Bantam Blast

Fall 2020

Welcome Bantams!

Wonderful Bantams,

Can you believe it is already the start of school? We are so excited to see you. We hope you had a fun, safe summer.

As you know we are starting the year in full Distance Learning. We will be having a Drive Thru Orientation on August 6th. This includes dropping off your iPad (if you have one), picking up information and getting a new ChromeBook. Below you will find out more information.

Since we are practicing social distancing guidelines, we are postponing pictures until it is safe. We are also waiting until we come back to have PE clothes available.

There have been several calls and emails regarding clubs. Please tell students to watch their email a couple weeks after school starts for a survey on what clubs they want.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us!

Stay safe and healthy,

Kelly O'Neil Kriss, Principal (

Danna Rocca, Assistant Principal (

Drive Thru Orientation - August 6th

What to expect...

Mark your calendar... August 6th is Drive Thru Orientation.

Procedures: At your assigned time (and ONLY at your assigned time) you will drive through the visitor parking lot, to the center circle in front of the school. Your first stop is to drop off your iPad (if you have one). The second stop is to get your packet (class schedule, bell schedule, books, etc.). Your final stop is to get your new ChromeBook. You will then exit onto Bantam Drive. The route will be clearly marked with cones and signs. Also see the map below.

No one is to get out of their car. Masks must be worn. Students do not have to be present... although we would love to see you from a distance.

Please come at your assigned time. Your packet will not be available at any other time on the 6th. If you have an issue or have multiple students at PJHS, please contact me ( directly by August 3rd.

A Little More Info...

Our new way of communication will be ParentSquare. Watch for an email from PCS inviting you to join. It should be coming your way in the next week.

There have been lots of emails and phone calls regarding schedules and classes. We are working hard to schedule all students. Please be patient if you haven't heard back from us.

Since our campus was lonely this summer we had a few projects done. Check out our new seating areas. We got new roofing over most of our breezeways. We are landscaping the area at the end of the E wing. Also we updated our fencing by E wing and the Student Store. Pictures are below.

We look forward to seeing on Zoom!
