Updated PMES COVID Protocols

Based on the increase of COVID cases with the Omicron variant, I want to make you all aware of the protocols that are in place at Puckett’s Mill:

  • Masks will still be required of all students while they are in the building. Students will be able to remove masks while eating, drinking, participating in exercise, and at recess.

  • Visitors will not be allowed in the building. This includes lunch visitors and classroom volunteers.

  • Students seeking breakfast will “grab and go” and eat in their classroom.

  • Our lunch schedule will be altered to allow students to eat in the cafeteria every other day. When in the cafeteria, students will sit on one side of the table. On days when students are not eating in the cafeteria, they will take their lunch to their classroom to eat.

  • Students will be provided multiple opportunities throughout the day to wash and sanitize their hands.

  • Our custodial staff along with our teachers will frequently utilize the sanitation products provided by GCPS in classrooms and throughout the school.

School Chromebooks for Digital Learning

Students whose parents have completed the Chromebook request form will have a Chromebook sent home with them beginning Friday, January 7th, and every day following. This will become our general practice in order to ensure that all students have the materials they need at home regardless of digital or in-person instruction. On any device at home, students can access their teacher's eCLASS course page as well as programs such as Classworks, iReady, and Amplify to practice grade level concepts and skills. The students use these programs at school and will know how to access them from home via their device.

Semester 1 Report Cards

Report cards will be mailed out from the county this year. They will NOT be in Friday Folders. The county will begin mailing out report cards on Tuesday, January 18th. You can find the report card in the Documents tab of the GCPS Parent Portal starting Sunday, January 16th.
