    PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE: Update for Families: Reopening of Schools

    July 13, 2020


    Dear Petrides Families,
    Please disregard if your child has graduated or is moving on.  We appreciate your patience as it will take us some time to update our email distribution list.
    As you may be aware, the Department of Education has started planning for the re-opening of schools in September.  Please see attached letter (an update from Chancellor Carranza) which provides details on the expected blended learning model, which will allow students some days of in-person learning, and continued remote learning on other days.  
    To help us best plan for our learning community, we would appreciate if you would take a few minutes to complete the brief survey at the link below:
    We will continue to be in touch throughout the summer to provide updates on our specific school plan, so that you can prepare for your the needs of your family.
