Announcements

 

8th Grade Promotion Planning: Thank you for your patience for information on promotion. This Thursday at 9:00am, PBMS student government students will host a Zoom meeting for parents about promotion and end of year activities. The meeting will open with the guidelines regarding these activities. Students will share a plan based on them and then we want to hear from parents. The zoom ID is 898 8222 7901 or use the link above. Feel free to send questions in advance to me at kmeng@sandi.net. We will have an FAQ ready to share at the meeting.

 

Information for Hybrid Students:

Out of State Travel: There is a strong recommendation by the CDC to self quarantine for 7 days and get a COVID test within 3-5 days of return home from travel. SDUSD will not be enforcing this, just strongly encouraging it.

Cell Phones: Students can have cell phones on campus daily but they are only permitted to be out and on before school or after school. For the last 3 weeks, students have been reminded to put their cell phones away during the break. This week, we will begin confiscating phones. On the first offense, students can pick up their phone after school in the main office. If it happens again, PBMS will release the phone to a parent. Thank you for your help with this issue.

Be sure to assess your child's health every day before coming to school by completing the Daily Student Symptom Checklist or using ClearPass ClearPass Directions The checklist must be turned in or the ClearPass screen must be shown to staff prior to entering campus. Direct your child to the main office to get more checklists.

Please remind your child of the social distancing expectations: 6 feet apart before school & during the break. Physical distancing is especially important for the students remaining on campus for lunch.
