  • Student Device Request

    Dear Skyline families,

    I hope you are enjoying your summer. We continue to keep the essential needs of our families a priority as we prepare for the 2020-21 school year. As you know, PPS announced last week that all PPS schools will be online until at least November. You can see the announcement by clicking here. I understand some families may still need to borrow a computer and may need internet access. PPS is committed to helping families receive both.

    If your student needs to borrow a computer or you need access to the internet, please use this link to complete the following form to let us know. If you have contacted Mrs. Malone regarding a device, we have your information and there is no need to duplicate the form. We will work with you to find a time to pick up a computer from the school and determine the best option for internet access. If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Hiser mhiser@pps.net. 

    We look forward to connecting with all of our families soon.

  • Kidsplace Security Changes

    Hello Kidsplace Families-
    We got to talk to a lot of you today about the changes coming up at Skyline School and how it will affect Kidsplace. Starting on Thursday, January 30th the school is going to be locked all day and throughout the evening. We have figured out a way that should be pretty convenient for everyone and hopefully become a new easy routine.
    In the mornings the front main entrance door will be locked until Deb the secretary starts work at 7:30 am. Once she has started she will let you in after you buzz the main front door. Many of you arrive before 7:30 and we're asking that you call Kidsplace at 503.535.3612 and we will know you're coming. The entrance we will be using goes into the Kitchen next to the cafeteria. You can drive around the school to the back and park and walk down a small flight of stairs where the kitchen door is and we will let you in. So from 7 until 7:30 please call and use the kitchen entrance to enter. 
    In the evenings Deb will be in the office until 4 o'clock and will buzz you in the front main entrance. After 4:00 o'clock  please call  and drive around the school to the back and park and walk down to the kitchen door where we will meet you and let you in.
    Because of these hours we should miss any bus traffic and once we get used to it I think it will actually be easier for you.
    At this time there is still no texting on our Kidsplace phone. The tech person at PJA is looking into getting that up and running but for now please call. If you have any concerns or questions please let us know. There will be the same changes for all after school activities and everyone is going to have to be flexible and do a little planning for the security of the kids. Tomorrow is Wednesday and we will start this new plan on Thursday, January 30th.
    Thanks for your help and understanding, if there are wrinkles we will smooth them out as soon as possible.
    Warmly-
    Jolene and Amanda

  • Important Update Regarding MAP Assessments

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский
    Dear PPS Families,
    Whether in more typical circumstances or during our current Comprehensive Distance Learning mode, it’s important for our educators to have the best possible understanding of their students’ learning needs (this is one of the reasons we began the school year with our soft start, which prioritized student-teacher connections). One of the tools PPS uses to help teachers with that understanding is the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment.

  • Clarifying Expectations for Middle School Instruction

    Dear PPS Middle School Families,

    We apologize for the confusion many students and families are feeling with regard to middle school schedules and expectations for distance learning instruction. We have worked with educators and administrators throughout this week to come to a more clear understanding related to middle school learning experience, and want to make sure you know what to expect as well.

  • MAP Assessments for PPS Students: September 28-October 23

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский

    Dear PPS Parents and Guardians,

    As we welcome students back to the new school year, an important step for teachers is to understand your student’s most essential learning needs. To collect this valuable information, students will take Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments. The MAP assessment is a low stakes test – this means that the results are not used for grading students or for school accountability purposes.
