    Hello Families of Cleveland High School,

    Today, we learned of a conflict yesterday, January 10th, after school at approximately 3:15pm involving students at Powell Park. Several Cleveland High School students were present as were youth from other schools in the city. Students report to us that there was a weapon during the altercation.

    We have engaged Portland Police who are here at Cleveland this afternoon interviewing students. We are working closely with the administrators of other schools as well as our Director of High Schools. Our counselors are providing support to students feeling upset and we also have additional counseling support available from the district. We have ample security at the Cleveland basketball game this evening and Portland Police are providing additional police presence at Powell Park today after school and into the evening.

    We appreciate the courage our students have demonstrated by reporting to us about what happened yesterday. We encourage any student who has concerns about safety to report it to a trusted adult. Please call a school administrator if you have any questions, concerns, or information to share.

    Thank you and have a safe weekend,

    Ayesha C. Freeman
