Virtual Snow Day Make-Up Days

As was in our PTSC Weekly Update last week and also in letters sent home from your child’s school–we have been working hard to be ready to do Virtual (online) Inclement weather days should we have another day when the weather or conditions are so bad that we cannot have school as we typically have school in our school buildings.  We are excited about the possibility of not having to delay instruction because the weather is bad outside or the conditions to dangerous to travel to school.

We have been discussing our snow day make-up dates which are scheduled for February 13, 2015 and April 6, 2015.  We have decided to make these Virtual (online) make-up days.  This means that school will be in session–but that students will not physically be present in the school building.  Teachers will make sure students have their learning activities for the day by 9 am on February 13, 2015 (and April 6, 2015).  This will be similar to what we do at BGHS and BGMS for our online learning days each month–only all students K-12 will participate.

Our hope is that the February 13, 2015 date is our first opportunity to have a Virtual (online) day and will give all of us plenty of time to be ready.  Watch for more information to come from your school about our first Virtual Make-Up Day!  If you have questions, make sure to contact your child’s principal.

PTSC Standouts:

What outstanding projects I saw Friday at the cultural fair at PLE!  Great work to all of the third graders on their research!

Congratulations to the cast and crew of “Black Hearts and Bearded Ladies” for their great performances this weekend.  In addition to the entertaining production–the cucumber sandwiches were a stroke of genius!

Things to Know/Do:

    • Now hiring substitute teachers!  Please contact Linda Dusek at the administration building if you are interested in substitute teaching and she will help you start the application process and discuss qualifications.
    • Have you updated your account information in Instant Alert?  Make sure that you have your cell phone number and your email entered so that you will receive the latest updates we send out.  You can update your Instant Alert Account here.
    • Do your friends and neighbors know how to find our weekly updates?  Even if your neighbors don’t have kids in school tell them about our weekly updates so they can hear the great news of what happens at PTSC!
    • Every Wednesday is a 30-minute delayed start.  If we have a 2-hour delay, students will arrive at school 2 hours after the regular start time for the building.
    • We are also looking for bus drivers to drive our extra-curricular runs.  If you are interested, please apply online.  It’s a great way to earn some money and attend extra-curricular events!
