Hello CHS Families,
We are getting closer to the start of the school year and student schedules went “live” yesterday evening in StudentVue/ParentVue. I know everyone is excited to see their schedules but there are still many corrections, changes and modifications that school counselors and staff need to make before the schedules are actually finalized. We understand there are errors still.
PLEASE, do not contact your counselor regarding schedules. They are working diligently to make these school-wide corrections and adjustments as quickly as possible. It just went live for them too. We appreciate everyone's patience with this process and the excitement everyone is feeling about the new school year!!
As usual, students will have the opportunity to make a schedule correction if there is a mistake in the schedule. When schedules are finalized there will be a process in place to communicate with counselors. Please do not expect a response from your counselor regarding schedules this week. We will send an update out on Friday 8/28.

First, I hope you are safe. The effect of the wild fires weighs on each of us. We have had teachers who have lost power and internet connection. Some needed to evacuate their homes and others are supporting family members who have fled the fires. We want to give space for students who are trying to process any trauma that these fires have caused. Our school psychologist, Alex Roth, and school social worker, Michelle Hardaway, will be available everyday next week from 12:00 - 1:00 to provide support for students. Here is the link for students to use to connect with this support: meet.google.com/bet-kjic-deg.
Our teachers are ready to start the regular schedule with students to engage in their subject areas. We want students to develop a regular habit of going to school every day and engaging in their classes. Attendance is taken for all periods, both synchronous and asynchronous. During the asynchronous times in the afternoons and in the mornings on Wednesday, students should use that allotted time to go to the Canvas classroom and work on the activities that have been posted by the teacher. We know that life circumstances may preclude a student from engaging in the asynchronous learning during the scheduled times. In those instances, students will still need to engage in the activity some time during that day in order to be counted as present. Asynchronous learning is not optional. Asynchronous learning presents another format in which both the student and teacher may engage with each other and the curricular content. You will see the term ‘applied learning’ listed in the schedule as well and this refers to independent learning time for the student which may include doing homework or preparing for the synchronous class.
Our counselors have been working tirelessly to make schedule changes and fix schedules. Your student’s accurate schedule will be in StudentVue/ParentVue. Canvas is synched with StudentVue on a nightly basis. So, if a counselor makes a schedule change on Friday, the Canvas classes for your student should be updated on Saturday. Your student can use this form to request schedule changes for level changes open periods: Schedule Change Request Form.
We hope you and your family are able to enjoy some time together this weekend. We look forward to seeing every student in class next week. The ‘bell schedule’ is in a chart below and it is also posted on our website under ‘Quick Links’. Please take care!

Dear PPS Families,
We want to update you on the Enrollment and Program Balancing (EPB) progress. As we’ve shared, the initial work focuses on schools in Southeast Portland in anticipation of the reopening of Kellogg Middle School. The Southeast Guiding Coalition has held six meetings aimed at creating a common understanding of the Coalition’s charge and the process for developing proposals and a final recommendation. The process is starting with a focus on grades 6-8 now, and will expand to grades PK-12 next spring.
Dear Families of PPS Secondary Students,
During Comprehensive Distance Learning, opportunities are built into the schedule for all families to be able to connect with teachers during office hours. As in a traditionally formatted year, we will also be offering Parent-Teacher Conferences (morning to evening) on November 23-24.
Dear PPS Families,
With the announcement that Portland Public Schools is extending Comprehensive Distance Learning through at least January 28, we want to make you aware of upcoming updates to our meal service as we adjust to the coming colder weather and shorter days.
Dear PPS Families and Staff,
We are now several weeks into Comprehensive Distance Learning, and simultaneously working on the next phases of a gradual re-opening of schools. PPS remains focused on published health metrics from the county and state and our medical experts. We also continue to observe Oregon Department of Education guidelines as we contemplate introducing limited in-person opportunities. While we are anxious to have all of our students back on campus, we will proceed in a measured and prudent manner that prioritizes the health and safety of our students and employees.
