Michael Corritone, Principal

With the mid-winter break almost upon us, we have a lot to celebrate and much to also look forward to for the remainder of the school year.

At the PUSD Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) meeting this past Monday, an annual progress update was presented on our district and school goals. This same update will also be presented at tonight’s school board meeting. New district and site goals for the next three school years are currently being developed. Future LCAP and Site Council meetings will focus on the actions and services that will support these goals. I encourage parents and community members who would like to learn more about our goals, actions and services for 2020-23 to attend the next LCAP Community Engagement meeting on Tuesday, March 3 from 3:30-5:00pm in the Havens Library.

Looking ahead, please remember spring conferences are next month, March 17-19. These three days are also minimum days with a 12:00pm dismissal time. Similarly to last school year, spring conferences are optional. Optional means that a teacher may invite parents/guardians to discuss student progress, or a parent/guardian may request a conference if they would like to meet with the teacher.

Parent/guardians will receive student progress reports (report cards) on Friday, March 6 so they can be reviewed before the conference window begins. Once you receive the report card, your student’s teacher will reach out if they would like to schedule a conference. If your student’s teacher is not requesting a conference, you will not receive a communication in addition to the report card.

We recognize parents/guardians have questions that do not always arise during the conference window and we want to remind you that you may reach out to us any time you have a concern or question about your student.

I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable mid-winter break. Please remember school will resume on Monday, February 24.
