PPS School Reopening for 2020-2021

Updated 3/29/2021

The School Board of the City of Portsmouth voted at its March 4 meeting to approve a school reopening plan that would allow students in prekindergarten through sixth grade to return for in-person instruction on a hybrid schedule (two full days in person, three days virtual). All middle and high school students will remain in virtual instruction for the rest of the year.

With this approved plan, special education and English Language Learners (EL) students in all grades would be able to return to in-person instruction on a four-day schedule.

This hybrid schedule will go into place Monday, April 12. In preparation for students’ return, all PPS staff members will return to schools and buildings Monday, March 29.

Families were surveyed regarding their preferred learning model (hybrid or all virtual) in a survey that closed Thursday, March 4. As families were surveyed based on a slightly different reopening plan, they can reach out to their child’s school directly if they would like to change their previous answers.

Updated plans, including schedules, will be posted on this page in the coming days as they are finalized.
