Security Updates for the 2023-2024 school year

Since April, we have been paying for police presence on campus. We made arrangements with the SJCSO to have deputies sign up on their off days to be at PCA. This has worked out very well, and we now have several deputies that have become familiar with our campus.

We have made arrangements for this to continue for the 2023-2024 school year. While the cost is high, we feel that this is a definite need for the safety and security of our students and staff.

Parent Workshop coming to St. Paul's at the Beach
