Pleasant Valley Family Newsletter

October 15, 2021

Our mission is to empower and inspire a community of lifelong learners and leaders!

Dear Pleasant Valley Families,

Thank you parents and guardians that volunteered to support our Pumpkin Fall Run. All slots have been filled!

There will no school on Friday, October 22nd for students. School resumes on Monday, October 25th.

We are hiring noon monitors if you would like to work with our Stars for a couple of hours every day! Adults that are interested can apply at Frontline Parma City School District.

Click here to read PCSD's COVID Protocols for 2021-22. Parents need to check their children for symptoms before they leave for school each day and keep them home if they are sick or exhibit any of the symptoms listed in the SYMPTOM CHECK area of the document. Masks are mandatory on buses and now mandatory inside the school. We will distance to the extent possible in the school.

Thank you for helping to make Pleasant Valley the wonderful school that it is! As always, I want to thank you for your partnership with Pleasant Valley! We are very appreciative of all of you! Should you ever have any questions, concerns, or just a great idea you would like to share, please email me at or call the main office at 440.885.2380 weekdays from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Very Sincerely,

Mrs. Stephanie Boka
