For the third year in a row, the Portland Public Schools will have a big yellow school bus as an entry in the Pride Portland! parade. The public is invited to cheer on members of the Portland Public Schools family as they proceed down Congress and High streets in the parade, set for Saturday, June 17.

The Parade, an annual event that celebrates inclusivity, diversity and unity, begins at noon. Portland Public Schools students, staff and families that will be riding in the signature PPS school bus (or marching alongside it) should arrive at the PPS lineup spot on Preble Street near Congress Street by 11:30 a.m. The route starts at Monument Square and proceeds down Congress Street, turning right onto High Street, then left onto Park Avenue and into Deering Oaks Park.

The Portland Public Schools’ participation in Portland’s parade helps send an important message to our students, staff, families and the public that the district works to foster harmony and understanding, and that it welcomes and values everyone in the Portland Public Schools.
