Read It Here First!

Big picture

A New Normal!?!

Families! We continue to stay mindful of all of your various needs and concerns. We know that not all issues are resolved and we fully understand that more are coming. I am super appreciative of all of your support in this time and I am very proud of your scholars adapting to this new way of education. We still, sometimes, sit here baffled of what we're required to do right now but believe me when I say, this has been a true team effort and I appreciate all of you being a part of our team!


Please read the following:

Assessments - MAP testing will end 8/18/2020. We have been reaching out to finish scheduling students for Math and Reading. If your child has not completed both tests please call the school. Also, next week, students will be given a brief Pre-Asssessment in Math and ELA to see how they are doing with Number Sense and Vocabulary. These are often 2 areas of weakness for many students. We are working as a school to help develop these skills.


Attendance - Letters will be coming home soon for those missing days and half days. We have noticed many students are not attending their Art class. Please be aware that students will receive a grade for this class that will effect their GPA. Also, 8th grade is able to obtain a half credit towards high school. Attendance can effect their ability to receive this.


Meals: Meals will be distributed on Monday this week. There will be 5 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. Please remember that you can currently see how your scholar is doing in their Google Classrooms for each class. Once in their class click on "View Assignments" and you can see what has or has not been submitted as well as their grades.


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
