With the country slowly coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic, Portland Public Schools was able to hold in-person high school graduation ceremonies in 2021 after being limited to drive-through ceremonies in 2020.
Partnering with the Portland Timbers and Portland Thorns, PPS used Providence Park to stage 11 graduation ceremonies over four days in an outdoor setting. We are grateful to the staff of the Timbers and Thorns for working with us to make a safe, special ceremony for each of our high schools.
The Class of 2021 dealt with a unique set of challenges, including having much of the senior year conducted under distance learning. In this video (click button to view), members of the PPS Board of Education reflect on what made this year's seniors such a special group.
See videos HERE (click the "play" button on the images to watch), photos and printed programs from each of the PPS ceremonies.
Senior Photos were taken by Visual Impressions

Dear Franklin Families and Students:
I would like to thank the Franklin community for such an amazing year. We recognize what we faced as a community starting a school year in CDL and the anticipated struggles associated with online learning. We understand how this model challenged our staff and students as we’ve grown accustomed to and lean on our beliefs of maximizing engagement, maximizing relationships, and maximizing evidence of student ability. I am grateful and impressed by the persistence of this community. You were innovative and did not allow distance learning to separate us, but rather found new ways to draw us closer together. While there were some low moments this year as we were physically apart, grieved the loss of former students, became frustrated by new technology and following what felt like an ever changing schedule; we also have so much to celebrate as students were able to physically come back to school, athletic contests resumed, extracurricular opportunities opened, new friendships were formed, and this past Tuesday we were able to celebrate the graduation of the Class of 2021.
I wish each and everyone of you a safe and enjoyable summer and look forward to seeing everyone this fall.

Dear PPS Families & Community,
Thank you for your ongoing collaboration and support as we continue to navigate these unprecedented times. In our ongoing effort to support the needs of all our students, PPS is offering an Online Learning Academy (OLA) for students who cannot attend in-person due to COVID-19 related health reasons.
Dear PPS High School Families,
Yesterday, Multnomah County Health announced updated guidance for mask-wearing: Wear a mask when indoors around people you don’t live with, whether vaccinated or not. This update is in response to increases in Delta variant cases in Oregon and is consistent with evolving guidance from state and national public health agencies, including the CDC, which today will advise that vaccinated people who live in high-transmission areas wear masks in indoor public spaces and that K-12 schools require masks for all.
