Welcome to Portage Northern High School

Overwhelmed by Information?

We are sending the Huskie Headlines via Skyward each day, but we know there is a LOT of information coming from all directions. Find a running log of current information on our Daily Announcements page.

Library ‘PASS’

We are excited to announce the Portage District Library and Portage Public Schools have entered into a partnership to provide Portage District Library memberships for ALL students enrolled at the Portage Public Schools. The membership is called the Library PASS (Portage Access for Student Success), and allows every student enrolled in PPS full access to the public library’s digital and physical materials. TONS of books and resources online! Find login instructions and details here.

Virtual Learning Expectations

As we gain experience in virtual learning, we are seeing clear patterns of what helps students be more successful in this environment. In observing what’s working well and what areas need improvement, we have put together a list of student expectations for virtual learning.

Office Hours

While we are not able to accept any walk-in visitors, appointments can be made during our office hours: 7:00am-3:30pm. Our main office vestibule is open 7:40am-4:00pm Monday-Friday for any pre-arranged dropoffs or pickups.

Chromebook Repairs

If a student’s Chromebook needs repairs, please fill out this form. Our building IT specialist will reply shortly with the process for the next steps.

Work Permits

Call our offices at 323-5400 to request a work permit form and it can then be left in our vestibule for you to pick up.

The student will complete the top portion, and the employer will complete the second section. Once both parts are complete, Contact us again at 323-5400 to set up an appointment to have it signed in person. The student needs to be present and should bring a form of ID with them to speed up the process. We can use the school record to verify identity, but it will take a bit longer.

Take the signed original permit back to the employer. We will keep a copy for the student file. Please note: All required fields (including signatures) must be legible, and all needed fields must be complete. (If a signature is not legible, please also print the name.) Incomplete or illegible permits will be delayed.

Note that we cannot accept drop in visits – appointments must be made in order to enter our offices.

Transcript Requests

All transcript requests for college or scholarship applications are processed directly via Parchment. Parchment also offers a great student “Tool Kit” – be sure to take a look. If you have questions, contact [email protected].

Note: Student’s unofficial transcripts can be found in their Skyward Portfolio (tab is on the left side of the student’s Skyward page).

For PNHS graduates, the PPS website has complete instructions to request transcripts.
