OHSU COVID-19 Voluntary Student Screening Program
Students at all PPS schools can sign up to get free weekly COVID-19, PCR tests through their school. The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) has contracted with OHSU to provide these tests to participating K-12 schools in Oregon. The tests involve students collecting a saliva sample at home and dropping it off at school. Kits will be available to students on Wednesdays and then dropped back at the school on Thursday mornings at Lane MS. You can learn more about the program here. Information including consent forms were given to students to take home on this past Monday. This program is entirely voluntary and is another way we are working to keep our community healthy. Please consider having your student participate. Forms are still available at school and students can be added whenever they are turned in.
As always, please reach out if you have questions, concerns or needs that we may be able to help with. You can reach me by replying to this email, or by texting my cell at 971-678-9700. Be well, be safe!
Michael Rowell, Principal
Lane Middle School
PPS wants to hear from you to weigh the impacts of requiring all students 12 years and older to be vaccinated against COVID-19. We heard that Saturday is a better day for Spanish-speaking families to attend this session. This session will be conducted via Zoom.
The state of Oregon’s requirement that all school employees be vaccinated against COVID-19 will have a minimal impact in Portland Public Schools classrooms and campuses. As of the state deadline of Monday, October 18, more than 96% of the district’s employees were fully vaccinated.
Dear PPS Families,
As the PPS Board of Education considers a requirement that students (ages 12 and older) be vaccinated against COVID-19, we are providing you a quick summary on the timeline for a possible decision:
The PPS Board of Education, at its meeting on Tuesday, October 26, will consider making Friday, November 12 into a professional development day for teachers, with no classes for students. Because November 11 is a federal holiday, Veterans Day, students would have a four-day weekend.
