This is an important message from Page County Public Schools. This morning, ALL schools, division-wide, are experiencing internet outages. Due to this, we are also unable to make or receive phone calls. This problem is with our vendor and not the school system. We know the internet provider is working to get us back online, but we have no estimate of how long the outage will last at this time. Thank you for your patience and understanding. PCPS
