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.
