Qualtrics - Health Screening

Please be sure to complete the Qualtrics Health Screening for your child each school day BEFORE they come on campus. An email is sent each morning to your child's school email address with a link to the health screening, you can also access it here: QUALTRICS link ~ OR we have the QR code posted at each of the entrance gates that you can scan with your phone to complete the survey. Thank you so much for helping us keep our students safe and healthy.

Toys and Candy at school

PES Families ~

We have seen an increase in students bringing toys and candy to school and are asking for your help.

Please remember that toys (pop-its, fidgets, electronic toys, cards, sports equipment, etc) are not allowed at school. We know that pop-its and fidgets especially are very popular right now and that kids want to trade them and play with them, however, they cause a distraction at school. Please have your children keep toys at home. If they would like to trade with a friend and it is ok with you, they may trade them at home, rather than at school. Further, we provide sports equipment for students to use at school and request that they keep their personal baseballs, bouncy balls, etc at home. Your assistance with this is greatly appreciated and supports our focus on teaching and learning.

Additionally, we understand that sweet treats are popular this time of year. We do ask that you limit the amount of sugary treats/candy that your child brings in their lunch, backpack, and/or pockets. A single treat for students to enjoy after they eat their lunch is plenty for one school day. Even better would be to save the sweet treats/candy for at home. Thank you in advance for your help with this.

Please LABEL student items

As the weather turns colder we are seeing an increase in the number of sweaters, sweatshirts, and jackets that end up in our lost and found bin. If the item has a name on it, we return it to them, but there are many items without a name.

PLEASE PUT YOUR CHILD'S NAME ON JACKETS, SWEATSHIRTS, AND SWEATERS in addition to lunch boxes and water bottles.

Thank you!

Safety at Arrival and Dismissal

We need your help to keep all Panthers safe at school!

If you are dropping off or picking up students in the school loops, it is important to always be focused on safety.

  • Please remember to stay in your car, be alert.
  • Please move forward as directed by the school staff.
  • Students have been instructed to move forward and look for their rides. Pulling all the way to the front of the line without leaving gaps is the best way to ensure that all students are dismissed in a timely manner. We will make sure that your student finds you as soon as possible.
  • Please proceed through the loop in a line. Going around the line and cutting into empty spots is dangerous as we have students entering and exiting cars all throughout the loop as well as students and families who are using the crosswalks.
We appreciate your continued cooperation and patience.

Birthday Celebrations

At this time, we cannot permit food to be brought in to share with classmates as part of a birthday celebration. We absolutely wish to recognize and celebrate our students' birthdays!

If you would like to send something in to celebrate your child's birthday, please consider non-food items such as bookmarks, pencils, shape erasers, or another non-food item. Additionally, we do have a Birthday Book donation program. You can read more about it here:

Masks and Water Bottles

Please remember to send your child to school with a mask and a water bottle each day. We have some replacement masks but are going through them at an exceptionally quick rate. It is recommended that students come to school with a mask to wear that day as well as a backup mask in their backpack that they can use should their mask become soiled or lost.

Also, all water fountains are closed at this time due to health and safety concerns. Students have access to faucets to fill their water bottles as needed.

Thank you in advance for your help in sending your children to school with masks and water bottles each day. Thank you!
