  • Student and Family News, January 18

    Dear Ida B. Wells Families, 

    I hope that you and your loved ones are doing well.  I hope you found some rest this weekend and I hope that remembering Dr. King lifted your spirits, too.  Celebrating Dr. King Day always felt like a sacred day and it feels even more special now that it also marks the anniversary of our school’s name change.  It was exactly a year ago that our Renaming Committee recommended “Ida B. Wells-Barnett” as our new name and the PPS Board approved this recommendation shortly thereafter.  I’m pleased to let you know that Michelle Duster, Ida B. Wells’ great-granddaughter, will join us for a virtual community event in a few weeks on Thursday, February 24.  Michelle will help us celebrate the Black History Month and the one-year anniversary of the renaming of our school.  She is the author of several books, including Ida B. the Queen.  Most recently she published a picture book about Ida B. Wells, too.  Michelle will also join us in August for a day-long curriculum camp.   

    Last Friday Multnomah County released new guidelines regarding contact tracing in schools.  In short, Oregon will no longer consider masked contact in schools to be an exposure regardless of distancing.  We will continue to enforce all the preventative measures, of course, including social distancing and masking.  Unless I hear otherwise, we will also continue to send community notification letters whenever we have a confirmed positive case on campus.  Please continue to emphasize for your student(s) the importance of wearing a well-fitted mask, limiting the number of people they have lunch with during the school day, and practicing social distancing on and off campus.  

    Finally, a big Thank You! to all our families who contributed coffee and donuts last Friday.  Last week was busy and challenging in lots of ways.  It was so heart-warming to be well caffeinated and cared for on Friday morning.  Ms. Coning and I spent about an hour walking around the building refilling teachers’ coffee cups.  As I’m sure you can guess, we have lots of coffee drinkers on our staff.  I know they were appreciative of all of you as well. 

    Schedule This Week:

    Tuesday - B Day 

    Wednesday - A Day Flex 

    Thursday - B Day Flex 

    Friday - All 8

Without advanced notice, please call our Main Line at 503-916-5280 until further notice. Please do not leave a message as it may not be heard in time.  Instead, please call back until you reach someone.

    State Testing for 11th graders - opt-out information
    Our state and district are returning to a statewide testing system known as OSAS (Oregon Statewide Assessment System).  This has effectively replaced SBAC (Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium).  All 11th graders will be taking the tests unless parent/guardian submit the opt out forms. Each test will replace 2-3 class periods of Language Arts, Math and Science instruction. These tests are not a requirement for graduation for the classes of 2022 or 2023 due to the pandemic. If you do not want your child/student to take the test(s) (in early March), please fill out and return opt out forms to the Main Office or to the Vice Principal's Office (#139) across from the gym. NOTE that there are two opt out forms:  one for Language Arts/Math and a separate one for Science.  If you have questions about statewide testing, you can email or call Vice Principal Ayesha Coning aconing@pps.net.  Math and ELA Opt Out Form  Science Opt Out Form

In addition, this is where you put how your name is to be read at the ceremony and how to pronounce your name, if needed.

  • Student and Family News, January 10

    Dear IBW Community,

    As I’m sure you are all aware, three PPS high schools are closed for in-person instruction this week.  These closures were caused by the rapid rise in COVID-19 cases driven by the Omicron variant which has contributed to a dramatic rise in absences of students and staff.  Decisions about school closures are made by district leaders in consultation with local health officials.  District leaders are regularly reviewing key metrics for individual schools and the entire district.  The metrics include the number of students and staff who tested positive, number of students and staff in quarantine, number of vacancies, number of unfilled vacancies, and more.  I will let you all know as soon as possible should we be identified as a school that needs to transition to temporary distance learning.  In addition, please see below for some new, temporary protocols we have put in place for attendance reporting. 

    Forecasting - This week marks the beginning of student class forecasting. Over the next couple of weeks, students will have a few different opportunities to learn about our rich offering of classes and programs. This Wednesday January 12th, students will receive their transcripts, learn and re-learn how to make sense of them, and begin planning for next year’s classes. On Thursday, January 13th, we’ll be hosting a forecasting fair so that students can learn more about various classes available to take next year.

    We believe students make the best forecasting decisions when they have multiple opportunities to discuss and vet their options with as many trusted adults, friends, and loved one as possible. So we encourage families to take some time to connect with your child about forecasting. Here are useful questions we like to use when discussing forecasting in school:

    • What kind of activities interest you?

    • What topics or issues are you wanting to learn more about?

    • What is something you want to try but haven’t yet?

    • What is something you’ve started to learn about and want to learn more?

    • What kind of classwork do you find most natural for you?

    • What kind of classwork do you find most challenging?

    Students will have a chance to review their forecasted classes with a counselor by the beginning of February, and will be able to make changes throughout the spring.

    Title IX Parent Meeting - We have been having lots of important conversations with our students and staff about Title IX issues, including issues of sexual harrassment and violence.  These conversations will continue in the weeks and months to come.  We are planning to implement school-wide classroom lessons and hope to have grade-level assemblies when we can do so safely.  We also want to make sure that our families are included in these discussions, too.  Please join us on Monday, January 24 (7-8pm) for a PTA-sponsored event in partnership with PPS Title IX Office.  Your participation and partnership is essential as we continue to create a safe and supportive environment for our students.

    RETURN FROM WINTER BREAK - MESSAGE FROM PPS, Jan. 2, 2022
    Dear PPS Community, We hope that you had a restful and joyful winter break. As we welcome students and staff back to campus tomorrow, we know that the surge in COVID-19 cases as a result of the Omicron variant is at the top of many minds. We continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19 in our region and on the latest Omicron variant impact on schools. We are working with our local and state public health authorities, as well as the Oregon Department of Education, to modify, as necessary, our health and safety protocols in order to keep students and staff healthy and safe, while keeping students learning in-person all school year.   To continue reading: Community Letter from PPS regarding COVID protocols

    TEST TO STAY PROGRAM
    As part of our ongoing commitment to increase in-person learning for all students, we are pleased to announce that in partnership with OHA/ODE we startED the Test to Stay program last Wednesday, January 5th.

    Benefits of Test to Stay: Given the lower level of COVID-19 in schools, students exposed at school will have the opportunity to stay in in-person learning and minimize the impact quarantine has had on their education. This is called a modified quarantine and requires students to continue to wear masks during any activity that does not require its use, for example band, athletics, etc., until day eight (8). Students must remain symptom free and will be provided two tests during their quarantine period. You can help expedite the process by signing and returning the consent form for the BinaxNOW rapid nasal swab test, unless you already did it this year. Here is the form.

    For students who were exposed outside of the school day (at home, extracurricular activities, etc), we will have available the Test to Return process. This process will allow students to return on Day 8 after an exposure with any negative antigen or pcr COVID-19 test performed between days 5-7. 

    As always, vaccinated students who do not have symptoms do not have to quarantine or Test to Stay. We will share more specifics about this program in early January. 5-Step Process for Parents and Families

    State Testing for 11th graders
    Our state and district are returning to a statewide testing system known as OSAS (Oregon Statewide Assessment System).  This has effectively replaced SBAC (Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium).  All 11th graders will be taking the tests unless parent/guardian submit the opt out forms. Each test will replace 2-3 class periods of Language Arts, Math and Science instruction. These tests are not a requirement for graduation for the classes of 2022 or 2023 due to the pandemic. If you do not want your child/student to take the test(s) (in early March), please fill out and return opt out forms to the Main Office or to the Vice Principal's Office (#139) across from the gym. NOTE that there are two opt out forms:  one for Language Arts/Math and a separate one for Science.  If you have questions about statewide testing, you can email or call Vice Principal Ayesha Coning aconing@pps.net.  Math and ELA Opt Out Form  Science Opt Out Form

    This year IBW College and Career center has continued its partnership with ASPIRE. Aspire is the state of Oregon's mentoring program to help students access education and training beyond high school. IBW Aspire Volunteer mentors are trained volunteers in College and Career readiness, and work to support students in developing their plans after high school, editing college essays and
    completing FAFSA applications. In an effort to increase our reach to as many students as possible this year, Ida B. Wells High School is taking an opt-out approach to our mentoring program. This means all students are eligible to receive support from our Aspire Program unless a parent or guardian wishes to have their student opt-out of the program. 
    If you wish to not have your student receive support from an Aspire Volunteer Mentor please contact Winston Rivas or Kelly Milford no later than January 15th:
    *Please note that students can receive support from our College and Career Coordinators even if they wish to not participate in Aspire Program*

  • Student and Family News, January 3

    Dear Ida B Wells Community,

    Happy New Year to you and your loved ones!  I hope you had a wonderful break.  I visited my in-laws in Alaska and spent lots of time with my family.  I did a bit of skiing, ice fishing, and biking in the snow.  Although I wouldn’t mind another week off, I am excited to see our students and staff this week. 

    As I’m sure we are all aware, the number of Covid cases is increasing rapidly and this new surge will probably not subside before the end of January.  None of us can predict the future, of course - this pandemic has certainly taught us that much.  What we can do is to respond to the circumstances before us with resilience and grace.  I trust that our collective might is greater than any obstacle that lies before us.  One of the most important things that we need to do is ensure that we follow all the Covid-related protocols - wear our masks, wash our hands, keep our distance, and get a vaccine shot and/or booster, to keep ourselves, our classmates, colleagues, and school communities safe.  Our teachers will review these protocols today with students this week.   Please review this information with students at home, too.  We want to make sure that our students hear from all of us that health and safety is our highest priority.  

    Next week we will begin forecasting for the 2022-2023 school year.  We’ll go over all the relevant information with our students on Wednesday, 1/12,  and Thursday, 1/13 .  We’ll also include forecasting information in next week’s Family News.  Students will have a few weeks to make their course selections.  We are also finishing up the first semester at the end of the month.  Finals are scheduled for Tuesday, 1/25, to Thursday, 1/27.  Please check in with your students about what they need to do in order to finish the semester strong! 

    As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.  Happy New Year to you all!

    Filip Hristić, Ed. D.
    Principal, Ida B. Wells HS
    State Testing for 11th graders
    Our state and district are returning to a statewide testing system known as OSAS (Oregon Statewide Assessment System).  This has effectively replaced SBAC (Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium).  All 11th graders will be taking the tests unless parent/guardian submit the opt out forms.  By taking the test, we receive assessment results about our students academic proficiency as it relates to Language Arts, Math, and Science based upon nationally normed standards. These tests are no longer a requirement for graduation. If you do not want your child/student to take the test(s) (tentatively scheduled for late February and early March), please fill out and return opt out forms to the Main Office or to the Vice Principal's Office (#139) across from the gym. NOTE that there are two opt out forms:  one for Language Arts/Math and a separate one for Science.  If you have questions about statewide testing, you can email or call Vice Principal Ayesha Coning aconing@pps.net.  Math and ELA Opt Out Form  Science Opt Out Form

    RETURN FROM WINTER BREAK - MESSAGE FROM PPS, Jan. 2, 2022
    Dear PPS Community, We hope that you had a restful and joyful winter break. As we welcome students and staff back to campus tomorrow, we know that the surge in COVID-19 cases as a result of the Omicron variant is at the top of many minds. We continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19 in our region and on the latest Omicron variant impact on schools. We are working with our local and state public health authorities, as well as the Oregon Department of Education, to modify, as necessary, our health and safety protocols in order to keep students and staff healthy and safe, while keeping students learning in-person all school year.   To continue reading: Community Letter from PPS regarding COVID protocols
