Welcome to Porter School, a school that provides a fantastic learning experience for all students! As principal, I have the opportunity to combine my classroom teaching experience (K through adult) and building administration experience with that of the Porter Staff. Our staff is knowledgeable, experienced and dedicated and they provide excellent academic and enrichment opportunities for all Porter students within a nurturing environment. We continue to strive towards ensuring that all students’ needs are met and we are relentless in this pursuit! I thank you for the opportunity to work with you and to watch your children learn and grow!

 

DRESS CODE:
  • Hats and head coverings are to be removed inside the building.
  • All shorts and skirts must reach finger length when arms and hands are fully extended down sides.
  • No spaghetti straps or muscle shirts are allowed and all shirts must cover the stomach area.
  • Pants should be worn at the waist line (a belt should be worn if needed) and undergarments should not be showing.
  • Due to safety issues, shoes should be enclosed or have a heel strap.
  • No Flip flops or clogs will be allowed.
  • With the above in mind, please be sure that your child’s T-shirts and sweatshirts have messages that are appropriate and do not have writing that is disruptive to the educational process. There should be no writing on the seat of pants.
