  • PRHS Communications

    Porter Ridge High School is committed to providing parents and students with a lot of communication. School staff reinforce with students the very applicable adult life skill of checking their UCPS email daily, reading their Canvas announcements, and reviewing all school communications. Our main form of communication is our Pirate Press newsletters which are sent on a weekly basis during the school year so that the whole community can read about the great things our children and teachers are doing. In addition to that we use the following as other main sources of communication for families: PRHS website, facebook, instagram, and twitter.
