  • Locker Items, Band Instruments, and Medication Pick Up

    Hello Harriet Tubman Community! 
    All student items left in lockers will be placed in a bag for pick up. There are specific dates for each grade level to pick up locker items. This will be your only opportunity to pick up locker items.  After June 10th all items will be removed from the building.

    • Students (all grades) who need to pick up medication, and/or return Band instruments - June 8th
    • 8th-grade students - June 8th  
    • 7th-grade students - June 9th 
    • 6th-grade students - June 10th 

     The distribution will be at the Flint Street entrance. No one is permitted in the building. 

    Please be sure to wear masks to ensure safety for all.

  • Does your student have a kindergarten age sibling? Register them online.

    Does your HTMS student have a younger sibling who is ready for kindergarten? 

    Register for Kindergarten Online!

    If you have a child who will be 5 years old by September 1, please register for kindergarten! To register, go to pps.net/kinderenroll. The process takes 20-30 minutes and school staff will follow up with you later in the summer. With schools closed, online registration is the easiest option, but paper options will be available soon. You don’t need to register if your child attends a PPS Head Start or Pre-Kindergarten program.

    ¡Inscripciones para el Kínder en línea!

    Si su/s hijos/as van a tener 5 años antes del 1ero de septiembre, por favor inscríbalos. Diríjase a: https://www.pps.net/kinderenroll para inscribir a sus hijos/as en Kínder. El proceso dura entre 20-30 minutos y el personal de la escuela los contactara después en el verano. Ya que las escuelas están cerradas, tener las inscripciones en línea es la opción más fácil, pero muy pronto la hoja de inscripción estará disponible. Si sus hijos/as están asistiendo a un programa escolar de PPS Head Start o Pre-kinder, no es necesario que usted los/as inscriba.

  • Leap into 9th Grade - CANCELED


    Thank you for your interest in the Leap into 9th Grade summer program. Due to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines and budget constraints, Leap into 9th Grade will not take place this summer. Other summer enrichment opportunities for incoming 9th grade students will be shared shortly.

  • Updated Calendar Available


    The 2019-20 calendar has been updated to reflect the furlough as well as changes to the end of the school year.  It is also posted on the district website.  The last day of school for students is now Wednesday, June 10th, with the addition of the 3 snow/emergency days.

  • P-EBT may be available for families who qualify for free/reduced price meals

    As our community deals with fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, we want to make Portland Public Schools families aware of a state benefit to help pay for food. The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer program, or P-EBT, is available to help families offset the cost of meals that would have been consumed at school. It is administered by the Oregon Department of Human Services.

    The P-EBT benefit is available to families with a student who qualifies for free or reduced-price meals and any student enrolled in a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school. For those families:

    • Households who qualify for the Supplemental Nutrition Association Program (SNAP), which offers food benefits to eligible, low-income individuals and families, will have benefits automatically deposited to their existing EBT accounts. There is no additional paperwork to submit to receive P-EBT benefits.  
    • Households who currently qualify for free or reduced-price meals or attend a CEP school will receive an Oregon Trail Card in the mail along with instructions on how to activate or refuse benefits. There is no additional paperwork to submit to receive P-EBT benefits.

    For families not currently eligible and seeking benefits:

    • Households financially impacted by COVID-19 may qualify for SNAP. See the program’s website to learn more.
    • Families who have experienced income loss may now be eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. Apply online at pps.net/nutrition.

    For assistance with submitting a meal application, please contact the PPS Meal Benefits Office: mealbenefits@pps.net or 503-916-3402.

    For Pandemic-EBT questions, please contact the Oregon Department of Human Services.

  • 2020 -2021 Forecasting

    Harriet Tubman Middle School 2020-21 
    Forecasting Information and Directions


    You will need to use your PPS student number to take the survey (lunch number). Please work carefully as you may only take the survey once.  If you have any questions please contact Assistant Principal Cleann Brewer.

    Step 1.  Read the course descriptions in the survey.

    Step 2.  Decide, with your parents, which courses you would like to take in the order of preference (ex. 1 being most wanted 5 being least wanted).

    Step 3.  Take the forecasting survey for the grade you are currently in (ex. you are a 5th grader, you take the 5th-grade survey, you are a 6th grader, you take the 6th-grade survey, you are a 7th grader, you take the 7th-grade survey). 

  • NEW! PPS Student Email


    Dear Harriet Tubman Middle School Community,

    We have news regarding PPS email. 

    In order to help facilitate communications between our teachers and students, PPS has enabled a PPS specific email for students in grades 4-8. These email accounts have protections enabled and will only allow students to send and receive email from PPS email accounts. This includes students and staff at PPS.

    Students can now access their email by going to mail.google.com and signing in with their PPS student username and password.
