At Porter Elementary we are #ClimbingToGreatness

Welcome to Porter Elementary School, where we provided a fantastic learning experience for all students! 

It is time to get ready for the new school year and we are excited for students to return. We are proud of the resilience and flexibility our students, families, and staff demonstrated last year. While I am proud and thankful for the growth and progress we made last year, I am confident this upcoming year will be our best one yet!

Please contact the main office at (315) 435-4625 as soon as possible if your family has recently moved. This will help us ensure busing, if your child is eligible, is set up correctly for the beginning of the school year. It is extremely important that we always have current contact information on file for each student.

Our first day of school is Wednesday, September 7th. Our hours for the upcoming school year are 8:30 am to 3:00 pm. Students may enter the school at 8:20 am for grab-and-go breakfast.

I would love to hear from you. Please never hesitate to reach out by calling the school or sending a message through Talking Points, email, or Porter's Facebook page

If we work together we can continue #ClimbingToGreatness!

Thank you, 

Andrew Nolan, Principal
