  • Welcome Back Cleveland Families and Students

    Dear Cleveland Families,

    I am grateful to be reaching out to you today with the news that PPS and the 皇家华人 Association of Teachers have reached a tentative agreement. With this, we are pleased to welcome our students and PAT staff back to school. We’ve missed seeing everyone. The vibrancy of our school is centered on students 皇家华人ing with their teachers, counselors and other support staff to learn and grow. It was heartwarming to see the friend groups around campus eating lunch.

    Below you will find information that will be helpful for you as you map out the rest of the school year.

    Changes to school calendar: The District and the Union have agreed to make up our 11 lost instructional days as follows:

    • April 8 (previously a professional development day for staff)
    • May 30 is a full school day for seniors
    • June 12-14 (the dates set aside for inclement weather)

    Quarter grading and conferences: Quarter 1 report cards will be available no later than Friday, December 8th. There will be 4 evenings of conferences each three hours in length to be held during the first semester. Information about the rescheduled conference dates will be provided soon.

    The fall tradition of homecoming is being celebrated at the Warrior stadium on October 6 where our football team will be facing off against McDaniel HS. The festivities will include a parade around the track with cavalcades led by students from each class - freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors. The theme this year is disco. The festivities will continue on Saturday, October 7 at the Homecoming dance - Saturday Night Fever. Tickets will go on sale next week for students. The dance will take place in our very own gym with NO ticket sales at the door and is only for CHS students. Please reach out to Jessica Sawyer (jsawyer@pps.net), our activities director, if you would like to volunteer to help at the dance. Students will also get a behavior pledge that both they and you will need to sign before being able to attend. 


    School Policies

    I shared in my welcome back letter one of the recommendations made by the Superintendent’s Security and School Safety Taskforce that students display their student ID while on campus. All students should now have a physical school ID card that they need to bring to school every day. We also provided CHS lanyards and a plastic sleeve to hold the ID to each student. Adults check these IDs at every entrance to the school. In addition, students need to have their IDs visible when they are out in the hall with a hall pass. Students may get a replacement ID at school should they lose their ID. It is important that our students develop this habit of having their ID with them and visible during the school day.

    Cell phones are permitted at school but need to be put on silent and put away during class time. Each classroom has a sign that reiterates this rule. Where the students put their phone away is up to the teacher with many teachers using numbered pouches to hold cell phones. We want our students fully engaged with their peers and their teacher in class.

    Students will be receiving a physical copy of the . This handbook outlines the policies and practices surrounding student behavior. It includes information about our multi-tiered systems of support, the behavior matrix we use to assess student behavior and address it with appropriate actions, the district drug and alcohol policy, and guidance about suspensions and expulsions. 

    School Modernization

    Applications have been accepted for the Comprehensive Planning Committee, and committee membership will be decided by the Office of School Modernization. Our website includes a link to our modernization website - . This site contains updates on the process and information on how you can send in questions. I am excited to participate in this process with all of our stakeholders and look forward to sharing more information as we engage with each other to envision a new CHS.

  • Welcome Back Message from Principal Wadkins

    Dear Cleveland Community,

    We are so excited to welcome students to the 2023-24 school year. Our custodians have been 皇家华人ing non-stop to make our classrooms and hallways shine. Kudos to Rob Ryan, Corey Beck and the fantastic custodial crew for all of their hard 皇家华人. I am happy to be returning with most of my wonderful administrative team for another year of learning together. Alaina Langdahl is now the principal at Creston Elementary. We wish her the greatest success and thank her for her tireless support of Cleveland students, staff and families during her tenure as a Vice Principal. We look forward to building on our 皇家华人 to realize our vision of an inclusive school where students are empowered, inspired and honored.

    Please take a few moments and review all the important details of this letter that is packed with what we hope is useful information that you may want to reference all year long.

    Gear-up Days

    Gear-up is your students’ opportunity to get ready for the new school year by getting their photo IDs and HOP passes, and for families to donate to programs at the school that support your student. The dates for our Gear-up days are as follows:

    For more information on Gear-up, please check out our .It is important that students prioritize coming on their assigned day. We will have a photo make-up day on September 6th which is the next available date to get a Photo ID card/Trimet hop pass.

    Families who can are asked to help contribute funds to classes and programs each year. Our operational budget does not cover all course supplies and costs, so we rely on contributions from families to enhance the classroom experience for students. Classes that have volunteer contributions associated with them are listed on our CHS Gear-up form accessed in

    Donations and payments for PE shirts, athletic fees, event tickets, uniforms, library fees, sports passes, etc. can be made through each student grade level section on .

    First Days of School

    Tuesday, August 29th - Freshman and Seniors Only

    The school year starts on August 29 for freshmen and seniors only. Seniors will attend from 8:30 - 11:30 a.m. and will meet in the cafeteria for breakfast, get a preview of their senior year and celebrate with one another and staff. Seniors will rotate through two half hour sessions with Counselors and College & Career Coordinators to talk through post-secondary options, Maia learning, College Applications, and more!

    Freshmen will attend from 12:30 - 3:30 p.m. where they will connect with academy teachers for community building and orientation. They will have the building to themselves all afternoon  and we cannot wait to meet them all!

    This is a required day of school which comprises some of the instructional minutes for the school year. We like that we are able to have designated time to build community with our freshmen and to get our seniors off to a great start for their final high school year!

    Wednesday, August 30th - First full day for all grades 

    It will be an A Day (periods 1-4) from 8:30-3:30 p.m.

    School Communication

    We use a variety of communication means to help 皇家华人 families, staff and students aware of what is happening at school. The school calendar is updated regularly and posted on our website. Email is one primary way we communicate, and when we email students, we use their PPS email address. Please remind your student to develop a habit of checking their PPS email on a regular basis. Other electronic tools we use to communicate include the following:

    • Cleveland Website
    • Principal Updates via email
    • (critical college/career planning and communication tool)
    • and
    • CHS page 
    • CHS account

    Academic Schedule

    Students and parents will be able to view schedules in Student/ParentVue starting on August 16th. Counselors will be available for schedule FIXES for the following reasons:

    • A student did not get a class that they need for graduation
    • A student is in the wrong level of a class (i.e. scheduled for Spanish 1-2, but should be in Spanish 3-4)
    • A student has a hole in their schedule

    You may see changes to schedules before school starts as we also seek to balance classes. Schedules should be finalized before the school year starts. 


    Class attendance with on time arrival is critical for your student to access the experiences in person to succeed academically. The first few minutes of class sets the tone as the students and teachers build community. As the school year progresses, this time is used to tap into prior learning that sets the foundation for the learning outcomes for the day’s lesson. Rich conversations with their peers and facilitation of learning by their teachers are experiences that are impossible to replicate for students. Should a student need to be absent from school, a parent or guardian needs to clear the absence within 3 days. Email is the best way to communicate with our wonderful attendance support staff: (clevelandattend@pps.net). Students are considered absent if they miss more than 25% of a class period. Families will receive an automated call whenever a student is absent without an excuse. 

    School Safety

    The safety of our students and staff is paramount for us to be able to achieve our primary mission of teaching and learning. Students and staff will participate in monthly safety drills. The purpose of these drills is to have students and staff practice how to evacuate the building efficiently as well as 皇家华人ing spaces clear for emergency response personnel.
    At the beginning of the school day, our front doors are open and staff members welcome students to school. Students must show their student IDs to come into the building at our designated doors: main entrance, east wing and gate between the gym and the main building. Once the school day begins, the exterior doors are locked and everyone entering the building must use the front entrance. Students will need to show their ID cards. Upon the recommendation of the Safety and Security Task Force that was commissioned by Superintendent Guadalupe Guerro last school year, PPS is implementing a practice of having students wear their school ID cards visibly while on campus just like employees must wear their PPS badges while on campus. Last year we distributed lanyards and plastic sleeves to hold the ID cards. If your student still has it, they can use it this year. We will provide lanyards and sleeves for students for this school year as well. You and your student can expect a communication from PPS about this new practice. 

    Visitors to campus will need to sign in at the main office. Our Campus Safety Agents (CSAs) 皇家华人 with the admin team and staff to help support a safe school environment during the day and at school events.

    Electronic Devices

    Students will be expected to put their cell phones away during class time and teachers will have places designated for putting them away. We want each and every student engaged in class and making healthy decisions around cell phone use. Students should bring their personal or PPS issued Chromebook to school, fully charged each day.

    Student Supports

    We want each of our students to feel that they have a trusted adult at the school to talk to, that they know where they can access the support they need to be successful, and where they find the space to be themselves. Students can go to the Student Success Center where they can 皇家华人 with their counselor, our social 皇家华人er, our student success advocate, administrative support staff and school psychologists. Our College and Career Center is home to our career coordinator and our college coordinator who are aided by a wonderful group of parent volunteers to help students explore options for life after graduation. Our community partners support the mental health and well being of our students and are vital in our 皇家华人 with students and families. In the main office, students can find our vice principals as well as our student attendance coach. Each of our vice principals supports programs at the school that directly impacts students such as student equity council, school climate and community team, and student leadership and activities. 

    Student Handbook

    Our school climate team has been 皇家华人ing on a document that outlines practices to support students. The document is grounded in our belief statements around student success and agency. The discipline section emphasizes that our actions are rooted in restorative practices. We are aligned with the PPS Drug and Alcohol policies that promote intervention and education.  The will be linked on our website and ready for students and families to access by the first day of school.

    Parent Groups

    We have parent groups that play a vital role in the success of our students. These groups welcome the participation of all parents. 

    Cafeteria, Nutrition Services and Lunch Options

    PPS Nutrition Services provides meals at school with breakfast costing $1.60 and lunch costing $3.50. There is no charge for meals for students who qualify for free and reduced meals. is a safe, secure online payment system that can be used to fund student meal accounts. Meals provided by PPS nutrition services are served in our cafeteria. Students are free to bring their own meals and eat in the cafeteria. Conversely, students purchasing school meals may take their food and eat anywhere they like. Outdoor seating is limited to benches around the campus. Cleveland is an open campus at lunch and while students may leave campus, they should be cognizant that the exterior doors are locked again after lunch and getting back in time for class should be a priority. Regardless of where students choose to eat, they are responsible for cleaning up after themselves and 皇家华人ing our hallways, cafeteria and campus clean and welcoming.

    We hope you share in our excitement about the start of the new school year. We look forward to building community with you, 皇家华人ing alongside you to support our students, and celebrating our students with you.

    With kind regards,

    Your CHS administrative team

    Jo Ann Wadkins, Principal

    Sean Murray, Vice Principal

    Danielle Cota, Vice Principal
