Principal's Update January 3, 2021

new year
Sea Kings Families,
Let me begin by wishing you all a happy and healthy New Year. I hope you were able to spend quality time with friends and family during the holidays and were able to relax and unwind. Returning to school after an extended holiday is a great opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to learning and, more importantly, to one other!
We will always prioritize the safety of our students and staff on campus. Our school, in collaboration with our District and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, will continue to implement health and safety precautions to KEEP OUR SCHOOL OPEN. We'll also work with you, the students' parents and guardians, to keep lines of communication open and share important health information that will keep our entire community safe. 
As your principal, I am honored and grateful to work with such exceptional kids, faculty, families, and community members. As we continue cultivating compassionate, imaginative, collaborative learners prepared to navigate and contribute to the ever-changing world, I am confident that we will have a productive and enriching year.
In 2022 let's make PVIS a "way of life" for your children, not merely a place where you "send" them to learn. Consider it something special that we can all be proud of, and that we are all responsible for protecting. 
Finally, as we return to school, we will confront new and familiar challenges. Please give our teachers and staff time to adjust; if an issue arises in the coming weeks, please email me or Ms. Egan, and make our site administration your first point of contact for support.
Micah Farrell, Principal
Jennifer Egan, Assistant Principal
Please take a moment to carefully read through updates for our return to school below. We appreciate your support, patience, and more importantly your commitment to being flexible as we move forward. 
Nothing is too difficult for us as a team to overcome!!
***Please note Color Battle Fundraiser is postponed for now. We will update you at a later date. 
Please make note of the following to  Keep Our School Open:
