Pleasant Valley Family Newsletter

February 26, 2021

Our mission is to empower and inspire a community of lifelong learners and leaders!

Hello Pleasant Valley Families,


Our staff has had the option of receiving the COVID-19 Vaccinations. The first was on Presidents' Day. The second vaccination will be given on March 8th. Therefore, March 9, will be a remote learning day for all students. Our teachers will post assignments in Google Classroom for students to access during the school day. We will return to our regular Hybrid Calendar and schedules on March 10th.

  • 3.10 Green Cohort
  • 3.11 & 12 White Cohort


Please remember that if COVID-19 has impacted your child by either testing positive or being a primary contact to someone who has, you must keep them home and notify our nursing staff of the next steps. It goes without saying that any students exhibiting symptoms should remain home for at least 24 hours until symptom-free. Below is a link to our Health and Safety Plan. These are community pledges that we can all live by! Our nursing staff can be reached at 440-843-1531 or email steeleb@parmacityschools.org.


Please call (440) 885-2380 from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm as our office staff will assist if you have any questions. Thank you for your ongoing support and partnership!
