The Portage Police Department and Charles Poches, the Portage Community School District Administrator, took the adult crossing guards out for a breakfast meeting Aug. 31 at Dino's.

Portage is very fortunate to have these dedicated folks protecting the children as they cross the streets in all different kinds of weather. Please drive carefully in the school zones making sure you have your headlights and seat belts on and be prepared to stop if needed.
