  • 4th Quarter In-person Hybrid Learning Preference

    PPS Reopen

    Dear High School Families,

    We are excited to announce the opportunity for your student to return to in-person hybrid learning this spring.  In accordance with Governor Brown’s recent announcement and executive order, students in grades 9-12 will be able to return to schools beginning April 19, 2021. Please note that you may choose to have your student remain in distance learning for the fourth quarter of the school year, if you prefer. 

    Over the weekend, we reached a tentative agreement with our teacher’s union and we are currently finalizing schedules for each high school.  We are required to follow health guidelines including masks and physical distancing, which limits the number of students we can have in our classrooms at one time.  

    We are working hard to safely welcome students and staff back for in-person hybrid learning

    We will follow the Oregon Department of Education Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidelines. In addition to many other safety protocols, we have implemented a number of health and safety measures to allow us to open schools safely to students and staff: 

    • All classrooms will have HEPA filters. 
    • All PPS teachers and student-facing staff have had access to COVID-19 vaccines.
    • All high schools have a social worker.

    The schedule outlined below maintains current student-teacher relationships and academic progress, limits transitions and different schedules. It provides an opportunity for students to come to school in person to continue their studies and participate in peer and socio-emotional learning. The schedule works for in person learning and for students remaining in comprehensive distance learning.

    What will your student’s day look like? 

    All students in comprehensive high schools will continue their morning schedule of distance learning to maintain consistency, academic progress and classroom routines. In the afternoons, students will be split into groups.  Most comprehensive schools will have two groups for in-person instruction and a third for students remaining in distance learning based on our current best plan at grouping students and class capacity limits.  This schedule will vary in some alternative and other Multiple Pathways schools. 

    Students in comprehensive high schools participating in in-person hybrid learning will:

    •  Attend school two days a week, 
    •  Attend two classes each day,
    •  For two and a half hours each day.  

    All student IDs also serve as TriMet bus passes.  Students in distance learning will continue with asynchronous assignments in the afternoon.  

    During in person learning, students and teachers will be going deeper on the content presented in the morning sessions.  Students who are completing asynchronous learning in the afternoon will be doing the guided and independent practice, just as they are currently doing in the afternoon.  Your school’s specific schedule will be posted on your school’s website.

    Is in-person hybrid learning for your student?

    Knowing how many students will participate in in-person learning this spring will help us plan for reopening.  The priority date for completing the survey is March 24th, 2021 so that we may finalize student groupings, transportation arrangements and other logistics.  This is your chance to choose in-person learning.  It is critical that we hear from you so we can communicate with students about their fourth quarter schedule.  We look forward to your response!

    We are including the CDC Checklist for Families to help your family make an informed decision. If you have any questions, please submit them through Let’s Talk on the PPS Website Contact Page given the upcoming Spring Break.

    We are excited to safely welcome students back to our schools. Thank you for your continuing partnership as we get closer to launching hybrid instruction at PPS.

  • Message from Principal Skyles: 3/19/21

    Dear McDaniel Families,

    At McDaniel High School, our values are Community, Respect, Education, Equity, and Diversity (C.R.E.E.D.).  A rise in anti-Asian hate has taken place since the Covid-19 pandemic. For the past year, Asian American Pacific Islanders have suffered over 3,000 racist acts of verbal and physical assault.  A recent article/radio segment on NPR (National Public Radio) and other sources say that the increase in hate crimes against Asian Americans has continued to rise over the last year.  

    We know that some of our Asian American Pacific Island students and families may have experienced hate speech and physical assaults in the community. 

    All students should feel safe at school and in their communities. SafeOregon gives kids, parents, schools, and their communities a way to report safety threats or potential acts of violence.  If you or your student want to use the Safe Oregon reporting system, you can report concerns anonymously. Click the link: www.safeoregon.com/report-a-tip/

    As we plan to welcome students back, we will work with our community partners and student organizations to make sure there are supports in place for students.  

    -Principal Adam Skyles
