Welcome PCS Families!!
As we prepare to open our doors for another school year, I'd like to welcome everyone back and say how excited we are to meet all of our new students and families at PCS. I would like to introduce myself, my name is Aaron O'Connor and I am the Interim Principal for the 2021/2022 school year at PCS. I was formerly the grade 5 and 6 math and science teacher at PCS before leaving to pursue the necessary experience needed to return to a position such as this. It is my belief that open communication supports positive school experiences for all and can prevent many potential issues. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns that may come up (email@example.com or 978-724-3363). The teachers have been working hard to get their rooms set up and looking great for student's arrival next week (8/30 for grades 1-6 and 9/2 for K). As a way to introduce myself, I would like to invite all students and families to "Popsicle on the Playground" this coming Sunday, August 29th from 4:00-5:00 p.m. This will be held at the main entrance to the school near the playground. I plan on having traditional Freezepops but if anyone has a health or allergy concern please let me know so that I can provide an alternative.
In this newsletter, I want to take some time to go over the necessary information you will all need to have a successful start to the school year including masking protocols, drop-off and pick-up times, lunch and breakfast, bussing, staffing changes, etc. We have a lot going on so I'm sure there will be new information coming in as we get closer and I will try my best to get it to you as quickly as I can.
Pick-up and Drop-off
This year we will only be using the main front entrance and no longer using the side entrance for our K-2 students. Drop-off time in the morning will begin at 8:15 for those not eating breakfast and 8:05 ONLY for those students eating breakfast, any student arriving after 8:25 will be marked as tardy. The pick-up time will begin at 2:50.
