Schools Closed Until May 4
Posted on 04/02/2020
This is the image for the news article titled Schools Closed Until May 4The Portland Public Schools will now be closed until May 4 instead of April 27.

In an April 2 letter sent to PPS families, Superintendent Xavier Botana says he is extending the school closure after Gov. Janet Mills’ statewide “stay-at-home” order issued earlier this week.

Botana’s letter also provides more information on remote learning, including the district’s overall goals for student learning during the transition and guidance regarding protecting students’ and staff’s privacy when using video remote learning.

The letter also outlines ways that families and students can get assistance from social workers and others during this stressful time. Botana reminds everyone to practice physical distancing to stay safe during this COVID-19 outbreak.
