Valentine’s Parties! February 12, 2021

Please send all party items including Valentine’s Cards by February 10th.

Once again, parties will look different due to safety measures during the COVID Pandemic. Teachers will oversee the parties as we continue to follow a “no visitor” policy for safety. Teachers may contact their room parent to assist with organizing a craft, game or both. The district will provide a cookie for students to take home with them.

Students will pass out Valentine’s Cards as in the past directed by the teacher. Look for more information from your child’s teacher. Thank you,
Mrs. Westfall & PLCC


Attached you will find the approved snack list. If you are planning to give a "Candy Valentine," please only send Valentine's Candy on the approved list for the safety of our students and staff.

Thank you!

  • All Meals Are Currently Free of Charge.
  • Please note: There is a charge for EXTRAS, WATERS and second MILKS
  • If you'd like your child to eat breakfast at school, we ask that they should be here between 8:10 - 8:15 am, so they do not miss out on important school time.
