Absent Work for Students

If your child will be absent for two or more days...

Please email your child's teacher if you would like work for them to do at home. Your child's teacher will get a chrome book & work ready to be picked up in the front office.

Emails can be found HERE on our school website.

Safety Drills

Practice fire drills this week!

Our students will participate in a practice fire drill this week. It is our goal to prepare, not scare our students with these drills.

Thursday, our 3rd, 4th & 5th graders will have a practice fire drill.

Friday, our PreK, Kinder, 1st & 2nd graders will have a practice fire drill.

Food 4 Kids

Fall 2021 Food4Kids Program at Pacific Ridge

Dear Parents/Guardians:

When children are hungry, they aren't able to focus on the job of learning. The Food4Kids Seaside Program is available to help! This program is designed for children who attend Pacific Ridge Elementary School and may not have enough food on the weekends. The volunteers at Food4Kids provide a backpack or bag filled with food on the last school day before each weekend. Students will bring this food home from school on Fridays.

Please call our school office if you have any questions! If you have more than one child in need of a food bag, please fill out this form for each child.

Food bags will begin on Friday, October 8th.

When to keep your child home from school

We are SO excited to have students back on-site 5 days per week for the entire school day! In order to continue to be able to keep our doors open to all students we need your help! If your child has any of the below symptoms, please keep them home until they are 24 hours symptom free without medication.

In addition, if anyone in your household is sick, please keep your students at home and contact a healthcare professional for guidance. You can also reach out to our school nurse, Mrs. Tobi Boyd if you have questions. Her contact information is included in this newsletter.

Thank you in advance!

Lost & Found

Please help us!

Our weather is often cool in the morning and warm at recess. Students often take sweatshirts, sweaters and jackets off and then forget to pick them up. Our recess staff give many reminders, but we still have a few items that go unclaimed.

Please help us by writing your child's first and last name inside of sweatshirts, jackets and any other items (water bottles, etc.) so we can get them quickly returned to your child. At the end of the month we will donate unclaimed items without names.

Thank you!
