COVID-19 Resources

Porter-Leath empowers children and families to achieve a healthy, optimal and independent lifestyle. To ensure the health and safety of our students, families and employees, Porter-Leath preschool sites will remain closed and most program services will be provided remotely until further notice. While no COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) exposures have been identified, this closure and move to remote services is a proactive and preemptive measure. Porter-Leath will continue actively monitoring for updates related to COVID-19, while thoroughly sanitizing all facilities.

Discovery, prevention and treatment of COVID-19 has changed the lives of families, children and caregivers across the globe. As our worlds evolve into a "new normal," we are committed to providing assistance to children and families whenever possible.

Porter-Leath has created a hotline to supplement our remote programming. Porter-Leath families can reach a member of our staff during normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 8:00 to 4:30 PM) by calling (901) 577-2500 and choosing Option 4.

Two NEW Ways To View Instructional Content Via Television

Beginning Thursday, March 26, the Mid-South news leader, WMC Action News 5, will broadcast Shelby County Schools’ teacher lessons on its multicast station Bounce. Bounce is broadcast over the air on channel 5.2 and on Comcast Cable channel 906. The daily broadcast schedule will include SCS produced Pre-K through 12th grade lessons, activities and resources aligned to the same standards and assignments students would normally be working on at this point in the school year. The lessons focus on English/Language Arts (ELA), Science and Math. As the lessons are archived, students and families will have unlimited access to a video library.

Starting Monday, April 6th, Memphis’ PBS Station, WKNO, will deliver two hours of programming with high-quality instructional content from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. CST. Four hours of content will also be streamed overnight, which viewers can watch live or record. The Tennessee Department of Education secured a partnership with the state’s PBS stations to deliver daily instructional content for Tennessee students during COVID-19 school closures. This partnership will provide all students with access to daily learning opportunities right in their own homes.
