Dear Families and Staff,
My heart goes out to all of those touched by the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida on Wednesday. I want our community to know that the foundation of what we do every day at Portland Public Schools is to provide a safe learning environment for our students. PPS continuously strives to prepare our students and staff on how to respond efficiently and effectively to emergency situations.
Dear PPS Community,
