  • Roosevelt students deliver groceries to older and at-risk in North Portland

    Here's a link to the recent Oregonian article about Roosevelt students Terren Gurule and Miguel O'Loughlin, who have created a free grocery delivery service for seniors and our neighbors who have an underlying medical condition that puts them at risk during the pandemic.
    • Items will be delivered by Roosevelt High School student volunteers.
    • People over the age of 60 and those with underlying medical conditions can call (503) 360-0058 to place an order. The phone line is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., seven days a week.
    • Roosevelt High School Key Club and CBET Club members will take orders and payments over the phone. 
    • Groceries will be delivered as soon as possible, typically 24-72 hours after placing the order. 
    • Volunteers will also deliver meals from food pantries within the service area.
    • Spanish-speaking volunteers are available.
    • The service area covers the neighborhoods of St. Johns, Cathedral Park, Portsmouth, Kenton, University Park, Arbor Lodge and Overlook. 
    • To qualify, people must either be over the age of 60 or have a serious underlying medical condition that prevents them from safely shopping by themselves.
    • Student volunteers will follow all available safety precautions, such as wearing gloves and masks at delivery time.
  • To contact Roosevelt

    If you need to contact Roosevelt High School while we are closed, please email Tammy Wines-Rooper, our principal's secretary. Her email is twinesro@pps.net.   Thank you!
  • Coronavirus

    Hello Rider Families,

    As we learn more about the Coronavirus, it’s important to remember to wash your hands, cough in your elbow, and stay home if you have a fever.  The district, county health, and state are sharing information each day.  As more information is available, I will share it with you.  

    As we continue to learn new information about the spread of the virus, we need to remember to be compassionate and thoughtful as we talk about this illness. It has been reported that some students were joking about having the Coronavirus and other students overheard their conversation and became very concerned.  Please talk with your student about the fear and uncertainty this illness is bringing to our communities, and remind them that this is not something to joke about.  Right now, there are no confirmed cases of Coronavirus in any Portland Public School.

    More importantly, our Asian students are reporting an increase in xenophobic and racist remarks and actions focused on them because of the location of the initial outbreak of the Coronavirus.  It is being reported that students are hearing remarks in the hallways and in classrooms.  We need to stand in solidarity with, and be active allies for, our Asian students right now.  This discrimination is something that is being reported in the news across the country and the world, so it is not isolated to Roosevelt. However, it is important that we ensure we are creating a safe space for our Asian students and families and we do as much as possible to create a safe school environment for all of our students.  

    We are working with our Asian students to find ways to support them at this time, and we hope you will talk with your student about the importance of being an ally to groups who are facing discrimination.   APANO - an organization that focuses on the Asian Community in Oregon stated it best in their recent email message - “As we face the serious challenge of coronavirus, we urge our community to come together to combat misinformation with facts, to fight fear with compassion, and most of all, to care for those who need it most in this moment.”

    I appreciate our celebration of diversity at Roosevelt, and I know, as Riders, we can come together to be allies for all students no matter their race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, or ability status.  Thank you for being allies for our Asian students. And thank you for being Riders!

    Roosevelt Weekly Memo to Families

    College Ready Career Focused Committed to a Socially Just World


    Dear families,

    So much is happening at Roosevelt right now!  We had AVID students head to the OSU extension campus in downtown Portland to have a “first day of college” experience with students from Wilson and Grant.  Our Emergent Bilingual students attended the International Youth Leadership Conference with students from around the district.  Our Unified Basketball team beat the Grant Generals in front of a packed gym at Grant. And, our Jazz Band went to Idaho for a band competition and received the highest honor - a Superior Rating at the festival.  Winter sports are wrapping up.  We narrowly missed the playoffs in boys’ basketball, and spring sports are just around the corner!  Make sure to get your tickets for Bring It On the Musical.  The show starts March 5th and runs for two weeks.  

    Thanks to all of the families that have supported their students to ensure they could access these amazing oppotunities.  I am so proud to be a Rider, and I feel so fortunate to be able to work with all of these amazing students!

    Go Riders!

    Message about Coronoavirus - The district sent out a message about Covid-19 (Coronavirus).  We will be following the lead of the MESD, Multnomah County Health, and the district on any messaging or information.  We will communicate through phone, email, and text if we need to make any announcements.  Remind your students to wash their hands regularly and stay home if they are sick.

    Dear families,

    It’s looking like spring!  The warmer weather has students leaving campus for lunch in larger numbers.  Remind your student that they represent Roosevelt while they are in the community.  Most students make great choices when they are out and about, but some students are leaving trash in the neighborhood, and a few neighbors are concerned about how that looks.  We are reminding students through announcements at school, but it’s always a good message to get from different adults in their lives. 

    SAT Day will be March 4th for all of our juniors.  If you have a junior, make sure they get a good night sleep and eat breakfast on that day.  March 4th is also an early dismissal, so all students will be heading home at 1:30.  Have a great week!

    College Ready Career Focused Committed to a Socially Just World


    Dear families,

    Congratulations to our wrestling and swimming teams for their participation at the district meets this weekend.  We had students place in districts in both sports, and we had a district champion in wrestling.   Thank you to all of you who have volunteered to take tickets, run concessions, and support our athletes this winter sports season.  If you want to help out, get in touch with Sanjay Bedi, our athletic director.  

    Over the past few weeks, some of our students have been involved in fighting both on and off campus (and during and after school).  As we work with students to ensure they are safe both at school and in the community, you all are important partners in making sure our students are making good decisions.  Talk with your student about how they navigate complicated situations and what they can do if they are having issues with other students.  Counselors, administrators, and teachers are all folks that students can talk to if they are struggling to figure out how to deal with hard situations.  Many of the issues start on social media, so talk with your student about responsible ways to interact with others online.  It takes all of us working together to ensure our students make good choices and stay safe.
