Dear Roosevelt Families,
As you know, we had an incident today that resulted in us putting the school in lockdown. Fortunately, no one was physically injured, but we know this type of situation, coming just a week after the tragic school shooting in Michigan, can lead to emotional and psychological trauma for students.
With winter sports getting under way, the Portland Interscholastic League put a wrap on the fall season by announcing its all-league teams and awards. The all-PIL teams were chosen by a ballot of the league’s coaches.
Portland Public Schools continues to advocate for all eligible students and employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19. To help kick-start the effort to vaccinate younger students after doses for children ages 5 to 11 were approved on Nov. 2, we held events at several schools to give students of color the opportunity to be vaccinated.
Dear PPS Families,
With low in-school transmission of COVID-19, Portland Public Schools has been exploring how to increase students’ classroom time during this pandemic. We are pleased to announce that we are finalizing the use of a “Test to Stay” model to augment our vaccinations efforts in schools.
