PORTLAND – For parents wondering what a strike would mean for their families, the district set up a multilingual hotline at 503-916-3260. Questions can also be submitted by email here.
The hotline will be staffed from 7:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. daily, and parents can get answers to questions about child care options and other activities.
Buses are expected to run as normal during the strike and school meals will still be provided, but parents can also keep their children at home while teachers are striking.
District Superintendent Carole Smith said Portland Public Schools will work with students and state officials to ensure that senior students graduate on time and all others stay on track to advance to the next grade.
The district has put together a fact sheet describing what will happen in the event of a strike. Click here to read the fact sheet (PDF)
