Dear Portland High School families: 
This letter is to make you aware of an incident this morning involving a Portland High School student parking her car near Oxford and Chestnut streets. The student was not hurt and police are looking into the matter, but we’d like to remind students and their families to take precautions when it comes to driving to school. 
At this time of year, many students have just acquired their driver’s licenses, so are driving to school. As a result of that, parking has become increasingly difficult. Because PHS is part of an urban campus, wherever they park, it is important for students to be aware of their surroundings and not travel alone to and from their vehicles. 
As downtown parking near the school is limited, we urge families to ask students not to drive to school unless it is absolutely necessary. We encourage students to take convenient and safe public transportation instead. METRO buses provide free transportation to all our Portland Public Schools high school students and the bus stops are located close to the school. 
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at either 874-8205 or at jepsos@portlandschools.org. 

Sincerely,
Sheila JepsonPrincipal, Portland High School
