    Dear PPS Families,

    As we go into the third week of our schools being closed because of the coronavirus pandemic, we are pleased to be able to offer meals to our students again, starting Monday, March 30. As we did during the first week of school suspension, we are making sacks of breakfast and lunch available for pickup outside of 15 of our schools. In addition, seven of these sites will now include once-a-week food pantry services for families that need groceries and other items that we previously offered at PPS school SUN sites.

    Dear PPS Families and Staff,

    After much urgent collaboration and planning, today leadership from Portland Public Schools and the Portland Association of Teachers shared with all of our PPS educators the outline for how teachers will begin working online next week. This outline represents our upcoming efforts to most effectively phase in supports for our students and teachers during the extended closure of our schools. We appreciate your patience while we, like other school districts, adapt our instructional delivery model virtually overnight. Next week we will share with you a detailed, multi-week plan for home-based learning for your students. Please stay tuned for that.

    Families of PPS,

    As the coronavirus situation continues to develop, we are looking at a number of ways to deliver the best possible experiences for students during the extended break, and we want to make sure all of our students can remain connected to their peers, teachers, and schools and have regular access to learning opportunities and curriculum materials. 


Principal's Message

    Multnomah County Public Health website: https://multco.us/novel-coronavirus-covid-19

    this site has FAQs, tips for disinfecting you home, content about combatting discrimination and stigma associated with COVID, resources for folks newly facing unemployment, and more

    Oregon Health Authority and Centers for Disease Control are comparable state and national level resources.

    If you know of families struggling with stable housing, the Charles Jordan and Convention Centers are being opened as shelter for those experiencing homelessness.

    1. Stay home. The best thing each of us can do for ourselves personally, for our families, for our communities is to strictly adhere to social distancing guidelines. Yes, this means our kids cannot hang out together during spring break. Yes, this means we need to postpone our kid's birthday parties...or get creative and figure out remote ways to connect and celebrate.
    2. Just because you are not experiencing symptoms does not mean you cannot spread the virus. 
    3. Very few of us need to be using personal protective equipment (gloves, masks, etc.) right now - and if people who don't need it are using it, providers and sick people who do need it will not have it available
