  • FREE COVID-19 Vaccine opportunity:

    May 3, 2021

    Dear High School Students and Families,

    Students 16 and older at Portland school districts, including PPS, are being offered a new opportunity for free-of-charge COVID-19 vaccinations, starting this week at the Oregon Convention Center. If your 16+ student has not yet been vaccinated, we hope you will take advantage of this opportunity.

    Students will receive the Pfizer vaccine; it is a two-shot series, with the doses given approximately three weeks apart. Dates in the form linked below are to receive the first dose.

    PLEASE NOTE: This opportunity is also available to family members of high school students. Simply fill out a form for each family member to schedule their vaccination appointment.

    Please complete this form to schedule your student’s vaccination. If you will need a ride to and from the Oregon Convention Center, please indicate that in the form and someone will follow up with you to confirm space on one of our bus shuttles.

    The form contains additional information and details, so please click through to learn more.

    We know that the vaccination process can seem overwhelming and confusing, so we hope this process we are now offering is simple and straightforward for you and your high school student. We are here to help, and we hope you will take advantage of this opportunity.

    For more information, click on the slides here: More Information about Covid Vaccine Opportunity

    Portland Public Schools


    UPDATE for McDaniel families: 
    Below is a link for any student 16+ to sign up to be vaccinated. Families are welcome to sign up as well. PPS is helping to manage these signups, so our students and families don't have to compete with the entire region to get appointment times. 
    Students and families can sign up for Wednesdays and take a shuttle from Roseway Heights (Marshall campus to be added) to the Convention Center. Students will have an appointment emailed to them after filling out the form (link in the slides below). Students and families will need an appointment to ride the shuttle.
    The shuttle will begin May 5, running from 8:30-2:30pm and continue running every Wednesday through June. Jefferson and Roosevelt will have shuttles as well.

    Thank you!

  • Message from Principal Skyles: 3/19/21

    Dear McDaniel Families,

    At McDaniel High School, our values are Community, Respect, Education, Equity, and Diversity (C.R.E.E.D.).  A rise in anti-Asian hate has taken place since the Covid-19 pandemic. For the past year, Asian American Pacific Islanders have suffered over 3,000 racist acts of verbal and physical assault.  A recent article/radio segment on NPR (National Public Radio) and other sources say that the increase in hate crimes against Asian Americans has continued to rise over the last year.  

    We know that some of our Asian American Pacific Island students and families may have experienced hate speech and physical assaults in the community. 

    All students should feel safe at school and in their communities. SafeOregon gives kids, parents, schools, and their communities a way to report safety threats or potential acts of violence.  If you or your student want to use the Safe Oregon reporting system, you can report concerns anonymously. Click the link: www.safeoregon.com/report-a-tip/

    As we plan to welcome students back, we will work with our community partners and student organizations to make sure there are supports in place for students.  

    -Principal Adam Skyles

    Dear Colleagues, 

    As Teacher and School Administrator Appreciation Week comes to a close here at Portland Public Schools, I want to share an additional personal note of gratitude to all our hard-working and dedicated professional educators and school leaders.
