Elementary Pick-Up

Dear Porter Families,
Thank you for the valuable information that you provided in the surveys regarding transportation access that was sent home in earlier weeks. As most of you are aware, the usual next step in the process is to complete a "Notes from Home" if your child is going to be a parent pick-up. In order to reduce paper and to increase efficiency in communication within the school, we are asking that you complete an electronic "Notes from Home" for parent pick up." Which can be found under the Parent Resources Link on this website.
