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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to connecting with all of our families soon.
In keeping with our commitment to student safety, last October PPS joined school districts across the state in using the SafeOregon Tip Line. We want to remind you about this important resource.
SafeOregon was funded by the Oregon Legislature as part of a statewide effort to improve school safety. It provides a secure means for anyone to anonymously report suspicious or imminently unsafe situations, such as threats of violence, fights, drugs and alcohol, weapons, bullying, harassment, intimidation or self-harm.
Anyone, from students to parents to community members, can access the system in a variety of ways, including:
· The “Report unsafe behavior” button found on every PPS school’s website
· The SafeOregon website
· A live call/text (844-472-3367)
· An email to email@example.com
· The mobile app that can be downloaded from your Smart Phone via iTunes or Google Play
Trained staff are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to respond.
Please be sure to share this information with your friends and family. Remind your students: If you see or hear something, say something – immediately. Let’s work together to keep our community safe.
Dear Skyline Community,
We have started this school year together during a global pandemic and on an uncharted path into distance learning for school. This year literally will go down in history and we will have lasting memories of this year for the rest of our lives. We are making history, living through an experience that is uniquely ours to live. It will sometimes be hard and sometimes so amazinging cool! This school year experience will shape us and I know it will pull us together as we go forward.
As we have begun this school year, I have witnessed so much thought, concern and care by each of our staff members to uphold what is essential in our school overall and in each and every virtual classroom and lesson. What is essential is that student well being is at the forefront and that our relationships and communities are what learning is built up from.
I’m both honored and excited to be on this incredible Skyline team and to be on this unprecedented journey with you all. We are going to make this a great year together: learning, laughing, growing and sharing.
Note: The following was presented May 11 by the Community Budget Review Committee. We are thankful for the hard work and commitment shared by these volunteers.
Background and Purpose of the Community Budget Review Committee (CBRC)
The Community Budget Review Committee (CBRC) reviews, evaluates and makes recommendations to the Portland Public School Board of Education (Board) regarding the Superintendent's Proposed Budget and any other budgetary issues the CBRC or the Board identify. The CBRC also monitors and advises the Board on the allocation and expenditure of Local Option Levy funds, which will be completed under separate cover.
Dear PPS Community,
Portland Public Schools is in the process of developing and finalizing our 2021-22 budget for approval by the Board of Education, and we want to hear from you. Please join us for the 2021-22 Budget Focus Groups. Both opportunities are available to PPS students.
Dear PPS High School Families,
This is a reminder that COVID-19 vaccinations are available again this Wednesday, May 12 at the Oregon Convention Center for students 16 and older and their family members.
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. While your commitment to our students is always evident, this past year with all of its challenges was truly unlike any other in our careers. The impact of this pandemic, economic crisis, and racial uprising, has required incredible flexibility, adaptation, and perseverance on your part.
