  • Senior Information - April 28

    It was so wonderful to see many of you all yesterday for our senior meeting where we went over celebrations, supports, and graduation. We want every one of our seniors to cross the finish line, so from 11-1pm every Wednesday we will have staff to support you in passing your classes. Please fill out this form if your student is interested in attending. 
    We will also have celebrations from 12-2pm every Wednesday at the turn-around. Please see this slide deck we shared with seniors yesterday for events in May and information on graduation (for Span: click here). There will be more information to come as we start preparing, so stay tuned and go Riders!
  • Graduation and Senior Celebrations and Supports

    We know there have been a lot of questions about graduation, and I FINALLY have some updates.  I'm so sorry that this information has taken so long to put together. We really wanted to make sure our seniors had the opportunity for a graduation ceremony after the most disrupted year of schooling in many many years.  

    Here's some good news -  We are currently planning an outdoor ceremony to allow families to come together with the senior class and celebrate this amazing accomplishment. We will be hosting high school graduation ceremonies at Providence Park this year, allowing us to gather outside, maintain social distancing, and have a true graduation ceremony. We are still finalizing many of the details, and will be following all state and local guidelines in terms of capacity, seating, and social distancing.

    Here's the constant reminder of our reality - As COVID keeps reminding us, things may change between now and graduation. We want to remind all families to wear your mask, wash your hands, and watch your distance so our communities stay as healthy as possible. If health metrics change because of increases in COVID cases, we may have to go back to the graduation model we used last year (drive thru to get diplomas at the school).  I am hopeful that we will be able to have a ceremony outside at Providence Park!

    Here's the bad news - we still don't have a date for graduation.  It will be between Sunday, June 6 and Wednesday, June 9th.  We know there is an AP exam on June 9th in the morning, so we are trying to stay away from that date.  I'm hoping to know the date and time in the next week.  

    Here are a few things to know:

    • Senior STUDENT Meeting.  We will be sharing information about celebrations and supports for seniors throughout the month of May.
      • Wednesday, April 28th
      • 12:30pm on Google Meets -  RIDERSENIORS
    • Senior PARENT Meeting.  We will be sharing information about celebrations and supports for seniors throughout May and answering questions you might have
      • Wednesday, April 28th 
      • 5:30pm on Google Meets in English and Spanish

    Each Wednesday in May we will have a few hours for seniors to drive through the turn-around and get different things for their senior year.  Our leadership class is working on themes for the different days, and we will make sure seniors are walking away with something to remember this unforgettable year.  Thanks to our Leadership students, the Roosevelt Supporter Club, and our counselors for making this all happen!  Here are the dates and times for the different activities - mark your calendar!  Here is a flier with more information in English and Spanish

    We were hoping to have a senior awards night with families, outside on the field.  We still cannot have gatherings that large, so we are going to be putting some of our senior awards into the graduation ceremony.  More to come on that!

  • More information about hybrid vs. distance learning

    As you are thinking about what is best for your family 4th quarter (continuing with our morning distance learning only, or adding two afternoons a week of in-person hybrid support), here is a link to a video that explains more about what hybrid support will look like, as well as slides in English and slides in Spanish.

    Please make sure to fill out the survey that was emailed to your family, for each Roosevelt student. If you cannot find the survey (it came from, feel free to email us at: and we will email a fresh link to you.

    We will have family meetings next week, to answer more questions if you have any:

    Friday, April 2nd @noon

    Saturday, April 3rd @11:00am

    Thursday, April 8th @4:30

    Meetings will happen in English and Spanish. 

  • Reminder: Look for your Hybrid Survey from PPS

    Good morning Riders,

    PPS sent you a link to the High School Learning Choice Form yesterday.  Use the survey in the email to let us know if your student will be returning to Hybrid support or continuing in CDL (comprehensive distance learning).

    If you don't see the district email, please follow these steps:

    1. Look for an email with the subject line:  4th quarter In-person hybrid learning preference
    2. Check all of your inboxes and junk boxes for an email from
    3. Check the inbox of other caregivers whose email is on file.  The survey was sent to only one parent/guardian per student.

    If you didn't receive it, please send an email to  

    Enjoy your spring break.  We will be back to answer any questions you have on March 29th.

    Go Riders!

  • 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.

    Mensaje de la Directora
    Hola Riders,
    Este mes es el Mes de la Herencia de los Asiáticos Americanos del Pacífico (AAPI). Cuando pienso en nuestra comunidad AAPI, es difícil poner a un grupo tan diverso de personas en una categoría, y quiero reconocer que incluso poner nuestra comunidad AAPI en un solo grupo silencia las ricas experiencias y culturas de algunos miembros Asiáticos e Isleños del Pacífico de nuestra comunidad. Con el drástico aumento de los delitos de odio hacia nuestra comunidad AAPI en todo el país, sigo comprometida en apoyar a nuestros estudiantes y familias de AAPI y continúo trabajando con nuestro personal y estudiantes para crear un entorno escolar más seguro para nuestros compañeros de clase de AAPI.

  • A Note from the Superintendent: Appreciating our Teachers and School Administrators

    Dear Colleagues, 

    As Teacher and School Administrator Appreciation Week comes to a close here at Portland Public Schools, I want to share an additional personal note of gratitude to all our hard-working and dedicated professional educators and school leaders. While your commitment to our students is always evident, this past year with all of its challenges was truly unlike any other in our careers. The impact of this pandemic, economic crisis, and racial uprising, has required incredible flexibility, adaptation, and perseverance on your part.
