  • Dear George Community,

     

    Morning Arrival

    With the arrival of daylight saving time comes the loss of light.  In order to keep everyone safe in the morning, I am asking for your support in having your child arrive to school on time, but not too early.  Unfortunately, we do not have staff available to supervise students prior to 8:55am.  Please remind your child not to enter the building prior to the 8:55am bell.

     

    Attendance

    Our staff have exciting plans and high expectations for your child’s learning.  I know that you also have many hopes and dreams for your child’s success in school and beyond. To ensure that those hopes and dreams are realized, I want to ask for your commitment to making sure your child attends school every day possible.  The evidence is clear: children with good attendance are more likely to be successful in school. High attendance rates are linked to high student achievement.  This is true for every grade – elementary, middle, and high school students.

     

    SBAC Opt-Out Option

    The Smarter Balance Tests are mandated by the state and the content contained in the state forms and ODE Notice for Statewide Tests does not necessarily reflect the views of PPS.  Parents/guardians who wish to opt out their child from state tests must inform their school office.  More information for how to opt out will be going out soon.  Also, the state form to opt out can be obtained in the front office or online: http://www.pps.net/Page/1651.

     

    Inclement Weather

    The district wants to remind you that the safety of our students and staff is a priority and in preparation, we’d like to share some reminders about how you can access information about inclement weather:

    • PPS will email and call families and staff to share information about any delays or closures.
    • PPS will post information on our home page, as well as all school websites
    • You can receive text alerts about school delays and closures by texting “YES” to 68453
    • Check your local news stations in the morning before school to see if there are any updates
