Take Care: With a spike in COVID cases , it is important that we all adhere to our safety protocols to help keep everyone safe. Please remind your child to:

  • Screen for COVID symptoms before coming to school
  • Wear a mask both indoors & outside
  • Bring a water bottle
  • Do not share drinks, food or candy
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer

Semester 1 Grades: There are 2 weeks until the end of Semester 1. These grades become part of your child’s school record. All work (both new and redos) must be submitted for grading before the end of the grading period. This may vary depending on the class due to time constraints for grading. Tutoring is available both before and after school for all students. TUTORING SCHEDULE

REMINDER: PBMS is working hard to stop the spread of COVID. Students and staff are wearing masks indoors and out. We are wiping down desks and high contact areas, washing hands, using hand sanitizer and utilizing systems to increase ventilation in all of the classrooms. At this point, our main concern is lunchtime. Please encourage your child to stay 6 feet away from their friends while unmasked to eat and to replace their mask as soon as they are done. Not only can this decrease the spread of COVID, it can  keep students in school if a friend or classmate tests positive.

When there is a positive case on campus, the first step for us is to determine close contacts. We enter this information in a database for the contact tracers then send a phone call and an email to the parents of students who were determined to be close contacts. The contact tracer calls those families throughout the day and evening to determine next steps for the students. If deemed necessary, after notifying families of close contact, we also send home a generic letter to all families to communicate that there was a positive COVID case on campus. This letter covers a 14 day timeframe. Here is a link to the SDUSD COVID Dashboard for information on cases in our schools. COVID-19 Dashboard Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns. We get better at what we do with your feedback.
