COMMUNICATING WITH YOU
SchoolMessenger accesses your information through PowerSchool, so it is very important that all of your contact information, including phone number and email address, are accurate. Contact your child's school if you need to update your information.
You can easily set your preferences through SchoolMessenger so that you are receiving information the way you want it. Follow the directions below to download the SchoolMessenger app, create an account, and make adjustments to your preferences. (These preferences only apply to non-emergency calls. In the event of an emergency, all families will receive calls and emails regardless of your set preferences.)

During these first days of school, we have been receiving feedback from our families and investigating concerns regarding Versatrans E-Link. Our transportation and technology departments have been in contact with Versatrans to develop a solution.
In order to best address the feedback we have received, we will be conducting an update this evening. You will not have access to Versatrans during the update.
Beginning Saturday morning, you will be able to log in to your account. As a result of this update, your password will be reset. You will log in using your child's school ID and birthdate in all numeric digits.
In addition to Versatrans E-Link, the website HereComestheBus.com is also available to our families. This site will allow you to track your child's bus in real time in the morning and after school. Visit our website at www.portage.k12.in.us for Here Comes the Bus and Versatrans login information.
We thank you for your continued patience as our transportation staff and bus drivers navigate the current and upcoming construction throughout Portage. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we work to ensure the safe transport of all of our students.
If you have any questions following this update to Versatrans E-Link, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

GOOD NEWS AT PORTAGE
Back to School Night
Promoting a love of reading
Anonymous donors have been providing our elementary students with books this school year. Thanks to their generosity, classrooms throughout our district are receiving a free book for each student in the class each month. This month, Ms. Meiss's class at Saylor Elementary School received "If You Give a Mouse a Brownie" by Laura Numeroff. The students are enjoying their new books!
