Dear PG Families,
I wanted to provide a little more information regarding our distance learning and closure as well as meal pick up.
On Friday in my correspondence I shared, “Tonight the PG Board of Trustees met to review the recommendation as well as additional factors related to Covid cases in and around PG.”.
I should have elaborated a little more. You need to know that we are scrambling at school to not only keep up with all of the calls of actual cases and cases of exposure of Covid with our families and staff. Once we receive notification, we must do all of the contact tracing and alerting those that need to know, but also scrambling to keep the school open as more and more actual cases or cases of exposure come up. The timing coincided with the recommendation from Dr. Luu to return to distance learning, but we had very little choice to do anything else with all of the quarantining. This return to distance learning is against the desire of our staff and Board of Trustees. We want to have our students back for in person learning when safe and appropriate, but must follow certain directives related to health orders and truly had no other options.
If your child’s classroom has been impacted we will communicate directly with each classroom (cohort). You will not receive an email such as this, which is intended for all of our families a group.
I am hoping that as we are not in session for the rest of December that we as a county and community can make a significant difference in the number of cases to allow us to come back to in school learning. I am afraid that with the current trend across the state and in particular Sutter Co and with the holiday season upon us that will not be the case, but time will tell. I ask that we all work together and do our part in hopes for PG to reopen as quickly as possible.
In terms of meals for these next two weeks, Mr. Robbie will once again be serving meals for the week on Wednesdays between noon and 2PM. We will plan on the same number of meals that have been done recently for our PG students. However, reaching out to our office at Sherrym@sutter.k12.ca.us
or to Mr. Robbie directly at Robbiew@sutter.k12.ca.us
would be extremely helpful for planning purposes. Please email no later than Monday.
Lastly, although our office is closed during this distance learning time, you can still reach us via email and we will return emails or call you directly. Please do not hesitate to reach out for any questions.
Best of luck in distance learning.
