    Dear Laurelhurst families,

    Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays — sharing a meal, playing a game, taking a walk with family and friends are all moments I cherish. I’m feeling revived and ready for the whirlwind of the next three weeks before we have our long Winter Break.

    The next few weeks of school are busy with concerts, assemblies, and classroom projects. And continued academic growth for our students! To help get the most out of this exciting time, please ensure your kids are coming to school on time with full bellies, warm jackets, and a good night’s rest. Take a moment each evening to check in with them about their school work and see how you can support them in their progress.

    In Gratitude

    Dear PPS Community,

    I want to recognize, on this Veterans Day, all those individuals who have served our country, especially those members of our families and local community who have previously worn a uniform. I want to take this moment to also thank the many veterans who continue their public service by choosing to work in the Portland Public Schools.

  • Keeping your Students Healthy During Winter

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский

    Dear PPS Families,

    There has been a surge in pediatric respiratory illnesses other than COVID-19 such as respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), rhinovirus/enterovirus, and influenza around the country this fall. Health departments in other states have seen children presenting with multiple respiratory illnesses. According to the Oregon Health Authority, rates of respiratory disease are currently relatively low in our state, but that could change based on the arrival of winter weather, and any increase in rates has the potential to overwhelm our hospital system.

    PPS takes these steps to ensure healthy school environments so that in-person learning can continue. In accordance with CDC guidance, we are also urging families to take steps to protect themselves and minimize the spread of communicable diseases in our schools.
