Office Hours, Deliveries, Pickups

Visitors: We are not yet able to accept any walk-in visitors. If you need to meet with any of our office staff, please contact them to make an appointment.

General Deliveries, Pickups: Our main office vestibule remains open for pre-arranged pickups and drop-offs to/from staff (ex: class materials, tech repairs, etc) Monday-Friday 7:30am-4pm on normally scheduled school days.

Deliveries for F2F Students: Parents/guardians may deliver urgent items to the table in the main office. Items must be pre-labeled with name and signed in. Parent/guardian should then notify their student via email or text that their item is in the office and available to be picked up, as we will NOT be sending passes or messages to alert the student. Students can come between classes or at lunch to sign for and pick up their delivery. Any item not picked up within 48 hours will be placed in the lost and found. NOTE: Do NOT deliver lunches, coffee, hot cocoa etc, as these will be discarded immediately for safety reasons.

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.

Library ‘PASS’

Need a good book? The Portage District Library and Portage Public Schools have 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.

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].
