Dear PVPUSD Families,
I would like to welcome you all back to school from Spring Break. Recent positive developments throughout our state and county, based upon a reduction in COVID rates, have led to the loosening of restrictions related to return to school policy. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LA DPH) has provided schools with new guidance on spacing in classrooms, requiring students to be 3 feet apart rather than 6 feet apart in classrooms.
This new guidance, along with employee vaccinations and smaller than expected numbers of hybrid students returning to our high school campuses, has allowed for the district to announce changes that will begin the process of bringing more and more students safely back on campus.
Grades TK-3: Effective April 19th, all hybrid students in grades TK-3 will attend school in a full day model, four days per week (Wednesday will remain in remote learning). Both A groups and B groups will attend school together, from approximately 8:30 to 2:30. Principals will send out a more detailed schedule in the near future.
High School: Effective April 19th, all hybrid students in grades 9-12 will receive in-person instruction four days per week (Wednesday will remain in remote learning). Schedules for both Peninsula and PVHS will be sent out separately from the principals.
Grades 4-8 There will be no other changes to hybrid schedules at this time for grades 4-8. Hybrid grades 4-5 will continue to attend school in the AM / PM model; Hybrid Middle school will continue as scheduled, with 7th and 8th grade returning on April 12th to join the 6th grade students who have already returned.
I thank you for your continued flexibility and look forward to welcoming more and more students back to our campuses in this final quarter of the school year.
Alex Cherniss, Ed.D.
