Need more testing labels? Contact the school office. In the meantime, you can label the tests yourself.
1. You must label the sample with this information:
1) Legal last name, first name (Make sure to put a comma after the last name.)
2) Date of birth (mm/dd/yyyy)
3) School name
2. You can write the label in 1 of these 3 ways:
• Write directly on the collection container with a fine tip sharpie or other permanent blue or
• Write on a blank label sticker and then stick it to the collection container.
• Write on a blank piece of paper and then stick it to the collection container with tape.
3. Return the sample to the school by putting only 1 sample container in each biohazard bag.
If you have questions about labeling the samples please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you need to add or remove an authorized pick-up person to your student's profile? Visit ParentVUE and choose the "Yearly Verification" tab. From there, click on the Emergency Contact tab and you will be able to add/remove names. If you need to add " permission to walk home", the work around is: in the FIRST NAME spot put "permission to" and in the LAST NAME spot put "walk home". Please notify your child's teacher of any changes to the pick up routine. Contact Stacey at email@example.com with any questions.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month: Information and Resources from PPS Student Support Services
While focusing on mental wellness is essential every month, May has been designated as Mental Health Awareness Month. Portland Public Schools is committed to uplifting wellness and to supporting all of our students to stay healthy, mentally and physically.
Dear PPS families and staff,
This week, Multnomah County health officials made an announcement about masking, due to the current COVID-19 surge. The Health Department is asking people to wear masks indoors until new coronavirus case counts and hospitalizations start to fall, and strongly recommend that people wear masks in schools. The current increase in COVID-19 cases is expected to peak in mid-June, when PPS’s school year ends.
On National School Nurse Day, we salute the four dozen nurses who serve Portland Public Schools.
Our school nurses have been at the forefront of the COVID-19 pandemic, taking on responsibility for a wholly different level of care and an illness that remains a mystery in many ways, even after two years.
May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, and Portland Public Schools recognizes the important contributions of Asian Americans Pacific Islander.
