Nestled into one of Portland's classic old neighborhoods in Eastmoreland, Holy Family Catholic School is one of the premier Catholic schools in the Portland Archdiocese. A faith community of students, staff, parents and parishioners, devoted to the spiritual and academic education of our children.
Congratulations to all of the winners at the February PBIS Assembly:
Good job to the following individual winners:

Holy Family faculty and staff appreciate the hard work of all of our students as they continue to demonstrate how to be Safe, Respectful and Responsible.

Please note that when school is delayed on a Wednesday we go by our regular Wednesday start time of 9:15 a.m. which means if school is delayed two hours, our start time will be 11:15 a.m. If there is a late start on Wednesday then there will be no extended care in the morning as stated in the Extended Care Handbook. If there is an emergency early release, extended care will also be canceled for that day.
Inclement weather is just around the corner. Please remember that we go by Portland Public Schools decision. If Portland is closed then Holy Family Catholic School is closed. On rare occasions, Portland has decided to remain open and we have called a snow day if the Principal determines it is necessary for the safety of staff and students (or as happened last year, they had a scheduled day off when we were in session). It is recommended you sign up for PPS and the Private School section in Flash Alert and Twitter if you have it, just to make sure that you get all of the information in case of school closure or when emergency situations such as power outages or early dismissal arise. Please note: Sometimes only certain schools are closed due to snow in the upper elevations. Be sure to read the whole ticker at the bottom of the tv screen. Sometimes just the west side schools are closed. When all schools in Portland are closed or just the east side, then we are closed.
