Welcome Back, Alliance HS Students and Families!
I am excited to welcome you and your students back for the 2021-22 school year! Last school year was not the year that any of us expected, and we are planning for and hoping for a much better year with students and families this year. It has been great to see the happy eyes of our students and they have all been very good about wearing their masks while in school. When asked, students have said that they are happier being here learning with their friends even if they have to wear a mask.
We are working closely with the district and county health officials to stay informed as to how to keep the school safe for students and families. All are required to wear a mask upon entering the school building and keep the mask on for the duration of the school day except when actively eating or drinking. The health of our students, families and staff are so important to our school community. Please take care of yourselves and our school community by continuing to stay home when sick and call and let us know if you have any covid 19 symptoms or if you have received a positive covid test. We also ask that when you are in school, you wear your mask properly by covering your nose and mouth, wash your hands frequently, use the hand sanitizers that are located throughout the building and in every classroom and that you stay 3 feet from each other while in school.
The current 2021-22 bell schedule and 6-term school year calendar is on the Alliance HS at Meek website. Please note the change from previous year’s late opening Wednesday to this year’s late opening on Monday. Don’t’ forget to bring your chrome books to school with you this year as a tool to assist you with research and instruction.
On behalf of the entire Alliance High School staff, I would like to welcome you back to our community in person every day. If you need to contact the school please call 503-916-5747. Leave us a message if we are unable to answer.
I’m looking forward to knowing all of you IN PERSON!
Ms. Bonnie Hobson
Dear PPS Families and Students,
We are pleased to share that more than 6,500 PPS staff have reported being fully vaccinated. As the first K-12 school district in the state of Oregon to announce vaccine requirements for all staff, we know the importance of everyone doing their part to end this pandemic by getting vaccinated against COVID-19.
Dear PPS Community,
Thanks to your feedback, we continue to make refinements to our COVID-19 Dashboard, making it even easier for PPS families to see the latest reports of students or staff who have been asked to isolate or quarantine.
Dear PPS Families,
Last week we shared with you a short survey that will help us know how many of our students (ages 12 and older) are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and/or desire to quickly access the vaccine for younger students (age 5 to 11, once approved). As of Thursday morning (September 23) , more than 23% of students have completed the survey, with 94% reporting that they were fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Dear PPS families,
As students need to quarantine and/or isolate due to a potential COVID-19 exposure, we want to provide you and your student with clarity on the guidance and the resources we are making available to teachers, schools and your family so that your student can continue learning from home if it is required.
