School is out for Summer!
First day for 1st-8th grade is September 1. First day for Kindergarten is September 8th. We will be back in person, in school full time for 5 days a week, yippee! Our school hours will turn to previous years, where students start school at 8:45am. Elementary school finishes at 3pm and Middle School finishes at 3:15pm.
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.

This pause includes grab-and-go meal service at PPS sites, child care, and summer enrichment programs. However, we are distributing free meals at the following parks on Tuesday:
As we have repeatedly shared with families and the public, Portland Public Schools expects to fully reopen schools to full-day, five-day, in-person learning this fall. We maintain those expectations today in light of the Oregon Department of Education announcement of the Resiliency Framework for the 2021-2022 school year.
