Enrollment Balancing: Join the conversation

View two scenarios & maps for balancing enrollment: Growing Great Schools. Learn how scenarios were developed.

PPS staff have been very clear that they expect the draft scenarios to be changed in response to community input.  11 community meetings have been scheduled to provide families, staff, and community members the opportunity to share your input and ideas for how the scenarios can be improved.  Community input will be considered by the District Wide Boundary Review Advisory Committee and used to help them make a recommendation to the Superintendent in December.  Family members are strongly encouraged to participate.   You may also share your opinions via e-mail at ppsgrows@pps.net.  Here are the list of dates, times and locations for all of the meetings:

Dear Families,

We have been notified of a voluntary nationwide recall  of Auvi-Q (epinephrine injection, USP), which is commonly known as “Epi-pen.”  As many of you know the “Epi-pen” is used in emergency life threatening allergic reactions with students.  It is a prescription medication and if your child uses the brand Auvi-Q, contact your doctor or pharmacist immediately for an alternate epinephrine auto-injector.

Multnomah Educational Service District (MESD) nurses will work with school staff to ensure families with students who use the prescription medication are notified of the recall. In the event that a student has an incident requiring the administration of epinephrine school staff will follow their training protocols which includes calling 911.  If your child uses Auvi-Q brand of an “Epi-pen,” the school will need an immediate replacement.

If your child uses the prescription medication Auvi-Q, please take immediate action and contact your doctor or pharmacist. They can also answer any questions you have about the recall and replacements.

Additional information is also available on the FDA website.


We are an AVID School
