PLA@103's #1 Goal is ensuring the school increases by a minimum 10% PROFICIENCY per year in both ELA and math on the state accountability test.

Our statewide assessments (IREAD and ILEARN) are quickly approaching. All scholars in grades 3-6 will participate in these tests. Teachers, staff, and scholars have been working hard all year to prepare for these tests, and we will continue to do so.

As parents/guardians, YOU can help your scholar do their very best on the assessments.

* assure your child is getting a good night's sleep

* make school attendance a top priority

* read with your child or have your child read to you

We'll share more ways you can help in the next newsletter.

PLA@103 Continues to Adhere to a Mask Policy

All staff and scholars at PLA@103 are required to wear a mask at all times. Masks are to be worn properly, covering the nose and mouth, unless an individual is eating or drinking. Teachers will be reaching out to families if a scholar does not adhere to the mask policy. If non-compliance continues, scholars will be referred to the deans.

Please do your best to make sure your scholar is bringing a mask to school each and every day.

Important COVID Vaccine Information


CDC recommends everyone ages 5 and older get a COVID-19 vaccine to help protect against COVID-19.

Looking for information about COVID-19 vaccines visit; or Call 1-800-232-0233

Find a free COVID-19 vaccine near you CALL 1-800-232-0233 or TEXT your zip code to 438829. You will receive a text with places that offer vaccines and possibly a free ride to the vaccine clinic. The COVID-19 vaccine is FREE!

COVID-19 Vaccine Dosage and Administration for Children and Teens

  • Adolescents ages 12 years and older receive the same dosage of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine as adults.

  • The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for children ages 5 through 11 years has the same active ingredients as the vaccine given to adults and adolescents. However, children ages 5 through 11 years cannot get the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine given to adults and adolescents. In addition, children ages 5 through 11 years receive an age-appropriate dose that is one-third of the adult dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. Smaller needles, designed specifically for children, are also used for children ages 5 through 11 years.

  • Unlike many medications, COVID-19 vaccine dosage does not vary by patient weight but by age on the day of vaccination.

  • Your child will need a second shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine three weeks after their first shot.

Preparing Children and Teens for Vaccination

The experience of getting a COVID-19 vaccine will be very similar to the experience of getting routine vaccines.

· Talk to your child before vaccination about what to expect.

· It is NOT recommended you give pain relievers before vaccination to try to prevent side effects.

· Tell the doctor or nurse about any allergies your child may have.

To prevent fainting and injuries related to fainting, your child should be seated or lying down during vaccination and for 15 minutes after the vaccine is given. After your child’s COVID-19 vaccination, you will be asked to stay for 15–30 minutes so your child can be observed in case they have a severe allergic reaction and need immediate treatment.

After Your Child’s COVID-19 Vaccination

Your child may have some side effects, which are normal signs that their body is building protection.

On the arm where your child got the shot: Pain, Redness, Swelling

Throughout the body: Tiredness, Headache, Muscle pain, Chills, Fever, Nausea

These side effects may affect your child’s ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. Some people have no side effects and severe allergic reactions are rare. Ask your child’s healthcare provider for advice on using a non-aspirin pain reliever and other steps you can take at home after your child gets vaccinated. In general, aspirin is not recommended for use in children and adolescents less than 18 years of age. Placing a cool, damp cloth or ice pack on the injection site can help with discomfort. Once your child has received both vaccines make sure to get a copy to your school nurse and doctor.

For any more information and or questions feel free to call Nurse Sara at 317-226-4103.

Please find updated information regarding masks and COVID from Nurse Sara below.


Phalen Leadership Academies is very proactive in reassuring all masks are worn, and following all the guidelines from Marion County Health Department / Indiana Department of Health in providing direction to current situations as they arise. We are actively sanitizing and disinfecting all areas/spaces that could have been infected and lead to any further preventions. Moving forward, PLA families will receive a message any day a positive confirmation has been brought to the administration's attention which can impact all scholars.

Due to our scholars currently eating in the classrooms with masks off during meal time we will contact trace those scholars 6ft around the COVID-19 positive scholar. If your scholar has been identified as a close contact then they are required to quarantine for 10 days and will be given a return date by the school nurse. Scholars will be sent home with homework to be working on during time out of school and attendance will be excused.

Close Contact Tracing

An individual is a close contact if UNVACCINATED and meets one of the following:

● If anyone in the classroom is unmasked and individual is within 6 feet of a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more within a 24-hour period

● If all individuals are masked in the classroom, an individual is a close contact only if fewer than 3 feet from the person who tested positive for COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more in a 24-hour period

● In all other areas of the school environment, any unvaccinated individuals within 6 feet of a person diagnosed with COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more in a 24-hour period.

● Vaccinated close contacts do not have to quarantine but should monitor for symptoms, isolate and get tested if symptoms develop

If there was a positive COVID-19 case in the classroom those scholars are still considered close contacts, but DO NOT NEED to QUARANTINE unless contacted by our school nurse. We do ask that you PLEASE monitor your scholar for COVID-19 symptoms for the next 14 days. If symptoms develop you should immediately self-isolate the ENTIRE family and strongly encourage getting tested. Please call the nurse to discuss quarantine time and return date. If you have any questions or need more clarification please contact our school nurse.

Thank you for continuing to help keep our entire school safe.

Estimados Padres de PLA @ 103:

Las Academias de Liderazgo Phalen son muy proactivas para asegurar que se usen todas las máscaras y seguir todas las pautas del Departamento de Salud del Condado de Marion / Departamento de Salud de Indiana para brindar orientación a las situaciones actuales a medida que surgen. Estamos desinfectando y desinfectando activamente todas las áreas / espacios que podrían haber sido infectados y dar lugar a más prevenciones.

En el futuro, las familias de PLA recibirán un mensaje cualquier día que se haya informado a la administración de una confirmación positiva que puede afectar a todos los estudiantes.

Debido a que nuestros estudiantes actualmente comen en las aulas sin máscaras durante la hora de la comida, nos pondremos en contacto con los estudiantes a 6 pies alrededor del estudiante positivo COVID-19. Si su estudiante ha sido identificado como un contacto cercano, entonces debe permanecer en cuarentena durante 10 días y la enfermera de la escuela le dará una fecha de regreso. Los estudiantes serán enviados a casa con tarea para trabajar durante el tiempo fuera de la escuela y se excusará la asistencia.

Seguimiento de Contactos Cercanos

Un individuo es un contacto cercano si NO ESTÁ VACUNADO y cumple con uno de los siguientes:

● Si alguien en el salón de clases está desenmascarado y el individuo está a menos de 6 pies, de una persona que dio positivo por COVID-19, por un total de 15 minutos o más dentro de un período de 24 horas.

● Si todas las personas están enmascaradas en el salón de clases, una persona es un contacto cercano solo si está a menos de 3 pies de la persona que dio positivo por COVID-19 por un total de 15 minutos o más en un período de 24 horas.

● En todas las demás áreas del entorno escolar, cualquier persona no vacunada a menos de 6 pies de una persona diagnosticada con COVID-19 por un total de 15 minutos o más en un período de 24 horas.

● Los contactos cercanos vacunados no tienen que ponerse en cuarentena, pero deben monitorear los síntomas, aislarlos y hacerse la prueba si se presentan síntomas.

Si hubo un caso positivo de COVID-19 en el aula, esos estudiantes todavía se consideran contactos cercanos, pero NO NECESITAN CUARENTENAR a menos que la enfermera de la escuela se comunique con ellos. Le pedimos que POR FAVOR monitoree a su estudiante para detectar síntomas de COVID-19 durante los próximos 14 días. Si se presentan síntomas, debe aislar inmediatamente a TODA la familia y animar fuertemente que se haga la prueba. Llame a la enfermera para hablar sobre el tiempo de la cuarentena y la fecha de regreso. Si tiene alguna pregunta o necesita más aclaraciones, comuníquese con la enfermera de nuestra escuela.

Gracias por continuar ayudando a mantener segura toda nuestra escuela.

Yo pral voye elèv yo lakay yo ak devwa yo pou yo travay pandan tan yo pa lekòl epi y ap eskize prezans yo. Fèmen Kont Trase Yon moun se yon kontak pwòch si UNVACCINATED ak satisfè youn nan bagay sa yo:

● Si yon moun nan sal klas la demare e endividyèl li nan yon distans 6 pye de yon moun ki teste pozitif pou COVID-19 pou yon total 15 minit oswa plis nan yon peryòd 24 èdtan

● Si tout moun maske nan salklas la, yon moun se yon kontak pwòch sèlman si mwens pase 3 pye de moun ki teste pozitif pou COVID-19 pou yon total 15 minit oswa plis nan yon peryòd 24 èdtan
