GENERAL:

  • COVID-19 AND PCS: You may have heard about a Covid exposure at PCS Elementary so we just wanted to send out some reassurances about the steps we’re all taking.  
    • As we continue to wear  masks, sanitize and wash our hands, and keep an appropriate distance from others, we are all helping to minimize the spread of Covid-19 in our community. 
    • If you are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms, stay home or go home and contact a health care provider or call 8-1-1 about your symptoms. 
    • Stay safe and thanks for looking after one another.
  • KEEP TAKING CARE!! Covid numbers continue to increase in our community, and there are new school exposures daily. We need to diligently follow safety protocols. The most important things you can do include:
    • keep a distance between yourself and others; spread out!
    • wear your mask indoors, outdoors after school (and, we’d also advise it any time you aren’t distanced outdoors, even with your learning group).
    • hand-wash & sanitize.
    • always do your daily health check and stay home if you are sick.

Thank you for taking care!
