Dear PPS Families and Community,
If you plan to visit a Portland Public Schools campus, you need to be aware of COVID-19 health and safety measures that will go into effect starting Monday, October 18.
PPS wants to hear from you to weigh the impacts of requiring all students 12 years and older to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Next week we will host a series of virtual listening sessions for students and families. They will be conducted via Zoom.
