Welcome to Portage Northern High School

Lunch Pass

We are offering off campus lunch passes to all grades with parent permission – simply read and complete this form. The form does NOT need to be printed.  The student then simply bring $2 cash to the main office before or after school.  We will confirm parents have completed the form and will issue the pass.

Senior Guide

Our seniors received a hard copy of the 2022 Senior Guide on Monday August 30, but you can also view and/or print it here.  We encourage you to keep this handy as it is packed full of good info to guide you thru this important deadline-filled last year of high school.

Covid Protocols

Find details on our PN/PC high school mask protocols here and the full PPS protocols here.

Summary of Mask Protocols

August Huskie Tracks

It takes LOTS of information to kick off each new school year, and here’s where you’ll find it – the August/September issue of the Huskie Tracks, our (mostly) monthly newsletter. It is packed with tons of details to help you transition back into Northern life.

Natatorium Grand OpeningDedication graphic

Save the date! It was just a few short years ago that our community approved the transformation of our Northern campus. New middle school, soccer complex, sports stadium, and now the final piece is about to be dedicated. Our new natatorium will be a beautiful centerpiece between the three schools and will benefit our entire community. Make plans to come to our public dedication ceremony on Tuesday September 7 with tours starting at 5:15 followed by a few words and then an inaugural swim meet.

If you’d like to order a custom glass brick to be installed inside the Natatorium lobby, find the details at gohuskieaquatics.com.

Office Hours

Office hours are 7:30am-3:30pm. Visitors may only enter the building at the main office – please wear a mask!

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. Also, find here some great troubleshooting topics and pointers.

Work Permits

Minors under 18 years of age must obtain a work permit between the employer and the governing school district before starting work. If the minor changes jobs, a new work permit is required for the new employer. A work permit may be revoked for poor academic performance. A work permit is required even if the minor is home/cyber/virtual/online schooled, does not attend school, or is an out-of-state resident.

Here are the steps:

  1.  Print a blank from these links, or can pick up a hard copy in the 3rd floor offices. Print the CA-6 Work Permit for minors under 16 years of age (landscape format) or Print the CA-7 Work Permit for minors 16 to 17 years of age (portrait format).
  2. Student completes the top portion.
  3. Employer completes the middle section.
  4. Student bring the completed form to the 3rd floor office and Mrs Clemens will complete the bottom portion. Bring a form of ID if you have it to speed up the process. We can use the school record to verify identity, but it will take a bit longer.
  5. We will make a copy to keep in the student’s file.
  6. Take the original completed work permit back to their employer.

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.
