Media Coverage

From time to time, Portage Public Schools will invite local media (newspaper and television) into our schools to cover events and activities.  This is done in an effort to make the public aware of the outstanding learning and positive activities that occur in our schools.  Please know PPS is very sensitive to pupil privacy and monitors situation in which any student image is used in a publication.  In addition, stidents' images will not be identified on any of the school district websites.

Flyers for elementary students

Beginning in January 2012, the District will no longer send home paper flyers with our students, but instead will be posting them onto a flyer web page and will provide the information in school parent newsletters.
