Letter from the Principal

  •  PLA Parents and Students,

     On behalf of teachers and staff at PLA, I would like to emphasize how so very proud we are of our PLA students, parents and all stakeholders. As we navigate through these challenging times, students are checking in with teachers through Google Classrooms and trying to wrap their heads around this temporary burden to a traditional education. I realize how concerned and frustrated students and parents must feel because teachers and staff feel the same way.

    In a short time, the COVID-19 pandemic has turned our world upside down, and we all suddenly became homeschooled. Thank you for picking up or downloading the learning packets. These will be good review material for you, and I suggest you hold on to the finished packets to turn in later. 

    Parents, there is a survey on the SUSD website to complete if your child needs to borrow a Chromebook to accomplish distance learning requirements.

    There is no telling how long we will be required to continue distance learning. I encourage all students to keep up with their assigned work, check in with teachers through Google Classrooms, communicate with teachers, Ms. Tomlin and Mr. Capello through emails as necessary, and monitor your student gmail accounts for any information we are sending to you. Please also pay attention to any communication from SUSD and the District Office through emails and phone messages.

    It's really important to continue to follow CDC guidelines, maintain social distancing, and continue to shelter in place. Your health and the health of your loved ones is what's most important during these next several weeks. We miss you and wish all of you a safe return to PLA when this threat is over. 

    You all remain in my prayers.
