Welcome to Stephenson Elementary School! The Stephenson Learning Community is committed to meeting the educational, social, emotional and physical needs of all students, regardless of their race, gender, background or ability. We work diligently to build relationships with every student and their families so that we may create an environment that supports every child on their individual road to academic success. All staff members, the PTA, the Foundation and the parent community as a whole, work as a cohesive unit to ensure that every child can participate in a rigorous academic program K-5. We value all stakeholders because we know it takes all of us to create a school of excellence.

Dear PPS families and students,
Every week, I am filled with joy and gratitude when I visit our school communities. We have a community that continues to demonstrate a commitment to the success of our children and youth. We have adults who care deeply for our students, and who work hard to ensure each child thrives.
Dear PPS Community,
I want to recognize, on this Veterans Day, all those individuals who have served our country, especially those members of our families and local community who have previously worn a uniform. I want to take this moment to also thank the many veterans who continue their public service by choosing to work in the Portland Public Schools.
Dear PPS Families,
There has been a surge in pediatric respiratory illnesses other than COVID-19 such as respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), rhinovirus/enterovirus, and influenza around the country this fall. Health departments in other states have seen children presenting with multiple respiratory illnesses. According to the Oregon Health Authority, rates of respiratory disease are currently relatively low in our state, but that could change based on the arrival of winter weather, and any increase in rates has the potential to overwhelm our hospital system.
PPS takes these steps to ensure healthy school environments so that in-person learning can continue. In accordance with CDC guidance, we are also urging families to take steps to protect themselves and minimize the spread of communicable diseases in our schools.
