A Message from Principal Skyles

Hello, McDaniel families,

We are only a few weeks from the end of the school year. The last day for our seniors is June 3rd and June 11th for the rest of our students.

This summer there will be opportunities for students to make up credits for FREE. If your student did not pass a class last year or this school year, please reach out to their Counselor.

Here is a link to find the information to contact each Counselor:

Please let us know if you have any questions.

We still need to hear from each of our Class of 2021 families!

1. We need to know the one email address where the 6 electronic graduation tickets will be sent on Senior Check Out Day - June 3rd.

2. We need to confirm if you plan to attend the graduation ceremony

As of today, we still need about half of the Class of 2021 families to still complete the survey. It will only take about 5 minutes to complete.

Vaccine Updates from PPS as of May 17, 2021

May 17 Update: COVID-19 Vaccination Consent Form for Students Ages 12-14

Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский

Dear PPS Families,

As we shared last week, the Oregon Health Authority recently announced the approval of Pfizer’s two-dose COVID-19 vaccination for individuals age 12 and up.

In order to receive the vaccine, students ages 12-14 must be accompanied by either a parent, a guardian, or someone designated by the parent. If accompanied by an adult other than a parent, a student must have a parent-signed consent form. Below is the consent form in all PPS-supported languages:

Please visit the PPS Student & Family Vaccination website for information about our supported Wednesday vaccination opportunities at the Oregon Convention Center, which includes shuttle bus availability for students and families at five PPS locations. You can also visit for vaccination opportunities throughout the week.

Thank you.
