• Faubion PK-8 To Remain in Temporary Distance Learning Through January 21


    Dear Faubion Community,

    After careful consideration and in consultation with your school leadership, we are extending the temporary distance learning return date until January 21. While we recognize and prefer that every student be in an in-person environment, we made this decision to prioritize the health and safety of students and staff, as well as to better ensure consistent staffing available to safely operate the school. We continue to see high numbers of positive cases of COVID-19 in our community which is causing a continued rise in absences of students and staff.

    Faubion’s temporary distance learning will end on Friday, January 21. All staff and students should plan to return to in-person learning on Monday, January 24

    During temporary distance learning, a limited number of in-person student support opportunities and extracurricular activities will take place on-campus at Faubion. Principal Williams will share more details about these limited on-site activities with your community.

    We will continue to provide breakfast and lunch for daily pickup. You can pick up meals every day from 1 to 3pm at Faubion. 

    This year, students in grades 3 to 8 were issued a PPS Chromebook. If you are a family of a PK-2 student who needs a device, or if you need an internet hotspot, please contact your student’s teacher to be issued one. If you need to contact the tech support desk, you can do so by either sending an email to support@pps.net or calling our support line at 503-916-3375.

     If you have any questions, please contact Faubion’s main phone line at (503) 916-5686.

    Thank you so much for your understanding and patience as we navigate the current challenges to students and staff at Portland Public Schools.

    Esther Omogbehin
