We just learned from reading the PPS Pulse that the last day of school has changed. We want to make sure you are aware of this change.
Last day of school is now June 13, 2017
Due to inclement weather on December 8 and 9, the PPS Board of Directors voted at their December 13 board meeting to add two days to the end of the school year. The last day of school is now June 13, 2017. View a PDF of the 2016-17 calendar here. The impact of the snow days on December 15 and 16 will be reviewed in January.
As we move into October I wanted to make you aware of a calendar change for the month.
We are moving the book character spirit day from Wednesday, October 19th to Monday October 31st. We would love to see your creativity with a book character costume. Most characters are in book so it shouldn't be an issue. If you run into a situation where it causes drama, we will happily accept you in your chosen halloween costume. Please remember that this is a family friendly event. Avoid anything that will make our youngest friends cry. Also, do not include any weapons (knives, guns, swords…) with your costume. Teachers also ask that masks are not worn during the school day. You can put them on for the parade.
Dear PPS staff and families,
Summer has started, but we want to let you know that the PPS Task Force on the Superintendent Recruitment is continuing to meet on a regular basis and work is happening daily to advance our efforts to find and recruit our next superintendent. We have a final position description and are still actively recruiting candidates. We appreciate the feedback and candidate recommendations we have received from the community to date. Below are highlights of our last meeting. We will keep you informed as we go forward. Thank you.
Julia Brim-Edwards, Chair, Superintendent Recruitment Task Force
Dear PPS Families,
Over the summer, crews will be working in schools throughout the district to address health and safety issues, using funds from the bond that voters approved in May. At the same time, planning is under way for bigger projects to rebuild three high schools and a middle school. We wanted to give you an update on what is coming up.
