In an effort to identify steps needed to safely reopen schools, California developed criteria included in the Blueprint for a Safer Economy to assist school districts in the planning process. Consistent with this blueprint, the PCS Board of Education voted to continue in Distance Learning through the end of the first semester, which ends on December 18th, 2020.
Students take six classes each semester. On A day, students attend periods 1, 2, and 3 (if they take 0-period, that is also on an A day. On B day, students attend periods 4, 5, and 6. The first day of school this year, Wednesday, August 12, is an A day. The days then alternate, A, B, A, B, etc. The A/B days are listed on our school calendar.
Academic Time: this time is part of the student and teacher school day. Students will be assigned a minimum of 20 minutes of additional instruction/work per period that will be completed during this time--for a total of 60 minutes daily. Students may schedule individual or small group appointments with teachers for additional support or teachers may require students to meet with them.
Please see the PCS Distance Learning site for students and families for more information.
