Parents, please check your student’s 2nd quarter schedule before Monday. We have had to make some changes to accommodate for class sizes. We have officially ended term 1 and I can not express how grateful I am on how this community has come together to support our children and schools. Please continue to partner with us as we embark on the next step in this journey. Monday will be the first day of the second term and the beginning of the Stage 3 of the Return to Learn Plan. Students will now be dismissed daily at 1:50 p.m. You can reference the daily schedule on the PCJH website.
