coronavirusare the list of food distribution sites, technology survey’s (Round 2 will be posted soon), and where to access learning for your children on the Student and Parent Portal (pps.net/student). Additionally, your child’s teacher will (if they haven’t already) be sharing with you specific sites to access for their classroom as well as log-in information. We hope to update the Llewellyn webpage as resources become available as well. If you are having trouble accessing these resources and need support, please reach out to your student’s teacher, our counselor, or myself. We will do our best to connect you to what you need.
Check out our new Counselor, Music, Library, and PE/Movement websites! They are still updating these, but you will find lots of information and fun activities for your students.

Khan Academy is a great online learning website for students of all ages. The site offers short video lessons on thousands of topics, and their programs are personalized to allow children to learn at their own pace. To top it off, all videos and resources are free for all users. Check out their daily schedules for students ages 4-18.
Another great option if your student likes to dance is to search "Just Dance Kids" on youtube.com and look up some of their favorite songs for them to dance along with. Finally, you can get out and take a walk together, jump rope, ride bikes or scooters (with a helmet!), go for a hike, or create a hopscotch game with sidewalk chalk.
A Message from Principal Pam:
What a whirlwind the last few weeks have been! New information has come at us at lightning speed and now we won’t be back until, at least, April 29th. I want you to know that you have been on my mind. I miss seeing you and your students greatly. Please take care of yourselves during this stressful time. I hope that you are all staying healthy and safe as we learn how to deal with our temporary “new normal”.
Our teachers are waiting on guidance from the district in regards to what will be expected of them. Until we know what we are to do, Llewellyn Students and Families can continue to learn and access learning materials online, including:
2. Tumblebook library (visual and audio books online). www.
3. Electronic books from our PPS libraries https://library.
6. Don't forget the Multnomah County Library's resources, https://multcolib.
PPS has also provided additional support for students at: https://sites.google.com/
If you have a need for meals while school is closed, you can find information about our meal availability at www.pps.net/coronavirus. Please know that all PPS students and any child or youth ages 1-18 are welcome to stop by any one of these sites for a grab-n-go meal. At those same sites, students and families can also find staff who can help address mental health needs, provide access to interpreters, and make available learning packets and books to take home.
PPS is interested in learning about your family’s child care needs starting this Fall. We are exploring ways to provide learning support and child care when children are being taught online. Please take a moment to complete a brief online survey. Please complete this survey by Sunday, August 9 at 9 p.m.
Following weeks of public engagement, Portland Public Schools Board of Education voted 7-0 on Tuesday to refer a proposed 2020 School Bond Renewal to voters. If approved by voters, the 2020 School Bond Renewal would maintain the current tax rate and continue investments in Portland schools, including funding for critical educational, health and safety, and school modernization priorities.
As the 2019-20 school year wound down and turned into summer, Portland Public Schools continues to keep its meal distribution running to help feed our families. For families who are unable to get to the 14 school meal sites, Amazon stepped up.
At the July 14 Board of Education meeting, Portland Public Schools released a plan that lays out a procedure for renaming its buildings and other spaces. The move to reexamine district names comes in response to the continuing unrest across the country, including in Portland, in reaction to the systematic racism brought into public focus this summer.
