Staff and students are meeting as a group at the airport on Saturday morning; the plane is scheduled to land at 10:48am. Feel free to bring signs, wear your Joseph Strong shirts, etc. We will get a picture for the yearbook as well. His immune system is not 100% yet, so we will stay outside the terminal.

URGENT: Mitkof Middle School will move to remote learning for the remainder of this week, Thursday, 11/18 and Friday, 11/19. Petersburg continues to experience high community spread, and multiple positive cases/close contacts are connected with students. Contact tracing efforts are not happening easily, and we are being impacted by connections inside and outside the schools. High School students will continue in person, but this may change based on staffing needs and Covid connections to staff and students. Breakfast and lunch will still be provided for elementary and middle school students. Meals may be picked up between 11 am-1 pm at the back entrance to the Stedman Cafeteria. No sign-up is necessary. Reminder that Monday, Nov, 22 and Tuesday, Nov. 23 are vacation days for all students, K-12. Also, parent/teacher conferences will be held virtually K-12. Check your email, Facebook, and pcsd.us website for updates and specific building schedules.

URGENT: Petersburg continues to experience high community spread, and multiple positive cases/close contacts are connected with school staff and students.

Stedman Elementary is experiencing multiple staffing issues and will be moving to remote learning for the remainder of this week, Nov. 16-19. Middle and High School students will continue in person, but this may change based on staffing needs and Covid connections to staff and students. Elementary students and families will receive specific information from their child’s teacher regarding virtual learning options. Preschool and kindergarten students will have paper packets (pick up times to be announced), first and second graders will be using iPads and SeeSaw for communication, and 3rd-5th grade students have their Chromebooks. Special Education teachers will be communicating with families directly about services for their children. Breakfast and lunch will still be provided for elementary students.

This may change depending on staffing levels and/or continued community spread and case counts. Please stay home if you are sick or exhibiting any symptoms. We are also announcing that students will have two additional vacation days on Nov. 22 and 23 so they will have a full week away from each other and the buildings over Thanksgiving.
