Portland Public Schools is implementing a new procedure for visitor/volunteer sign-in/out at all PPS schools, utilizing new software and equipment, called Raptor. Part of keeping students and staff safe is knowing who is in our buildings at all times, and the Raptor system will allow us to do that. If you are going beyond the front office, please be prepared to present a government-issued ID. The front office will scan the ID and issue a name badge. Volunteers should visit www.pps.net/volunteer to view a Mandatory Volunteer Training and to access the online volunteer application.
Advanced Scholars will be hosting the Listos Affinity Group lunch on Tuesday 9/24 from 11:25-1:30 in the library. All Latinx students are invited to attend. Please RSVP by 9/20 by returning the orange invites to Anna York (M-234) or in her box in the office), or contact her via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
