      Attendance: School is now is session. Students should attend school everyday and arrive on time unless they are sick or have an authorized reason to be absent. Don't forget, per the PGCPS attendance policy, if a student is absent guardians must send a note to the student's teacher within 3 days of their return either via email, ClassDojo, or handwritten for it to be considered an excused absence. Absences for 3 or more days require a doctor's note. Unexcused absences will not receive make-up work and will be assigned a grade of 0 per PGCPS policies and procedures.

      Early Dismissal:Students are expected to be in school for the entire school day (7:45am-1:55pm on normal hours). However, during those rare times that a student needs to be dismissed early due to an appointment or other reason, the below procedure must be followed:

      Early dismissal will end at 1:00pm unless the student is being picked up due to illness, an administrative concern, or an administratively approved prearrangement has been made. Authorized individuals (from the emergency contact form)who are picking students up will ring the doorbell and show ID via video.  Authorized individuals will wait outside masked. A staff member will retrieve the student and bring them to the authorized individual(s), double checking ID and having them sign the early dismissal log required by PGCPS policies and procedures. No student will be released to someone who is not a legal guardian or listed on the emergency contact form. If a need arises for someone to pick up a student not listed on the emergency contact form, the legal guardian must send a handwritten note with a signature to the Main Office. Telephone calls or emails will not be accepted. This is per PGCPS policies and procedures and for the safety of our students. 

      Start filling out the lunch form applications. Remember, our Title 1 funding is directly attached to these forms. You can find the forms on our website.
