Davenport Landing Beach Cleanup

Important Information about Reopening
Finally, some good viral news! The pandemic data seems to be trending in the right direction, which means that Pacific is able to bring back more students to campus for in-person instruction for more time. So far, 78% of you have responded to the parent SURVEY about reopening (thank you!). Of the respondents, 42.6% indicated that they wanted to send their child to in-person instruction, 24.3% want to remain in distance learning, 22.6% said "maybe", and the remainder chose "other" and wrote individual responses, most of which could be interpreted as "it depends". It will be tricky for us to simultaneously accommodate both in-person and distance learners, but we are getting used to new challenges this year!
Grades K-3rd will begin meeting twice per week beginning during the week of March 8th. Grades 4th-6th will begin meeting twice per week beginning during the week of March 15th. For the new schedule, see the 2/26 School Memo.
We are all very excited to see the kids again, even if their smiles are hidden. If all goes well, we will potentially add a 3rd morning per week after spring break. We are not yet permitted to return to school 100%, but hopefully, the trends will continue to improve and the restrictions will loosen.
NOTE: Before students return to school, all families MUST COMPLETE THIS FORM. Logistical information about onsite classes is Here.
