Principal's Update March 21, 2021

Sea Kings Families,
We have a great deal of information to cover in this Principal's Update as we welcome 6th grade students to campus Monday, March 22; and welcome back our 7th and 8th grade students April 12.
I would like to begin by saying THANK YOU!!
THANK YOU to our teachers and staff for working tirelessly to prepare for return, while continuing to teach and support our students. Please show your support for our PVIS educators, they truly are the best of the best. 
THANK YOU to our parents and guardians. Your support does not go unnoticed, and we know you too are balancing the demands of every day life in addition to the demands distance learning has imposed. 
THANK YOU to our PTSA and Booster Club. We were able to host Wednesday socials and successfully welcome back Cross Country, Lacrosse, and other clubs back to campus because of our dedicated parent leadership and support. 
THANK YOU to our students. I am so proud of each and every one of you. Your best is always best, and we know you are working hard. 
Every single one of you has contributed to our being honored as a
California Distinguished School. 
Hybrid students will be divided into two groups, an "A - Red Group" and "B - Black Group" using an alpha split. We are are working on the exact split within the alpha for the 7th and 8th grade classes. 7th and 8th grade groupings will be finalized and communicated to parents during the week of April 5th.
Please continue to do your part and focus on each other. Current guidelines still stress the importance of avoiding nonessential travel. If your Spring Break plans do include leaving the state and you come home on that Sunday, the first day that your child can come to school/on-campus activities/sports is April 15. (this includes vaccinated individuals, more detailed information below in a message from our nurse).  Please be sure to communicate with us, and know that there is nothing we cannot work out together. We will continue to stress the importance of flexibility and patience from all. 

Please review the PVIS Return to Campus Guidelines here, and note that we will update this routinely as guidelines change. You can find revisions listed on page 2 of the document. 
SHOW US YOUR GREEN SCREEN: Be sure to bookmark the screening site CLICK HERE    (it's also on our website). Remember to have your "green screen" screenshot ready, prior to leaving your home to ensure connectivity isn't an issue and we can get your student on to campus quickly. Your patience is greatly appreciated, we will get through this together.

We are excited to bring our Sea Kings back, and will continue to do everything we can to support you and your student. Please do not hesitate to reach out.
