  • Community Volunteers Needed

    Our community enjoys bringing their canine companions to school grounds during hours when students and after-school programs are not using the facilities.

    Unfortunately, those sneaky canines manage to poop on our field and create some stinky situations for students and staff. 

    We have decided to form a poop patrol! Click here for details and to sign up for a shift.
    Our shoes and noses thank you in advance for doing your part.

    no pooping

    ParentVue is a website that offers secure, private access to school and student information, including class assignments, attendance, emergency contacts on file, the school calendar, and teacher contact details. Parents and guardians can see information for all of their students who attend Portland Public Schools in one place. For students at the secondary level, student assignments and grades are available. 

    Click on the link to get started. Each parent or guardian will need an activation key (linked to the email address on file).  The school secretary can supply the key. Note: if you are calling the school for the activation key, you must call from a phone number on file.

    Each student also has an account to access the student version of this website, called StudentVue.

    Free and Reduced Lunch

    BREAKFAST and LUNCH are FREE for ALL Peninsula students during the 22-23 school year. Completing these forms helps Peninsula get access to other resources we may be entitled to.

    Free and Reduced Lunch forms are found at SCHOOLCAFE.COM You will need your student's ID number to complete the paperwork. If the student is a returning Portland Public Schools student their ID number can be found on their report card or in ParentVue. If the student is new to Portland Public Schools, you can get an ID number from the school office.

    If you have students at schools other than Peninsula, where lunch is free for all students, you still need to apply for students attending Peninsula.
