Welcome Back, Alliance HS Students and Families!
I am excited to welcome you and your students back for the 2021-22 school year! Last school year was not the year that any of us expected, and we are planning for and hoping for a much better year with students and families this year. It has been great to see the happy eyes of our students and they have all been very good about wearing their masks while in school. When asked, students have said that they are happier being here learning with their friends even if they have to wear a mask.
We are working closely with the district and county health officials to stay informed as to how to keep the school safe for students and families. All are required to wear a mask upon entering the school building and keep the mask on for the duration of the school day except when actively eating or drinking. The health of our students, families and staff are so important to our school community. Please take care of yourselves and our school community by continuing to stay home when sick and call and let us know if you have any covid 19 symptoms or if you have received a positive covid test. We also ask that when you are in school, you wear your mask properly by covering your nose and mouth, wash your hands frequently, use the hand sanitizers that are located throughout the building and in every classroom and that you stay 3 feet from each other while in school.
The current 2021-22 bell schedule and 6-term school year calendar is on the Alliance HS at Meek website. Please note the change from previous year’s late opening Wednesday to this year’s late opening on Monday. Don’t’ forget to bring your chrome books to school with you this year as a tool to assist you with research and instruction.
On behalf of the entire Alliance High School staff, I would like to welcome you back to our community in person every day. If you need to contact the school please call 503-916-5747. Leave us a message if we are unable to answer.
I’m looking forward to knowing all of you IN PERSON!

PPS wants to hear from you to weigh the impacts of requiring all students 12 years and older to be vaccinated against COVID-19. We heard that Saturday is a better day for Spanish-speaking families to attend this session. This session will be conducted via Zoom.
The state of Oregon’s requirement that all school employees be vaccinated against COVID-19 will have a minimal impact in Portland Public Schools classrooms and campuses. As of the state deadline of Monday, October 18, more than 96% of the district’s employees were fully vaccinated.
Dear PPS Families,
As the PPS Board of Education considers a requirement that students (ages 12 and older) be vaccinated against COVID-19, we are providing you a quick summary on the timeline for a possible decision:
The PPS Board of Education, at its meeting on Tuesday, October 26, will consider making Friday, November 12 into a professional development day for teachers, with no classes for students. Because November 11 is a federal holiday, Veterans Day, students would have a four-day weekend.
