Food Drive Feb. 6-10

February 6-10 is our annual PCMA Elementary Schools' Food Drive. Each PLSD elementary school will be collecting items for our local food pantry which serves residents of the PLSD. We are planning to collect the following items each day:

Monday: Adult Toiletries: toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorants

Tuesday: Baby/Toddler items: diapers (high need), wipes, baby foods

Wednesday: Canned fruits and vegetables

Thursday: Canned soups, beans, or other canned items

IMPORTANT End of Day Dismissal Procedures

It is VERY important that your child’s dismissal procedure remain consistent, however, we understand that there may be times that these plans will need to be changed. If you must change the way your child is to be dismissed, we ask that all changes be made in writing. Please send a note to your child’s teacher. They will then inform the office. Telephone calls will only be accepted on an emergency basis.

Please note: It is very difficult to relay messages to classroom teachers after 3:00 pm. If you have an emergency, please call the school office at your earliest convenience. We thank you in advance for your cooperation during our Dismissal Process.

Early Dismissals Count Against Student Attendance

All early dismissals, regardless of the time of day, count against your child's attendance. If your child has an appointment, please send a note to the teacher in the morning. Last minute pick-ups, without prior notification, can disrupt the education of your student as well as others.
