    Distance Learning Playlist Information

    Portsmouth Middle School will provide students with weekly Distance Learning Playlists.

These Distance Learning Playlists will be posted on Monday, March 23rd and Monday March 30th at 8:00am on students’ Google Classrooms. We will continue to update you for the weeks after March 30th per the Rhode Island Department of Education. Please have your student locate their teacher on the list below and go to their Google Classroom to receive their Distance Learning Playlist for the week.
