PCIA REOPENING PLANS FOR FALL 2020 July 29, 2020 Dear current and future PCIA students and families, At this time, PCIA is still committed to opening up in-person starting this school year unless prohibited from doing so by the governor or local health official. We are confident in the safety measures we have drafted for submission to the state's Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) to keep our students and staff as safe as possible as they return to our school building next month. However, we are paying close attention to the ever-changing guidelines, recommendations, and metrics, and will always make decisions based on the health and safety of students and staff as our top priority, in addition to providing superior education. Here are the safety measures we will be implementing:
All staff, faculty, and students will be required to wear masks or face shields;
All staff and students will submit (via app) a health symptom survey prior to arrival at school;
We will be taking temperatures every morning prior to students and staff entering the school building;
Hand washing and/or sanitizing stations will be readily available for use; and
We will be configuring classrooms to ensure students maintain proper social distancing requirements.
We ask you to also do your part by keeping your students home if they show any symptoms of illness. By everyone working together, we will be able to continue meeting in person. However, as a backup, we have created a robust online/distance learning model that we can quickly shift to in order to provide continuous learning for our students in the event that our school is required to close.
We are excited to see your smiling (but masked) faces August 26th! If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Superintendent Bob Rogers (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Kaylene Herman, Dean of Students/Academic Advisor (email@example.com) for enrollment or scheduling assistance. Go Owls! Bob Rogers Superintendent
