2018-2019 District Calendar

*SNOW DAY SCHEDULE CHANGES:  Thursday June 13, 2019 will be the last day of school.  It will be a half day. On Friday May 10th Governor Whitmer signed legislation forgiving public schools in Michigan from making up snow days called during this winter’s state of emergency.  This combined with the waiver Portage Public Schools had already received for 3 additional snow days beyond the normal 6  means the District will be able to finish the school year as originally scheduled.

Start Times:
Elementary:       Instruction starts at 8:35 AM, Dismissal at 3:40 PM; Half Day dismisses at 12:00 PM
Middle/High:     Instruction starts at 7:40 AM, Dismissal at 2:40 PM; Half Day dismisses at 10:55 AM
