Dear Deering -
We would like to notify you of a 2-hour delay in the start of school today, as communicated by the PPS central office: We are writing to inform you that there is a 2 hour delay in the start of school today. The PATHS morning session is canceled and Portland Adult Ed will begin at 11:00 am. Bus students should be at bus stop locations two hours later than their regularly scheduled time.
Additionally, here are some important updates for our campus:
BREAKFAST: A light breakfast featuring cereals will be provided.
METRO/TRANSPORTATION: Metro and transportation services have been informed and will align with the delayed schedule. For bus students, please note that bus stop locations should be reached two hours later than their regularly scheduled time.
TESTING: ACCESS testing will continue according to the originally planned blocks.
PATHS: Afternoon PATHS students, please be aware that Block 2 concludes at 1:00 pm. If you attend your morning Deering classes, utilize the METRO to reach PATHS. If you opt for the 10:35 a.m. bus directly to PATHS, inform us, and we will excuse your absence at Deering.
OFF-CAMPUS CLASSES: Before heading out, check your campus website (SMCC + USM) for any potential delays on their part.
AFTER-SCHOOL ACTIVITIES: Will be held as planned. They are not canceled.
Please exercise caution on our campus due to potentially slick bricks, even with salt. Stay safe and warm!
