Portsmouth, N.H.— With a new school year starting Monday, August 26th, City Officials are reminding motorists to be alert and to watch for crossing guards at key locations around the city. Crossing guards with vests and signs assist students and their guardians who are walking and biking to school on busy City streets. Drivers are urged to use caution near school neighborhoods, plan routes away from heavy school traffic if travel is time-sensitive, and to obey posted school speed limits and crossing guard signals.

Since 2006, the Welfare Department has been conducting a back to school drive to assure that every child in the City of Portsmouth has the tools they need to begin a successful school year. The first day of school is just a few short weeks away. We are always in need of sturdy backpacks for older kids. Currently, we are low on markers, pencil sharpeners, and dividers for three ring binders. Thank you for your generosity.
