Character Strong - Family Dares

I hope you all had a chance to participate in last week's family dare: No More Chores.

Please consider joining us in this week's family dare: Identity Alignment. Our 7th graders will be challenged to participate in this next week.

All Students Learn Remotely April 20: 2nd Dose Vaccination Clinic for Staff

In collaboration with Truman Medical Center, the District will be holding our second-dose, closed COVID-19 vaccination clinic for staff on Tuesday, April 20, 2021.

PCR-3's staff vaccination clinics will be required work days for staff; but to allow every PCR-3 employee who wants the COVID-19 vaccine, ALL students will participate in their learning remotely, using an AMI-X day on April 20. There will be no live instruction for students, and this day will not be made up.

Community members are encouraged to visit and register for vaccinations via Missouri's COVID-19 Vaccine Navigator.
