5/5/2020Dear Colleagues,Innovative. Caring. Resilient.These words have deep meaning at Portland Public Schools. Almost one year ago today, thousands of Portlanders, including many of you, came together to dream up a better future, one grounded on this notion that we can reImagine Portland Public Schools. In that vision, our community highlighted attributes, educator essentials that every adult supporting our students should embody.
Dear PPS Families,
Two months ago, our daily routines changed as our community confronted the unimaginable health crisis of COVID-19. As we begin week eight from home, I hold profound gratitude for our staff for rising up to the task of educating, supporting, connecting with and providing essential services to students every day, and to you and your students for extending grace and patience to all of us as we move our 170-year old traditional school system to a more virtual model.
