September 8 Update on Power Outages and Attendance9/8/2020
Dear PPS Families and Staff,
Due to widespread power outages in the Portland metro area, we know a number of students and staff are without power at home, and unable to join their classes for distance learning today.
Current List of Schools Without Power
(updated Sept. 9)
- Llewellyn Elementary
- Duniway Elementary
- Maplewood Elementary
Students unable to log on because of power outages on Tuesday will not be penalized for their absence.
Some students who have logged on today might have noticed that their teachers did not show up for a session. This is due to teachers losing power at home and being unable to log on, themselves. Families should expect to hear from their student’s school in these cases.
Finally, there are multiple PPS schools currently without power and/or wifi at the moment. Teachers and staff will not be able to access those buildings until power returns. Please contact your building administrator to check on power in your building if you were planning on going in.
