Online Registration

Thank you for enrolling your child(ren) with Portage Public Schools. If you enroll your student over a break — when school is not in session — you must call the school to schedule a time to finalize enrollment prior to sending your child to school. The soonest your child will be eligible to start is the day after  we return from a break. Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to meeting with you soon.
