Next week we will have our Good News Book Fair! Students will be attending the Book Fair during their STREAM class next week (November 14-18). More information to come!

Middle School parents, your children are in class until 3:05 and then they return to homeroom. Please plan to pick them up no earlier than 3:10. Our holding area is filling up by 2:55 with middle school parents who have arrived too early. If you come for your children prior to 3:10, we will need to have you circle around the line again. Thank you for your cooperation!
Parents of students in grades 3-5, your children are not dismissed until 2:55. Please plan to pick them up no earlier than that. If you arrive prior to 2:55 for a 3rd-5th grade student, you will be asked to circle around the lot again.
Finally, if your child is at Angels After Hours, and you are coming to regular pick-up, please designate that in the PikMyKid app.
Thank you for your help in getting our students dismissed promptly and safely.
Congratulations, PCA Alumni!

Siblings of positive cases may continue coming to school as long as they are not exhibiting ANY symptoms. Please use good judgment when sending siblings to school based on the amount of exposure they have had with the positive sibling.
