Here we are, the last week of school, such as it is.  Daily announcements will be winding down this week, but don’t completely check out there will be information coming throughout the summer on what school might look like in the fall.  So even though we can loosen our daily routine, please stay tuned for updates.

A Message from Mr French:

Dear Students and Parents:

Here at Portage Public Schools, we condemn racism and hate in all forms.  It’s in these times that we as a district and building wish we could be in front of students supporting their feelings, emotions and concerns.  This makes our job especially difficult while we are apart.  We all have a role in eliminating systemic racism and we have work ahead of us as a district and building to move these emotions/feelings to action.  I feel very confident that we will be taking these necessary steps to adapt our work to promote equity and to provide a voice for all of our students.

In the next few weeks, we have several groups looking to structure activities to assist with providing students a voice and opportunity to process with others their emotions and thoughts.  We will be following all local and state restrictions, of course.  Engagement in these activities will be driven by these groups at this time.

In these times, focusing on the tasks of finishing out the school year is especially challenging and we know that students are seeking security and safety in times of trauma and especially so for our black students and our other students of color.  We are all here albeit virtually to support and discuss with students their thoughts and emotions.  Please reach out to us any time, we want to help and we would love to hear from you!

You can reach me at [email protected].
