Parent Teacher Conferences/Enrollment - FINAL REMINDER

Parents, the final step to 19-20 enrollment is a short conference with you, your child, and their PLT/FPL advisory teacher on February 27. After conferencing, students will be asked to enter their course requests for next year. All students have received their enrollment form (ICAP), are collecting signatures, and should bring it to the conference. Please ask your child to see their enrollment form and take a few minutes to sign up for a time to meet with your student's PLT/FPL advisory teacher to discuss your student's enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year.

If you would like to conference with any of your student's current classroom teachers, please select an open conference time on the teacher you would like to speak with as well.

Have You Opted In to Receive Text Notifications from PCR-3?

School Messenger is our automated phone calling and text notification system. We use this system to notify parents quickly for sudden changes in schedules due to emergencies, school cancellations, or just important school announcements.

Standard text messaging rates apply.

Bullying and Safety Concerns

Safety is one of our district’s top priorities and to help safeguard our school community, our district is now using SafeSchools Alert, a tip reporting service that allows students, staff, and parents to submit safety concerns to our administration.

You and your student can easily report tips on bullying, harassment, or any safety issue you're concerned about through SafeSchools Alert.

Every tip SafeSchools Alert receives about our district is immediately logged in the system and our administration is notified so that they can investigate and take appropriate action. And, tips may also be submitted anonymously if you prefer.

Together, using SafeSchools Alert, we can make our district a safer place to learn!
