    Meals for Students

    We are pleased to announce that the meal service we have provided for students since the closure of school on March 16 will continue during the summer. Although we will lose two sites, Harrison Park and Rigler, due to construction, we are adding a new site, Faubion, to bring our total to 14 schools where students can receive breakfast and lunch Monday to Thursday, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Please note the start time has shifted from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  Faubion will start Monday, June 15.  Breakfast and lunch will continue to be free for all PPS students and all children in the community ages 1-18 years.  Children do not need to be present to receive a meal.  Pantry services in partnership with Oregon Food Bank and SUN will also continue into the summer, along with the food boxes with Pacific Coast Fruit Company.

    PPS also is partnering again with Portland Parks & Recreation to provide meals at 13 additional parks throughout the city starting June 22. 

    Summer Learning Opportunities
    Our teams are creating learning opportunities for all students and families throughout the summer. Students and families will continue to have access to online learning modules featuring activities in language arts, math, and other enrichment areas. The PPS Learning Modules can be found at pps.net/student

    In addition, our Humanities department is hosting a Summer Literacy Challenge where students in grades K-8 can participate in weekly learning challenges for the chance to receive books, gift cards, and passes to local attractions such as OMSI. More information can be found at the 2020 Summer Fun page.

  • Does your student have a kindergarten age sibling? Register them online.

    Does your HTMS student have a younger sibling who is ready for kindergarten? 

    Register for Kindergarten Online!

    If you have a child who will be 5 years old by September 1, please register for kindergarten! To register, go to pps.net/kinderenroll. The process takes 20-30 minutes and school staff will follow up with you later in the summer. With schools closed, online registration is the easiest option, but paper options will be available soon. You don’t need to register if your child attends a PPS Head Start or Pre-Kindergarten program.

    ¡Inscripciones para el Kínder en línea!

    Si su/s hijos/as van a tener 5 años antes del 1ero de septiembre, por favor inscríbalos. Diríjase a: https://www.pps.net/kinderenroll para inscribir a sus hijos/as en Kínder. El proceso dura entre 20-30 minutos y el personal de la escuela los contactara después en el verano. Ya que las escuelas están cerradas, tener las inscripciones en línea es la opción más fácil, pero muy pronto la hoja de inscripción estará disponible. Si sus hijos/as están asistiendo a un programa escolar de PPS Head Start o Pre-kinder, no es necesario que usted los/as inscriba.
