As we enter the last month of school, we want to remind you of the importance of school attendance. The end of the school year brings many events and celebrations and we want to make sure your child is here to participate. The last day of school for Portland Public Schools this year is June 12. Our teachers will be here teaching every day until then. Please make sure your child is here too!
