Coronavirus: What you need to know.

The health and safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Portage Public Schools has created a special webpage to keep you informed about how we are responding to prevent the spread of infectious disease in our schools. We invite you to use this page as a resource to stay up to date on what we are doing to keep students and staff safe and healthy and minimize the impact on student learning.

Note from our Transportation Department:

The office will need to check with the transportation department before writing any bus passes.
