Outdoor Learning Update
Posted on 09/04/2020
This is the image for the news article titled Outdoor Learning UpdatePortland Public Schools students will have the opportunity to spend more time learning outdoors this school year. The classroom experience will expand beyond the traditional walls of the school when possible so students can experience being outdoors each day.

This may be a time when students can take a break from wearing a face mask and have a movement break or utilize an outdoor seating area in the school yard for a lesson. Being outdoors provides many learning benefits and most importantly at this time, it provides a safe and healthy space that can help to protect us all from the COVID-19 virus.

Students will not go outside if the weather or temperatures are not safe to do so. All students will have or be provided with the necessary clothing to be comfortable in the outdoors.
