Early Release Day on Wednesday, September 26

Our first early release day will take place on Wednesday, September 26th. Students in grades K - 5 will be dismissed at 12:45 p.m. so teachers and support staff can participate in professional development sessions for the afternoon.

There is afternoon bus transportation on Wednesday, 9/26. Expect that your child will be dropped off *2 hours **earlier* than usual due to the change in our dismissal time (12:45 p.m. instead of 2:45 p.m.).

PPS Open House - Thursday, September 27th

We are looking forward to Open House this *Thursday night, September 27th* from *6:30 to 7:30 p.m.* Come by to visit your child’s classroom, meet the teacher, visit Unified Arts teacher classrooms (library, PE, art, music, and guidance), and enjoy saying hello to other PPS families.

*IMPORTANT: Parking for Open House*
Our main parking area for Open House is the Holy Cross Church parking lot at 416 Church Road . We will run a shuttle bus every 10 to 15 minutes between the church and school starting at 6:15 p.m. The last shuttle bus will leave school at 7:45 p.m.

Please reserve our school parking lot for families with babies (we all remember those car seats weigh a ton!) and toddlers and families/guests with mobility issues. Thank you for being considerate!
