be thankful for in our school community, and we carry a great deal of responsibility in keeping our students safe. Thank you for trusting us to take care of your children.  

    Please continue to share with your children the importance of reporting concerns to a trusted adult immediately if they are aware of any possible threat. We urge you to immediately contact school staff, the police, or the 24-hour anonymous SafeOregon tip line at 844-472-3367.

    Thank you all for your generous support of our school. Our Foundation held an amazing auction and raised $150,000! Altogether this year, the Foundation made approximately $190K, so we will be donating approximately $60K to the PPS Parent Fund and will spend $130K on supplemental staffing next year. Thank you to our auction committee and our community!

    In May we also held our annual run-for-the-arts event, Laps for Lions. Our amazing students and families raised over $32,000 to support our Arts enrichments at Laurelhurst. I am so excited to bring even more arts to our school next year. The runners with the most laps in each class were: 

    The K-5 class with the most donations will celebrate with an ice cream sundae party tomorrow. We had a tie: Ms. Lemma’s first grade class and Ms. Heinrich’s kindergarten classes! The middle school class with the most donations will get a frozen treat tomorrow as well. The winner is . . Ms. Blakemore’s third period class! 

    Our Book Fair was also a huge success. You can continue to shop from home by using our school's link:  https://www.scholastic.com/bf/laurelhurstbookfair. The online fair will be open until  June 2nd and book orders over $25 ship to your home for free. 

    I hope you and your family have enjoyed the long Memorial Day weekend and are ready for the many exciting and celebratory events we have planned at Laurelhurst. I look forward to celebrating the end of this school year with you and your children! 

    Thanks,

    Alyson Brant (she/her)
