Portland Public Schools is offering a new feature they can use to get answers to their questions and concerns on any issue during the shutdown: a HelpLine phone line and email. The HelpLine phone number is: 207-874-8159. That HelpLine phone line has access to different languages. They can also send us an email in their primary language at ppshelpline@portlandschools.org
