02/06/2021

As communicated on 1/22, as part of the state’s COVID vaccination plan, school personnel will be vaccinated through the month of February. This is an effort to increase the opportunity for schools to remain open throughout the rest of the school year.

The original dates provided for PCLS staff vaccinations have changed. Instead of 2/18 and 2/19, PCLS staff vaccinations will now occur on Thursday, February 25 and Friday, February 26. February 18 and 19 will return to being “normal” instructional days, and all students will participate in remote learning on February 25 and 26.

On these remote learning days, there will not be live lessons. Rather, learning activities will be posted to Google Classrooms for students to complete. Extracurricular activities will proceed as scheduled unless notified otherwise by the coach/advisor. Auburn students will receive information about classes on these days.

While these dates are more “firm”, the possibility of further change still exists, based on the availability of the vaccine. If another change is necessary, we should know no later than Monday, 2/22.

Because the vaccine requires two doses, the district will need to enact the same remote learning plan three or four weeks after the first round. As soon as the district receives direction regarding this second round, details will be communicated to families.

Again, thank you for your ongoing flexibility and understanding. While this presents another disruption, it is in the interest of reducing the likelihood of additional disruption through the end of the year.

As part of the state’s COVID vaccination plan, school personnel will be vaccinated through the month of February. This is an effort to increase the opportunity for schools to remain open throughout the rest of the school year. PCLS has been given the tentative dates of Thursday, February 18 and Friday, February 19 to conduct staff vaccinations. In order to get all staff vaccinated, all students will participate in remote learning on these days. This information is being provided to families with as much advance notice as possible so that they have the opportunity to plan accordingly.

On these remote learning days, there will not be live lessons. Rather, learning activities will be posted to Google Classrooms for students to complete. Extracurricular activities will proceed as scheduled unless notified otherwise by the coach/advisor. Auburn students will still report as scheduled unless notified otherwise by Auburn.

These are tentative dates, so the possibility exists that they may change based upon the availability of the vaccine. Our dates should be confirmed no later than February 13. If there is any change, it will be communicated as soon as the district is notified.

Because the vaccine requires two doses, the district will need to enact the same remote learning plan approximately four weeks after the first round. As soon as the district receives direction regarding this second round, details will be communicated to families.

Thank you for your ongoing flexibility and understanding. While this presents another disruption, it is in the interest of reducing the likelihood of additional disruption through the end of the year.

01/07/2021

Based on the Lake County COVID data released today, it is appropriate for our in-person learners to return to school buildings this Monday, January 11. Those students who are registered as online learners will continue with remote learning. Please be certain that in-person learners remember to bring their Chromebooks with them when they report to school.

It is important to understand that, though we are returning to in-person learning, the need to be extremely careful and vigilant very much remains. Our buildings are ready to safely receive students, and we will continue with all of the precautions we’ve had in place all year, but everyone still needs to closely follow necessary guidelines of limiting contact, wearing masks, and staying home if ill. Our ability to remain in-session and to be able to provide for all of the activities we want to make available in the second semester depends on this.

We are excited to have our in-person learners back, and are ready for a successful second semester. Again, in-person learners return to school this Monday, January 11, while online learners continue with remote learning. Thank you.

12/29/2020

Under the strong advisement of the Lake County General Health District, PCLS has made the decision to extend fully remote learning until January 11. All students will participate in remote learning Tuesday, January 5 through Friday, January 8. In-person learners are now scheduled to report to school beginning Monday, January 11.

The reason for this extension is to provide a full ten days of isolation after the holidays before re-gathering at school. We know that there is an eagerness to return to in-person learning. However, given the uncertainty of the impact of holiday gatherings on local COVID conditions, school districts across Lake County and the Health District believe that the relatively minimum four day extension of remote learning is worth the sacrifice in order to give us the best chance of a strong, safe opening of the second semester.

We are urging staff, students, and families to utilize this time to remain socially distanced and to take all necessary precautions as much as possible to allow us to start in-person learning with a “clean slate” on January 11. If we all approach the situation with care and responsibility, we will best position ourselves to be able to remain open without disruption, and to return to scheduled activities in the second semester.

Again, we recognize the great value of students having the opportunity to attend school in-person, and the strain that fully-remote learning can place on families. We will continue to do everything we can to safely open--and remain opened--for in-person learning. As always, thank you for your patience and cooperation.

PCLS Families,

As a reminder, Monday, December 21 is the final school day of the first semester. We will then be on winter break until we return on January 5. Our current plan is for in-person learners to return to in-person learning at that time. We will continue to monitor conditions to determine if this is appropriate.
