The PORTA District will begin full remote learning for our PREK- 6th grades students on Thursday November 19th with a plan to return to in-person learning on November 30, 2020. Please note we have already moved 7-12 grade students to full remote as of November 16th. We will continue to monitor our staffing and student counts and determine any future need to extend our full remote learning option. As such, continue to self-certify on a daily basis while in full remote learning.
Starting Thursday, November 19th meal delivery will begin again for all of those students who previously signup up for meal delivery during our A/B schedule. As such, if your child received delivered meals during our A/B Schedule they will automatically be reinstated. If your child did not receive those meals previously, but would like to take advantage now please email your name, address for drop off and number of students receiving meals to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will place you on a list for delivery. As our students move into full remote their schedules will not change, we will continue with the 2:00 pm dismissal. Also, please continue to self-certify on a daily basis and please call your principal if your child will not be able to remote learn for any reason.
In closing, we apologize that we are forced to make such a decision, it is certainly one that we do not take lightly, but we are forced to make this decision in the best interest of the district, our students and staff. Thank you and as a follow up, the entire PORTA District will begin full remote teaching on Thursday November 19, 2020 with a return to in person learning planned for November 30, 2020.
