Principal's Message

Dear Portola Families,

Welcome back to a new school year! I am excited to be the new principal of Portola Elementary and hope to work closely with you to provide our students with an outstanding elementary education experience. We will continue to celebrate the many wonderful traditions that have made Portola such a close community and, hopefully, add some new traditions as well!

Please be sure to review the Early Bird/Late Bird schedule for K-3 students as well as the schedule for the upper grades. The San Bruno Park and Recreation Department provides on-site, low cost supervision from 8:00 a.m.-9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m. for families who require child care support. Please contact the Park and Recreation Department at 650-616-7183. Flyers and registration forms are available in the Portola Office.

Thank-you for your understanding and continued support of Portola. The entire Portola Staff remain committed to providing your children with the same high quality education that has taken place in the past.
