  • Sick? Appointment? Vacation?


    Emailing the teacher is a great idea but the office has to know too.

    The Duniway Childwatch number and/or email is the way to go because you can call or email any time before 9:15 am (the morning of the tardy or absence). Either way you report the absence, please leave the child's name, teacher, and reason for the absence (illness including symptoms, vacation, appointment, mental health day, etc).

    Call: 503-916-3625 OR email: duniwayattend@pps.net (be sure to cc your student's teacher)

    Any time a student is in the system as ‘unexcused’, the District auto-dialer will call your home.  We need to have a reason for the absence (appointment, illness etc).  If you are going on vacation, please be sure to let the office know as well as the classroom teacher.

  • Is your child sick?

    We are incredibly fortunate to have Adrienne Mahoney as our Student Health Assistant (SHA).  Adrienne works M - F, from 10 AM - 3:00 PM.  Please remember that students must be symptom free for 24 hours prior to returning to school.  While we recognize this can cause serious challenges with work and schedules, we thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    If your child is going to be absent for any reason, please call our attendance line, 24 hours/day, at 503-916-3625 OR email duniwayattend@pps.net. Leave the student's name, teacher, and reason for the absence (illness, vacation, mental health day, etc) The messages are checked by 9:30 AM every morning. 


    Individuals working, attending, and volunteering in PPS will be required to self-screen daily for symptoms of illness before entering district property or using district transportation. We ask that families use this checklist at home with your students before sending them to school. Individuals with any of the following excludable symptoms must stay home:

    • Fever (temperature of 100.4°F or higher)
    • A persistent cough that is not yet diagnosed or cleared by a healthcare provider or any acute cough illness or a cough that interferes with participation in usual school activities. 
    • Unexplained difficulty breathing or shortness of breath 
    • New loss of taste or smell 
    • Vomiting, at least one episode that is unexplained 
    • Nasal congestion or runny nose 
    • Diarrhea, sudden onset, inability to control bowels or three or more watery or loose stools in a 24 hour period
  • Thank you Lynn

    Thank you for the years of taking care of the Duniway community. Congratulations on your retirement!

    From Lynn: 

    Thanks for the Memories…..

    I am completely overcome by the overwhelming show of love and support.  My heart is full to overflowing and I feel so complete and incredibly blessed.  I have loved this community, these kids, families, and the staff so much and have grown up and old with you all!!  A gift I never knew was in my future.  How very fortunate and blessed I am and I cannot thank you all enough for sharing your lives with me and being such a crucial part of my life.  Love and SISU, Lynn


  • Welcome to Duniway!

    Below you will find a list of links to some of the important information you need at the beginning of the year as well as tips on how to remain informed with all that is going on at Duniway throughout the year!

    Staying Connected
    With more than 400 students, 250 families, and 45 staff members, there is a lot going on at Duniway. To keep track of it all and stay connected, we suggest you:

      • You can find all weekly communication here.
      • Sign up for Konstella for the latest and greatest volunteer opportunities and community communication.
      • Bookmark and make regular visits to Duniway’s website.
      • Attend our monthly PTA meetings, generally the second Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm in the school library.
  • Duniway's Core Values

    Thank you Teacher Kelly for the creative ability to showcase our core values. Enjoy!
  • PPS Username & Password

    Username and Password instructions to get into PPS Chomebooks as well as Digital Learning.

    Students usernames follow the pattern of first initial, last name, last four digits of their student ID, "@student.pps.net." For example Jay Raddison who's ID number is 123456 would have a username of jraddison3456@student.pps.net. Use your child’s birthdate such as March 8, the password would be 0308.

    Should you need help with your students username and password:

      1. Contact your student's teacher and/or school.

      2. Find your student's school contact for usernames support here.

    Students who have already reset their password but have forgotten their password, may find the Password Manager helpful.
