Thank you!!

Families! I want to simply thank you for your patience, flexibility and support. Technology can take anyone from 0 to 100 with frustration but working as a team always helps in these moments. As we have had internet issues and had to adapt our schedule or change how work is being assigned you have been extremely patient and flexible with us. As we have reached out to you individually we thank you for your support with your scholar and understanding all the different dynamics that are taking place. You are a vital member of this team and will remain so throughout the year!

Monday, September 7th - NO SCHOOL due to Labor Day!

2nd S.T.E.P.P. Advisory Tuesday, September 8th @ 7:00 pm: There are many computer needs and we as a staff want to hear from parents to better serve you. This Tuesday we will be discussing Google Classroom and how to navigate it smoothly for both you and your scholar. See below for the link.

Attendance - Parents, please remember, if your child is going to miss any classes this needs to be communicated to the school in order for them to be excused in our attendance system. We are required to keep attendance in the traditional manner. As we look through attendance we will be reaching out to some parents to discuss why a scholar may be missing all or part of the day. We have noticed an increase of students attending the morning session but not returning to their afternoon session. Emails and phone calls will be taking place.

Meals: Meals will be distributed on TUESDAY this week. There will be 4 day meal packs for both breakfast and lunch available from 11:00 - 1:00. Please drive around back for pick up.

Interims! Yes! Only 2 weeks from now your scholar will be half way through the quarter. Interims will be distributed the week of 9/21/2020

Help Desk: PLA has a help desk to help meet your technology needs. Please see the link below.

Calendar: Attached you will find the school calendar. We will be sure to communicate other important dates weekly
