Question: Can I walk my child into school on the first day?

Answer: Of course, please bring a mask when entering the building. We are required to wear masks when indoors at any of our schools. 

Question: Can I pick-up my child from school? 

Answer: Of course, we would like to keep our hallways clear (regardless of COVID or not). So, if you come early to pick-up your child please wait outside until one minute prior to the school bell ringing at 2:45. Noise in the hallways disrupts learning in the classrooms and small groups in the hallways.

Question: Where does my child go prior to the bell ringing?

Answer #1: If your child is in kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade please drop them off at the primary end near the playground. Kindergarten, 2nd, and 3rd grade will meet their teachers under the covered playground area. 1st grade will meet their teachers under the covered area by the primary entrance. 

Answer #2: If your child is in 4th or 5th grade please drop them off at the intermediate end near the covered area. 4th and 5th graders will meet their teachers under the covered area. 

Answer #3: All students will be able to enter the building at 8:00am when the bell rings. If they are not entering with their class at 8:00am they will be considered tardy.

~News From the Lunchroom~


The Petersburg School Board has approved our school as a “Universal Breakfast” school. This means we will be serving most students breakfast in their classrooms. Kindergarten students will be served breakfast in the cafeteria for routine and structure. Students in 2nd and 3rd grade will be served breakfast in the cafeteria due to morning interventions in those grade levels. Some breakfast options they may see are cinnamon roll, cereal, bagel bites, string cheese, sausage, english muffin, yogurt with granola, and Pop Tarts.


All students will be eating lunch in the cafeteria.

~News From the Counselor~

Newsletter from our Counselor. Mrs. Etcher works with all grades on social emotional skills, and she would like to share a monthly newsletter with families. The idea is to keep everyone updated on lessons she is teaching each month. Website: https://sites.google.com/pcsd....

~Safety Information~

Important safety information: When dropping students off at the playground end, please note that there is a designated drop-off area marked by the side of the playground fence and green cones. Vehicles enter the area following the arrows and drop off students between the cones and the fence. Students go directly to the playground area, and vehicles immediately drive through and exit, alleviating congestion and keeping the area safe. If you wish to escort your child or wait and watch your child enter the school, you will need to find a parking spot. Thank you for helping us keep all students safe.


Travelled in the last few days?  The school is strongly recommending PCR testing prior to arrival at school.  Several of the recent Petersburg cases have been travel-related.  The school is already being impacted.  Help keep kids in their classrooms by testing before coming to school.  Free travel testing is available at the PMC ER entrance from noon-4 pm Monday-Saturday or call the Covid Info Line at 772-5788. 


Please see the attached documents outlining protocols for masking, testing, travel, and close contacts/positive cases, as well as the symptom-free school protocol.  These protocols are subject to change as new guidance is released or transmission rates change.  PSD will notify the public of any updates or changes via pcsd.us website, email, and social media.  


~Happy Birthday to Who?~

We would like to wish the following students a Happy Birthday!  Birthdays are recognized during morning announcements, and each student also receives a special certificate and a Scholastic Book from the birthday shelf.
