Sunnyside School Park Use By Non-Students

The Sunnyside Neighborhood Association would like to say thanks to those who took the time to respond to our query about park usage and gauge your thoughts on how the exclusive use by SES students between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekdays was working. Your feedback has been helpful.

We wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that we will now be posting on our calendar days that SES students arrive late as part of Portland Public Schools planning and budget processes, and days when children are not in school and the community would be welcome at the park.

SES does not have school this Friday, Feb. 4, and school does not begin until 10:45 on Wednesday, Feb. 9. There is at least one late arrival day each month. There also is no school Monday, Feb. 21.

In March, the late opening day (10:45) is March 9. There is no school from Friday, March 18-March 25. Students return March 28.

We hope you find this information helpful as you plan your day and where you will spend it.
