First day of school in 2013? You've got it

February 28, 2012

Planners, rejoice! District calendars for the 2012-13 and 2013-14 school years are available now.

Featured in PPS Pulse

The calendars include start and end dates, conferences, winter and spring breaks, and other districtwide events.

Starting this fall, two changes take effect:

  • District offices will be open the Friday before Labor Day, allowing PPS to be more responsive to the needs of staff and families. (Schools will be closed; custodians will be in buildings for last-minute repairs, cleaning and room adjustments.)
  • Students begin the school year the Wednesday after Labor Day, giving teachers more time to prepare and helping schools register more students.

A committee of employees, families and board members created the calendars and sent them to the Portland School Board for approval Feb. 27.
