Principal Updates

School Closeout Procedures ~ May 21, 2020

Greetings from Mrs. Hoke

Dear Parents & Guardians,

I hope that my newsletter finds everyone safe and healthy. Thank you for all your support and hard work during our Remote Learning journey. We have a few more weeks to go before we're officially off for summer vacation. Let's stay focused and get it done.


Included in this newsletter is information regarding school closing procedures and closeout. You will also receive information on medication pick up as well as an End of Year Panda Carpool Parade. To ensure the safety of our staff and learning community, parents and students are asked to remain in vehicles unless they need to enter the building for medication pickup only. While we are providing parents/guardians with an opportunity to pick up personal belongings, I would like to stress that instruction will continue until the last day of school, which is June 12th.


Stay healthy, happy and safe.

Mrs. Hoke, Principal

Photo Montage for Staff

Hello families!

The PTA board would like to thank our PRE staff & teachers with an end-of-the-year photo collection from their Panda family. To make this happen, please share ONE PHOTO per FAMILY. You can dress up, you can just take a candid shot, you can make a sign with words of appreciation....whatever strikes your fancy.


The ONE PHOTO per family should be submitted to https://share.vidday.com/o-vfhkfb by MONDAY, JUNE 1st at 5PM.


We'd love to include the families that want to be a part of this special token of our appreciation however it is in no way a requirement. By submitting a photograph you are giving permission to use the image in our photo montage and share it with our staff and school community.


Thank you for your support and have a great summer!
