• Possibility of a strike and school closures

Banner - Possibility of a strike and school closures

Student success is at the heart of all we do

  • Schools would close.
    While a strike is not inevitable, it could possibly begin as early as October 23. If teachers strike, Portland Public Schools would have no choice but to close schools. That would mean no in-person classes or online instruction. We recognize that this could disrupt critical work to close pandemic-related learning losses, and put significant pressure on families especially those with elementary-age children.

    Limited essential supports will be available.
    We will share those plans with you as soon as possible, and if necessary.

    Programming and services could be impacted, such as:

    • Athletics
    • Child care services in district schools
    • Performing arts rehearsal
    • Extracurricular clubs
    • College application support
