Good afternoon Trojan Families! "We were made aware a short while ago that our High school/Jr. High positive cases of COVID-19 are now above the 10 active cases threshold that we established for mandatory masking. Starting Wednesday December 15th we will require masks at the high school and junior high for the rest of this week. We will continue to monitor things at PHS/PJHS, PES, and EPE and make any other adjustments necessary these last few days before Christmas break." Sincerely, PCSD
Trojan Express Christmas Concert Postponed to January 13, 2022 6:30 p.m. Dear Parents, Out of an abundance of caution and with student absences, we are going to reschedule the Trojan Express Christmas Concert to January 13, 2022. They all have worked so very hard and are so excited about it, so I have decided to postpone it rather than cancel it all together. This way everyone will hopefully be well and we can still perform. I will send a reminder letter home the first week in January. So, mark your calendars now for Tuesday, January 13, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. Please join us for an evening of fun songs and dance! Singfully Yours, Mrs. Laurie O’Brien Ms. Jane Hartsock Trojan Express Directors
Dear Parents, Due to several students being in close contact with a student that has tested positive for COVID, we are going to reschedule the 3rd grade Christmas program to January 11, 2022. They all have worked so very hard and are so excited about it, so I have decided to postpone it rather than cancel it all together. This way everyone will hopefully be well and we can still perform. I will send a reminder letter home of parts and important information the first week in January. So, mark your calendars now for Tuesday, January 11, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. Please join us for an evening of fun songs and a lesson in humility, respect and the importance of education! Singfully Yours, Mrs. Laurie O’Brien Ms. Jane Hartsock K-6 Music Teachers EPE/PES

Dear Trojan Families, Due to circumstances with the supply chain that is beyond the control of our food service department, our breakfast and lunch menus may need to change on a regular basis. We will still be providing healthy and nutritious meals to our students. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. As always, thank you for being flexible and understanding as we continue to work through issues caused by and related to COVID-19. Best Regards, PCSD
Dear Trojan Families: Portsmouth City Schools is returning to our original policy on masks that we had at the beginning of the school year and "Strongly Recommending" masks in our buildings and school grounds. We realize that the cold and flu season will soon be upon us adding to the COVID-19 concerns that we already face, which could require a mask mandate once again. We will continue to evaluate things as we move forward and update you as needed. Thanks, PCSD
Dear Trojan Families: Portsmouth City Schools will continue to mandate masks during school hours and other indoor activities for another week (Oct. 4th through Oct. 8th). It is our hope that the number of positive cases throughout our district and county will continue to decrease so that this mandate can be lifted after this week. We will continue to monitor and update you as things progress. We appreciate your understanding.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness for October, it will be a "Pink Out" at Friday's Varsity Football Game. Please wear Pink Friday October 1st! The Portsmouth Athletic Boosters will be collecting money at home games in October to donate to the Compassion Fund at SOMC. Thanks!!!!
Hello Trojan Families, Due to the large amount of COVID-19 cases that continue to be present in our schools and local area, we will remain with mandatory masking indoors for school and events through next Friday, October 1. The decision to wear masks moving forward will be re-evaluated each week. Thank you again for your continued understanding and flexibility. Best regards, PCSD
PHS/PJHS Remote Learning for the week of 9-13-21 to 9-17-21. While on remote learning, students will be expected to follow their normal time schedule. Attendance will be done much like we are in person, with the first-period teacher posting a Google Form asking the student if he/she is present. Students must log in to the form by 7:45 each morning to be counted present, and then they will follow their regular schedule. They will access their lessons through each teacher’s google classroom, and teachers will be in their classrooms ready to assist and available to answer any questions. Thank you for your flexibility and we look forward to seeing you in person again soon.
