The PG13 film crew showcases the grit and determination of students, teachers and administrators during distance learning for a revealing look at just how difficult distance learning can be, and how the school community perseveres together.

Family Survey

After more than a year of virtual learning, students who opted-in to hybrid learning transitioned to classrooms with a schedule that splits learning between school and home.

Meanwhile, PGCPS surveyed families during the summer to determine their plans this month to either continue virtual learning or begin hybrid instruction two days a week until the end of the school year.

Student Meals

Student meal services have resumed and during hybrid learning, meals will be served at schools Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

Students who are continuing with distance learning may pick up meal packages on Monday and Wednesday between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. at any school.

Virtual Festival Awards Show

The PGCPS Film Festival Awards show will be streamed live and on-demand on May 12.

To see all of the People’s Choice Award winners and the Academy and Emmy Award winners, tune in to this event.

Most importantly, hear acceptance speeches from students as they receive their awards.

Language Communication Seminar

Language communication experts Paula Schauer and Pauline Dunn are preparing to offer a general “Language and Communication” seminar.

The live and recorded session, which will focus on the education setting, will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on April 19 as a Zoom presentation for families of students who are deaf or hard of hearing.

PGCPS Calendar

Two calendar options are being planned for Board of Education presentations later this year.

While one option entails an Aug. 30 start date for students, another offers a Sept. 7 back-to-school start-up date for students.

Important Checklist for 2012-22 Academic Year

– Mandatory Masks: Encourage your child to practice properly wearing a mask at home, as they are mandatory on school buses and at school.
– No Shots, No School means students returning to school are required to be up-to-date on all vaccinations.
– Check SchoolMax: Make sure students’ contact information — address, phone and email — are current in the SchoolMax portal to avoid missing critical back-to-school information.
– No Dress Stress: Uniforms are not required this school year.
– Sign up for warnings that will include important news and updates by subscribing to school system email and text alerts.
