TUESDAY, JANUARY 19, 2021

GENERAL:

  • COVID SAFETY: Officials are advising that now is a time to be extra aware of the practices we have to reduce the spread of Covid-19. There have been some recent school exposures in Victoria and Duncan, and we need to do all we can to keep our school community safe. Please be sure you are doing the following:
    • daily health check for symptoms – and stay home if you feel unwell (contact 811 for a health assessment)
    • wash (or sanitize) hands frequently
    • wear your mask in all common areas (please don’t wait to be told to do this, it is just expected now)
    • do not linger in halls/stairwells/bathrooms/etc. Breaks are to be outdoors in your grade’s designated area (unless a teacher has given you permission to be in their classroom). 

Thank you. We understand that these measures have been in place a long time, but they are required by the health authority and are meant to keep you and the whole school as safe as possible.

  • YEARBOOK CLASS REMINDER: See you after school today at 2:30! Please let me (Mrs. Tuffin) know if you can’t make it. Thanks!
  • REPORT CARD ENVELOPES DUE INTO THE OFFICE:   Reminder to please bring in the signed envelopes to the office, keep your report card at home.
  • LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT REWARD TO YOURSELF for making it through this unprecedented year? Look no further! What you really need is a yearbook!  The yearbook class has been busy documenting the classes and activities of the year and the book will be delivered in June. This awesome book is $65 before January 31st, or $70 if you wait until after to buy.  You will need to buy online this year, so google “Pacific Christian School Jostens Yearbook” and it will take you to the page where you can buy your book!  There is also a link in the PCS Thumbnail that your parents get.
