Have you heard of Nutrislice?
Portage Public Schools, in partnership with Chartwells K12, is now using Nutrislice to publish the school menus to a new interactive website and a free smartphone app! Now our school community can access our menus anywhere, anytime!
New easy to use features include:
• More information about menu items, including a photo and description

As part of our anti-bullying policy, students and parents are encouraged to report incidents as part of our 3 step program. Ask them to:
1. “Stop doing what they’re doing” and use our school’s stop signal.
2. Then Walk away from the problem behavior.
3. If the behavior doesn’t stop, Talk to an adult.

Signed Acceptable Use Agreement
All students coming into NMS must have a signed Acceptable Use Agreement form for this school before they can use the school’s computers. This means all incoming 6th graders must submit a signed agreement form even if they submitted a form at their elementary school. The PPSNet User Agreement is printed at the back of the Student Handbook for your reference
“Opting Out” Procedure for Computer use & Internet Access
Parents have the option of excluding their child from using computers or having access to the Internet while at school. An “Opting Out” form must be signed and submitted by the parent at the beginning of EACH SCHOOL YEAR – an Opting Out form is only valid for one school year. The District believes, however, that the use of technology is an important and integral part of each child’s education.
