Portsmouth City Schools would like to inform the public that we will be collaborating with the Portsmouth City Fire Department and Police Department in an active shooter drill on Thursday, October 20, 2016. Portsmouth Elementary will conduct their drill from 8:00-10:30 AM, and the secondary school drill will be from 12:00-2:00 PM. October 20th is a Waiver Day, so no students will be present during the drill.
Recently, Portsmouth City firemen presented fire safety tips to Portsmouth Elementary Kindergarten and 1st grade students. They also awarded the 1st Place trophy in the Fire Safety Poster Contest to E. Porter. Fire Prevention Week is October 9-15th.
