REMINDER: PPS Schools Are Closed Until April 13/15/2020
Dear PPS Families and Staff,
This is a reminder that, in response to the unprecedented public health crisis that COVID-19 coronavirus poses to our community, Portland Public Schools will extend spring break, beginning, Monday, March 16 with a plan for students to return to schools on Wednesday, April 1 (staff will be expected to return on Monday, March 30, two days earlier). During this time, all school activities, including athletic events and practices, are cancelled. We will assess and confirm or adjust return dates for students and staff, respectively, on Wednesday, March 25.
We also want to remind you that pps.net/coronavirus is where you can find all district messaging, links to PPS-provided learning resources, access to public health agency information and where and how to access meals, health services and other supports during this extended break. You can find meal details below this message, as well.
Finally, we strongly encourage everyone to follow the emerging guidance on important practices including social distancing and handwashing. We can all play a role in slowing the spread of this virus.
We will be in touch with an update on Monday. Thank you.
