Hello Pleasant Valley Families,


What a great way to start SPRING next week with 5 days a week IN-PERSON LEARNING for both our students in the green and white cohorts!


Please remember that if COVID-19 has impacted your child by either testing positive or being a primary contact to someone who has, you must keep them home and notify our nursing staff of the next steps. It goes without saying that any students exhibiting symptoms should remain home for at least 24 hours until symptom-free. Below is a link to our Health and Safety Plan. These are community pledges that we can all live by! Our nursing staff can be reached at 440-843-1531 or email steeleb@parmacityschools.org.


Please call (440) 885-2380 from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm as our office staff will assist if you have any questions. Thank you for your ongoing support and partnership!

March 22nd 5 Day In Person Learning -- PV Updates

We are taking every measure possible for safety and social distancing.


Please read the newsletter carefully as there is new information for you.


Arrival @ 9:15am
  • We will continue with the drop-off and pick-up locations that we have been using this year. All STEM students will be dropped off by the Garden. All TRADITIONAL kids will be dropped off at the doors on the right-hand side of the building. Signs will continue to be posted out front.
  • Please have students exit the car on the sidewalk/building side. Children should NOT be exiting the car on the parking lot side as it poses a safety concern.

Breakfast
  • Breakfast will NOT be served at Pleasant Valley (with the exception of the EDC program). All other students will be offered a Free "Take Home" breakfast option beginning on March 22nd. Students will be asked each morning if they would like a breakfast to take home at the end of the day to eat for breakfast the following morning. Breakfasts will be delivered to the classrooms right before dismissal. Please have a conversation with your child about whether or not you would like them to get the FREE "Take Home" breakfast each day. Please make sure your child eats breakfast each morning before coming to school, including March 22nd.


Dismissal @ 3:30pm

  • We ask that you put your child's first and last name, as well as grade number on the paper, large enough so that our staff members can see the names at dismissal. This will help to speed up the process and ensure a smooth dismissal.


Extra Reminders

  • Please send students with a water bottle as water fountains are not being used, just water bottle refilling stations.
  • All students must have a mask when entering and inside the building. Students have been doing an awesome job remembering their masks and have been pretty good about wearing them all day. Please remind your child(ren) that masks need to cover both the mouth and nose at all times (unless eating/drinking).
