• As a reminder, here are the bus options (dial 401-625-5562 for direct access to the Little Compton/Tiverton First Student bus yard)  the Little Compton School Department provides its high school students attending PHS.  

    • PHS MORNING EXPRESS:  The express bus leaves Wilbur McMahon School every day at 6:45 a.m. This option can be used by any Little Compton PHS student at any time.

    • REGULAR SCHOOL DAY PICK-UP AND DROP-OFF: All Little Compton PHS students can get picked up and dropped off at their designated bus stops.

    • FIRST LATE BUS: If your high school student needs to stay after school for a short time, we provide a late bus that picks students up at the high school at 3:05  p.m. and leaves PHS at 3:15 p.m. It brings those students to Wilbur McMahon School arriving by 4:15 p.m.

    • SECOND LATE BUS: If your high school students needs to stay after school for a longer amount of time, we provide a late bus that picks students up at the high school at 5 p.m. and leaves PHS at 5:10 p.m. It brings those students to Wilbur McMahon School arriving by 5:40 p.m.

    Also, for students who need a quiet place to study  or just need a safe place to stay while waiting for the late bus, the Portsmouth High School library is open after school every day until 5 p.m. NOTE: during the pandemic, the "Old Gym" has been converted into PHS' second cafeteria, and 2:15pm to 5pm -- Monday through Friday -- after-school supervision has now moved there in order to ensure optimal social distancing (it was held in the PHS Library in previous years).

    All of these options are available as of the first day of school, Wednesday, September 8.
