  • Evening Scholars Tutorial Week

    Tutorial Week:  December 5 - 8.  
    • Tutorial Week is a time for students to get caught up, retake assessments, complete missing assignments, redo assignments, and improve their grades.  
    • Teachers do not present new material in class...just support students in improving their grade via prior work given. 
    • Students who attend Tutorial Week generally improve their letter grade in class by two letters.  (for example, from a C to an A or an F to a C, etc)
    • Students with A's and B's have the option to attend.  Students with C's and below are required to attend. 
    • Students should communicate with their teachers regarding any questions.  Teachers' email addresses can be found here.  
  • Inclement Weather

    Inclement Weather

    In case of inclement weather, here is the general outline Porltand Evening Scholars will follow:

    1. if PPS is closed for the day:  no PESS classes.

    2. if PPS closes early and cancels all evening events (basketball, choir, etc):  no PESS classes. 

    3. if PPS has a full day of classes but inclement weather is a possibility for the evening time:  a decision will be made by 3pm for PESS classes.

    4. if PPS has late opening:  we will have PESS classes.

    5. if PPS moves daytime classes to a virtual platform due to weather, PESS will do the same.  

    Here is how our office will communicate these decisions: 

    1. We will send out a SchoolMessenger to all students/parents informing them of what our plans are. 

    2. Administrator will send an all-staff email informing you what our plan is.  

    3. Our website will be updated with a banner along the top indicating our plan is.

    Dear PPS Community,

    I want to recognize, on this Veterans Day, all those individuals who have served our country, especially those members of our families and local community who have previously worn a uniform. I want to take this moment to also thank the many veterans who continue their public service by choosing to work in the Portland Public Schools.

  • Keeping your Students Healthy During Winter

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский

    Dear PPS Families,

    There has been a surge in pediatric respiratory illnesses other than COVID-19 such as respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), rhinovirus/enterovirus, and influenza around the country this fall. Health departments in other states have seen children presenting with multiple respiratory illnesses. According to the Oregon Health Authority, rates of respiratory disease are currently relatively low in our state, but that could change based on the arrival of winter weather, and any increase in rates has the potential to overwhelm our hospital system.

    PPS takes these steps to ensure healthy school environments so that in-person learning can continue. In accordance with CDC guidance, we are also urging families to take steps to protect themselves and minimize the spread of communicable diseases in our schools.
