  • Dear Marysville Families,


    This abrupt closure and prolonged separation has been, to say the least unsettling!   I want you all to know that I continue to be committed to each of you and the success of our school.  I will work as best I can to remain connected with during this remote schooling opportunity.  The district is working to put a more long term plan in place, in the meantime, Marysville will continue to link many resources on our website. Please do not hesitate to contact us for support or educational suggestions.

    Most importantly, I want us all to maintain our focus on our health and the wellbeing of our community.


    First, we want to offer our Mindfulness focus as a support for present moment stress. 

    • This could be a time to expand, start or deepen a personal meditation practice.
    • Savor all our personal connections that we often put on hold during the school year.
    • Keep a gratitude journal
      • I would love to hear how mindfulness is showing up for you during this present uncertainty.

    Second, some temporary supports for our students and families with their home-learning experience  

     PS.  If you would like to chat, or if I could help in any way, please text or call me.  I want to be here to support you.  971-413-1090

    Take care,

    Cathy Murray

    Dear PPS Families,

    As we go into the third week of our schools being closed because of the coronavirus pandemic, we are pleased to be able to offer meals to our students again, starting Monday, March 30. As we did during the first week of school suspension, we are making sacks of breakfast and lunch available for pickup outside of 15 of our schools. In addition, seven of these sites will now include once-a-week food pantry services for families that need groceries and other items that we previously offered at PPS school SUN sites.

    Dear PPS Families and Staff,

    After much urgent collaboration and planning, today leadership from Portland Public Schools and the Portland Association of Teachers shared with all of our PPS educators the outline for how teachers will begin working online next week. This outline represents our upcoming efforts to most effectively phase in supports for our students and teachers during the extended closure of our schools. We appreciate your patience while we, like other school districts, adapt our instructional delivery model virtually overnight. Next week we will share with you a detailed, multi-week plan for home-based learning for your students. Please stay tuned for that.

    Families of PPS,

    As the coronavirus situation continues to develop, we are looking at a number of ways to deliver the best possible experiences for students during the extended break, and we want to make sure all of our students can remain connected to their peers, teachers, and schools and have regular access to learning opportunities and curriculum materials.
