Spring Break and Emergency Closure Days

Thankfully, we did not have to close the school this year for a power shutdown. This means our spring break will extend into the week that was scheduled to be used in the event of a power shutdown. Please see the spring break schedules below, and remember that our school calendars are always available on the PCS website.

Spring break will be two weeks from March 27th-April 7th.
