Dear PPS Families and Students,
The start of this school year has been among the most challenging in our collective experience. The consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic have stretched every person and every aspect of our lives. School districts nationally, including ours, are experiencing staffing shortages that have had a significant impact on our educators, students and school communities. We also know that after more than 18 months of learning virtually, our students learn best in-person.
With the holidays upon us, we’re getting into the coldest time of the year, when snow becomes a greater possibility. It’s a good time for a reminder on how we keep you informed on school closures when inclement weather brings life in Portland to a halt. Here are the ways we get that information to you:
The Grant High School girls soccer team made history Saturday, winning the first state championship in program history. In a back-and-forth game in the Class 6A final at Hillsboro Stadium, senior Elle Frazier scored 5 minutes, 19 seconds into overtime to give the Generals a 4-3 win over Beaverton.
As we get deeper into the 2021-22 school year, we continue to take and promote measures to keep our students, families and staff safe from COVID-19. Here is a roundup of those resources.
Within an environment that fosters diversity, Benson's mission is to integrate hands-on career technical education and core academics today for the innovations of tomorrow.
