Happy New Year!


We are excited to see students back after winter break. As a reminder please email oceanattendance@ptschools.org or call 360-379-4272 if your student will be absent from class. We are tracking daily attendance in Skyward and this will help us know why students are out if any follow up is needed.


High school students semester ends January 28. Families should check grades in the Google Classrooms and work with your student and teachers to ensure work has been turned in and is complete. Families should reach out directly to teachers with any concerns. Students needing extra help or wanting some focused work time are invited to attend Friday study hall from 12-2pm in Kyle and Katie's class.


We have a few spaces for new students to join OCEAN K-12 for second semester. If you know of an interested family you can invite them to attend an Open House Info Session on January 11 at 6:30pm in Daniel's Classroom. Interested students and families can also reach out to me directly or complete an application online to join.


Take Care,
