PORTA Jr/Sr High experiences Fire in the Art Room.

As you know we have had a significant fire in the building, mainly contained in the HS Art room, but we have smoke and soot damage throughout the majority of the building.  In an abundance of caution, we will need to move to a “Full Remote” schedule for grades 7-12 beginning Thursday of this week and plan on returning to school for in person learning on November 29th if clean up goes as planned.. Remote learning will follow a regular bell schedule. PORTA Central and Petersburg Elementary will continue attending in person.  We will have a technology and personal item pickup day beginning Wednesday November 17, 2021.  Students may ride the bus to school to retrieve belongings and technology and we will transport you back to home following your pickup.  Students who transport themselves may come to the building from 8:15 Am to Noon to pick up technology and personal items from their lockers in preparation for remote learning.  While we are very limited on the number of hotspots we have available, if connectivity is an issue for your family we will try to accommodate your students in some fashion if necessary.  Please check your email for additional information from Mrs. McMahan regarding instructions for remote learning.


All events/Teams/Activities will be contacted by their coaches and sponsors for information about performances, practices and competitions, moving forward.  


The Board of Education meeting for tonight has been moved to Petersburg Elementary Cafeteria.
