We love and appreciate our volunteers! PCSSD is allowing volunteers to assist with schools this year (2020-2021). However, volunteers are asked to follow the PCSSD protocols put in place during COVID-19. Additionally, volunteers are asked to follow any school-specific guidelines put in place by building administrators. If volunteer who enters the building with the expectation of being inside for more than 15 minutes, must complete the building entry screening survey. This is the same screening protocol that staff complete each day. Of course, volunteers can assist without being in the school building, too. Please use this form to record any volunteer hours this school year. Thank you! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc3o2IyWFTyhGU-4ORP-izsjmcnodvIxa8vk5f6kUZv7VpO9A/viewform

Arrival Procedure. It's "Back to School" time! This is Principal Burgess and I have important information regarding the first day of school. This year our arrival procedure has been modified. School starts at 8:45. Student drop off begins at 8:15. All bus riders will enter through the cafeteria. 6th and 7th graders will remain in the caferteria until the start of school. The cafeteria entrance is for 6th and 7th grade car riders as well as 8th grade car riders that choose to eat breakfast. All 8th graders and 7th grade athletes that are car riders and do not want breakfast may be dropped off at the gym entrance. All 8th graders will remain in the gym until school starts. All cars will enter the campus through the main gate and exit through the gym gate, same as before. Staff will be on site to direct traffic. All students will have their temperature checked each day before entering school. Please make it a practice to check your child each morning for fever. If they are running a fever they should stay home and you should notify the school. Dismissal from School Procedure. Now I have important information regarding school dismissal. This year our dismissal procedure has been modified as well. School ends at 4:05 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. It ends at 1:00 on Wednesdays. In order to maintain physical distancing guidelines, student movement will be supervised and controlled. Students that are bus riders will be dismissed by bus route according to bus arrival. Students that are car riders will be dismissed by grade level. This will be a staggered dismissal. All car riders will exit through the cafeteria, no exceptions. 6th graders will be dismissed to the car lane at 3:55, 7th graders will be dismissed to the car lane at 4:00 and 8th graders will be dismissed to the car lane at 4:05. All times are approximate. I ask that you arrive to campus in the order of this schedule for smoother transition of car pick up and exit off of campus. All cars will enter the campus through the main gate and exit through the gym gate, same as before. Staff will be on site to direct traffic. Student check out cannot be accommodated past 3:30. Please do your best to schedule regular appointments for your child outside of school time whenever possible. See you Monday!!!
