Dear Reiche community, I’m writing with the great news that we received an official certificate of occupancy from the City of Portland today for Reiche Elementary School for key areas of the school that have been under construction. The building will be ready to welcome students in grades 1-5 back on Wednesday, Sept. 6, and our younger students in pre-K and kindergarten on Sept. 7, as scheduled.
The contractor has made huge progress since I communicated with you last week, and the city signed off on the work today. All of the current phase spaces – bathrooms, administrative offices, the nurse’s suite, PT/OT rooms and intervention rooms – are essentially complete and any finishing work will be done by Tuesday, Sept. 5, the day before students arrive.
Welcome to the start of the 2022 – 2023 school year! The first day of school for Grades 1-5 is Tuesday, September 6th. Kindergarten first day will be Thursday, September 8th.
