Extended Closure Letter
Stay at Home Letter
Letter to our Students, Families and Community
Sunday March 29... PCHS FAMILIES - Mr. Wilson and I are participating in an ISBE webinar addressing the shift to the upcoming “Remote Learning Days”. We will be working with our teachers to develop our community solution to learning. We appreciate you all and your patience as we work through the unknowns. #PantherNation #BetterTogether
PCHS is going to be hosting a virtual spirit week! Next week, March 30th- April 3rd, we will be posting a daily challenge to our Facebook page. Students can participate by taking a photo and posting it in the comments of the post. Students who participate will get their names put into a hat to be drawn for a prize each day. The post will be up around 10:00 am and students have until 3:00 pm to share their photo before a name is drawn. We can’t wait to see our students and teachers sharing their school spirit! Below are the virtual spirit week daily challenges:
Movie Monday: Post a picture of a movie you have watched during the lockdown.
Take Care Tuesday: Show us your self-care by posting a picture. Yoga, reading, skincare, cleaning, etc. what have you done to better yourself?
Workout Wednesday: Post a picture of your workout gear or routine during the lockdown.
Thank You Thursday: post what you're thankful for during this time at home.
Fan Friday: show your Panther spirit! Take a picture of yourself, or your family, showing panther pride!
Attention Seniors: Rend Lake College is now going to register for Fall 2020 via telephone/video chat appointments. The face to face appointments that were scheduled for April 15 & 16 have been cancelled. Check your PCHS emails for more information.
Meals for Students
- What: Grab and Go Sacks with Breakfast and Lunch items for 3 days. Cereal Bars, Sandwiches, fruit etc.
- When: 10:30am to 12:00pm – We will begin on Tuesday, Friday and next Monday this week. We may adjust as we learn what the need actually looks like for as long as it takes.
- Where: Panther Drive - curbside pickup. We will also be working with Tamaroa #5 to help make sure students living there are served. We will be dropping food off at the school there.
- Who: Any student in the community.
Also note: District #50 is working with the folks at the Methodist Church to get meals to kids in the community during the shutdown. We’ll share the details on our page.
As with everything associated with this event, there are many unknowns that can’t be addressed until we get more information. We will adjust as needed.
Please note: If you know of any student needing meals during this time contact the school through any means. We will coordinate our resources to take care of them. We will get through this together.
