PARENTS of our PRIDE
Soooooo ..... what is happening?
Meanwhile, with covid positivity rates rising, the district did follow the Governor's process and applied for a waiver which would allow us to start 100% remote. The waiver was granted. However, that is not the same as a decision. Our school board will meet Saturday morning at 9am. Here is the zoom link if you'd like to watch.
I expect we'll know Saturday morning whether we'll start in the hybrid model or the 100% remote model. We are definitely having school beginning September 8 -- we just have to find out how.
Material Distribution: Wednesday, September 2
Student Material Pick Up & Computer Roll Out
4:00-7:00 Student Material Pick Up for All
4-5 pm Last Names A-I
5-6 pm Last Names J-R
6-7 pm Last Names S-Z
We will have gathered some essential materials including a device for each student and then families will drive through to pick them up. This will work much like the pick up of student belongings back in the spring.
Families will drive through the south carline.
Please put a sign with your child's last name in your window. Make it big and bold.
We'll give you:
- a chrome book (unless you already have one. You don't need to do anything to request one.)
- log in information,
- reading and math materials
- a planner for students in grades 3 -6.
You may also pick up
- school supplies (if you ordered through the PTO in the spring)
- student belongings if you missed getting them in the spring

Elementary school hours are 7:55am-2:55pm, with each Wednesday dismissing an hour early at 1:55pm.
AND, you can expect a lot more details next week.
If you ordered a school supply pack through the PTO, we'll hand that out to you during the Materials Distribution event.
If you have chosen Standard Enrollment, please label ALL your child's belongings clearly. We will need to keep a tighter rein on lost and found items. Items that are not labeled will be donated after 10 days.
The Leaders of the Pack: PENN PTO
- a mask with our logo
- a lanyard to hold the mask
- a 'cup holder' for each student's desk to hold a water bottle
You can be part of this dynamic group.
Meetings are on the first Tuesday of each month at 7pm
The first virtual PTO meeting will be Tuesday, October 6th and will most likely be by zoom.
Whether you are learning from home or in school, wear your Penn panther gear proudly. Please check out the following link to purchase Penn gear from the Penn PTO. All orders are due by September 14th. To avoid any potential pickup problems orders will be shipped directly to your homes. Thank you!
