Stay Informed: What you need to know
The school and surrounding site will be closed all summer, including all offices.
Grout summer programs and office staff will be relocated to other sites.
Construction fencing will surround the school. The fields and/or playgrounds will be closed.
There will be increased construction traffic in and around school grounds; however, street closures are not anticipated at this time.
Work may occur in the evenings and on weekends.
While the noise and dust are a given for any construction project, we recognize that the school construction may impact school neighbors and we want you to be aware of the project now. We appreciate your patience while we do this work!
School registration for Grout will take place at the Portland Public Schools District office, 501 N. Dixon Street.
Construction will begin immediately following the end of school in June. The project team will start and finish the work this summer unless otherwise noted. The work is scheduled during the summer to minimize the impact on schools and students.
