Dear Beach Parents and Community,
I hope you got to enjoy the snow with your child this week!
We are in process of (re)forming our Beach Site Council. A site council is made up of teachers, parents, non-certified staff, administrators and community members working together to increase student learning and enact our school mission.
We are hoping to form a racially diverse and representative team. We will hold our first meeting prior to Spring Break, tentatively Monday, March 18 at 4:30. Thus, we are striving to establish our parent and community membership in the next few weeks (staff membership is in place). If you are interested in being a member of our site council, please complete the Parent Representative Nomination Form. Forms are due Friday, March 8.
We will post information about site council membership and meetings on our website so parents and staff can communicate questions or concerns to the members prior to the meeting.
We would hold meetings once per month, possibly 3rd Monday of the month at 4:30, in April, May and June, then start right back up in September next school year.

The Portland Public Schools Board of Education approved a significant revision to the district policy on student field trips and out-of-town travel, and passed a resolution to offer comment on proposed construction work on Interstate 5 that would affect Harriet Tubman Middle School.
Dear PPS Families,
With hopes that inclement winter weather is done for this school year, we wanted to touch base with you regarding making up snow days. We thought it was important to share an update with you before Spring Break.
