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

This week we have been experiencing a large increase in the number of absences from students as well as staff. With much consideration, we have come up with the following plan of action: Next week, Monday, September 13th through Friday, September 17th the district will be 100% virtual/online learning. No students are to report to school, but will be required to complete work via Chromebooks/Google Classroom or what your students' teachers assign. This Friday, September 10th will be a waiver day for students. All staff will report on regular schedule. We will return to 100% in-person instruction on Monday, September 20th. When we return to in-person instruction, we will return to mandatory masks for students and staff from September 20th - 24th. We will reevaluate our mandatory mask situation on Friday, September 24th. Please check the district webpage and/or Facebook for updates. Thank you, again for your cooperation and understanding, Portsmouth City School District

We are very happy to announce that our school breakfast and lunch will be free this school year for ALL students! All students in Grades 1-6 are to be dropped off in the morning at the main entrance of the building on Union Street no earlier than 8:00am.

You must arrive between 2:35pm and 2:50pm, pull into a numbered spot, wait in your vehicle and wait for your child to come to the vehicle.
