District Recognizes Secret Santa Contributors


1/7/21 Update


With a decline in the number of new cases of COVID-19 in our district, our schools will open for students on Monday, January 11th

 Elementary students in grades K thru 6 will attend school five days per week.

  In the high school, students in Grades 7 thru 12 will utilize the Green/White hybrid learning model.  The exception will be for our learning support and vocational students who may attend school five days per week.


Those students who wish to remain in the remote learning model may continue to do so. Please contact the building principal’s office to schedule a time to pick up materials and grab and go meal packs.

 The administrative staff and board of directors are constantly monitoring this situation and will adjust accordingly as necessary and possible. As has been the case this entire school year, the learning model may be adjusted at any time depending on the spread of the virus in our community. I appreciate your understanding and cooperation through this challenging ordeal.  Stay safe and healthy.  Thank you. -z-

As ordered by PA DOH and PDE, the Portage Area School District has submitted the Attestation Ensuring Implementation of Mitigation Efforts signifying all or some of the students within the school district are currently receiving in-person instruction.
