Voluntary Student Insurance

Portage Schools will again make available for purchase a voluntary student accident insurance program for the 2015-16 school year.  PPS offers this voluntary program because of trends in family health and dental insurance. Decreasing coverage levels with increasing deductibles and/or percentages of co-payment are common concerns facing families today.

Please visit www.1st to access the plans available to Portage Public School families.

As the weather changes in Michigan, we begin to see an increase in illness.  It is important for families to use good judgment when deciding whether or not your child to school. 
Help us contain the spread of viruses by teaching good hygiene and hand-washing, avoid touching your face with unwashed hands, avoid close contact with sick people, cover your coughs and sneezes, clean & disinfect surfaces and stay home when you are sick.
