  • Digital Learning

    Posted on the PPS website https://www.pps.net/coronavirus are 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.

    www.newsela.com (this site has good academic learning and social emotional learning as well)

    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. 

  • Sick? Appointment? Vacation?

    • PLEASE USE THE CHILD WATCH NUMBER TO REPORT ABSENSES, APPOINTMENTS AND VACATIONS

      Emailing the teacher is a great idea, but in the long run, the office has to know.  Emailing Mark or Stacey is fine, but there are times we are out of the office and don’t get your message in time.  So….

      The Llewellyn Childwatch number is the way to go because it is a message machine, so you can call any time before 8:40 am (the morning of the tardy or absence) at 503-916-6256.  Any time a student is in the system as ‘unexcused’, the District auto-dialer will call your home.  We need to have a reason for the absence (appointment, illness etc).  If you are going on vacation, please be sure to let the office know as well as the classroom teacher.

      With that being said:

      Cold and Flu Season is here

      It is that time of year again when children and adults are ill with signs and symptoms of colds, flu and other infections.  This is an excellent time to remember some healthy habits that may help us stay well:

      • Cover your cough/sneeze into your elbow
      • Wash your hands for at least 30 seconds, and wash often!  Wash after recess or gym, before eating, after using the restroom, blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
      • Do not share food, drinks utensils, hats, combs, lip balm or other personal items.

      Keep your student home:

      • For a fever of 100.5 or higher.  Your student can return after the temperature has been below 100 for a minimum of 24 hours without the use of Tylenol or other fever-reducing medicine
      • Vomiting – symptom-free for 24 hours
      • Diarrhea – symptom-free for 24 hours
      • Coughing – your student should stay home if the cough is deep, barking, congested or productive.

Principal's
Message

  • A Message from Principal Pam:

     

    Dear Families,

     

    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:

    1.         https://www.pps.net/library  for a wealth of password-embedded websites, research  tools, databases, math websites, etc.

    2.         Tumblebook library (visual and audio books online). www.tumblebooklibrary.comUsername: pps    Password: books

    3.         Electronic books from our PPS libraries https://library.nwtoolbox.org/common/welcome.jsp?context=pps#.  Select "electronic book" and use student's google account to sign in.

    4.         www.scholastic.com/learnathome. Scholastic has developed online resources with 20 days worth of learning journeys that span content areas. The site supports approximately three hours of learning opportunities per day, including projects, articles and stories, virtual field trips, reading and geography challenges, and more. No password or username required.

    5.         https://guest.portaportal.com/port-llewellyn Our school's links to typing websites, mouse skill practice, animal websites, learning games, Breakout Boxes (a new "escape room"- like tool grades 3-5 have been introduced to recently in library), and more.

    6.         Don't forget the Multnomah County Library's resources, https://multcolib.org/

    PPS has also provided additional support for students at: https://sites.google.com/apps4pps.net/portal/pps-student-portal

    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. 

    Please keep checking the PPS webpage and your email for changes and updates. Stay healthy & safe, and we’ll look forward to seeing you all on April 29th!
