Due to the School Health Advisory for Continuity of Instruction our conferences will be held virtually, via Zoom or by phone. Please see more details about this advisory below. To accommodate all of our families, appointments will be limited to 25 min per teacher. Translators will be available.
Thursday, October 14th ~ Zoom Parent Teacher Conferences from 2:00PM-8:00PM

Please click the link to sign up for a Zoom conference for each of your children.
Please call the Main Office at 503-738-5161 if you have any questions.
School Health Advisory for Continuity of Instruction
To maintain the continuity of instruction during school this year, OHA and ODE are issuing the following School Health Advisory, to remain in effect statewide October 2 – October 31, unless otherwise updated:
Schools should hold family events (open houses, meet the teacher nights, carnivals, fundraisers, etc.) online, rather than in-person. If events are held in-person, hold the events outside, ensure all participants wear masks, and maintain physical distancing of 6 feet to the degree possible.
Fun Friday Dress Up Day
Friday, October 29th
Options for our dress up day include:
- Wear your costume (this must be school appropriate & not scary for our littlest puffins! Remember we now have preschoolers ages 3 and 4 at school with us!)
- Dress up as your favorite person
- Dress up as your favorite book character
- Dress up as your favorite sport/team
- Dress up in our school colors (turquoise, black, white)
We will not have any Halloween parties at school this year. Please do not send treats of any kind. We will have a fun activity (art project, etc.) in the classroom instead.
Orders due by October 15th
Students and staff are encouraged to show their school spirit and wear PacRidge gear on Fridays.

Lost & Found
Do your recognize any of these items?
Please help us by writing your child's first and last name inside of sweatshirts, jackets and any other items (water bottles, etc.) so we can get them quickly returned to your child. At the end of the month we will donate unclaimed items without names.
How do I contact my child's teacher?
If you need to contact your child's teacher by phone, please call the school at 503-738-5161. If teachers are working with students, your call will be sent to their school voicemail.
