  • Lifetouch pictures are in!

    We have received Lifetouch picture packets back for every student that took a picture on picture days in August.  The pictures are available with supply & textbook pick up for students, starting today.  In each student's packet is a code a parent can use to order pictures, if they have not ordered them already. Instructions for ordering are also in the packet.
    If, for some reason, the packet does not contain the code or instructions, parents can call Customer Service for Lifetouch at1-866-955-8342, and reference these:  our picture day ID (EVTQZQN2F) and the day they took their pictures: (they'll need to know if they came on 8/24, 08/25, or 8/26). With those, a customer service rep should be able to help them get the Portrait ID and access code or help them order over the phone.

  • Breakfast & lunch free for all students

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский

    Dear PPS Families,

    As the 2020-21 school year gets under way, we are excited to share news about school meals. Through our partnership with the United States Department of Agriculture, we will be able to provide school meals for all students at no cost at this time. 

    The USDA announced that it is continuing a program that made free breakfast and lunch available to all children during the summer. For Portland Public Schools, that means we will be able to offer seven days’ worth of meals every week for not just PPS students, but all Portland children ages 1-18.

    As we announced in August, we have expanded our meals sites to 38 schools where families can pick up sacks of breakfast and lunch on select days, from 3 to 5 p.m. 

    Our regular meal service schedule will be:

    • Mondays: 2 days’ worth of food
    • Wednesdays: 2 days’ worth of food
    • Fridays: 3 three days’ worth of food

    The complete list of meal pickup sites is available at our Fall 2020 Meals webpage. Families are welcome to visit any school site for meals, regardless of whether their children attend that school. There is no need to sign up, register or provide student ID when you arrive. All sites are outside, and we ask that you wear a facemask and practice physical distancing as you pick up meals. 

    We will continue to inform you of any updates or changes to meal service. For more information or support, please contact the Nutrition Services department at 503-916-3399 or nutritionservices@pps.net.

  • Today is a Gold Day

    Hi Riders,

    Remember, today is a Gold Day. This means that students are live with their 1st and 2nd period teachers.  


    We just found out that there is a defect in some of the Acer chromebooks that we have distributed to families.  The defect make the chromebook unable to connect to Google Meets.  If your chromebook is unable to connect to Google Meets, please bring it back to the building this week and we will get you a new device.  The district is working on a patch for this issue, but we are unsure how quickly it will be fixed.  You can come to the building on Wednesday from 2 to 5 or on Thursday or Friday (times to be announced once we determine how much need we have for new devices)


    We appreciate your patience as we work on attendance.  We know it's important that you are getting accurate information about whether your student is engaging in class or not.  More than ever, learning is a team effort this year.  Remind your student to be in live classes each morning and make sure they are completing assignments or other communication for their afternoon classes.  

    Diverse Learner Night

    Please see the flier sent out about Diverse Learner Night.  It's tonight from 5:30 to 6:30.  There is information about the upcoming Bond, SpEd, ESL, TAG, and Spanish Immersion.  

    Thanks for all you do!  We appreciate working with you to support your students during Comprehensive Distance Learning. 

    Go Riders!

    KD, Dave, and Liz

  • HORAS CORREGIDAS para el dia de la segunda toma de fotos

    Hola padre de Roosevelt,
    El día para la segunda toma de fotos  es el 14 de octubre (próximo miércoles). Hemos cambiado las horas en que los estudiantes pueden venir, para que no interfieran con las horas de instrucción de los estudiantes ese día. El nuevo horario es del mediodía a las 5:00 p.m. Su turno para tomarse una foto es por orden de apellido de su estudiante, pero si no puede venir durante ese tiempo, puede hacerlo en cualquier momento entre el mediodía y las 4:30 PM. Este será nuestra última oportunidad este año.

  • An Update Regarding Limited In-Person Opportunities

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский

    Dear PPS Families and Staff,

    We are now several weeks into Comprehensive Distance Learning, and simultaneously working on the next phases of a gradual re-opening of schools. PPS remains focused on published health metrics from the county and state and our medical experts. We also continue to observe Oregon Department of Education guidelines as we contemplate introducing limited in-person opportunities. While we are anxious to have all of our students back on campus, we will proceed in a measured and prudent manner that prioritizes the health and safety of our students and employees.

  • PPS Distance Learning to Continue Through January 28

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский

    Dear PPS Families and Staff,

    At last evening’s Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Guerrero announced plans to extend Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL) through the second quarter, which ends January 28. This decision is based on the latest public health data; we are hopeful that our next announcement shortly after winter break will be different, as we would much prefer to be back in our school buildings.

  • Important Update Regarding MAP Assessments

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский
    Dear PPS Families,
    Whether in more typical circumstances or during our current Comprehensive Distance Learning mode, it’s important for our educators to have the best possible understanding of their students’ learning needs (this is one of the reasons we began the school year with our soft start, which prioritized student-teacher connections). One of the tools PPS uses to help teachers with that understanding is the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment.
