Please Upgrade Your Child's Mask
If your family has the ability to send your student with any of the following it would help keep your family and the school community safe*:
Here are some places you can order masks/respirators:
Project N95 (ProjectN95 Shop Masks)
Be Healthy USA KF94 options (Be Healthy USA homepage)
AmbrustUSA (AmbrustUSA Shop Masks) they carry mask fitters, which can be used to improve the fit of surgical masks. (Here is their Mask Testing Page)
3M.com [Disposable Respirators] (3M N95 Small)
Bona Fide Masks
Honeywell (Shop Masks)
Rotate Your Masks: It's better not to wear the same mask multiple days in a row. Instead, get a few good masks and use at least a 3-day rotation. Or get 5 (or 7) and assign each one to a different day of the week. Remember to replace surgical masks after 1 day of use, and replace any mask that is showing stains, dirt, wear, or tear.
*Although the state has said they will be sending us higher-grade masks/respirators for students, we are not sure if/when that will happen.
Fake Texts about School Closures
Someone has been sending fake texts about school closures to parents in our county. We currently have no plans to close school. If school were to close, it would be announced by normal channels, including emails from school officials and the school memo. Please do not trust texts from unknown sources.
Don't forget to bring a water bottle to school!

Pacific School Foundation Meeting
Join with other parents and Principal Gross at our monthly meetings from August until May. They are scheduled on the second Tuesday of each month. Upcoming PSF Parent meeting is Tuesday, February 8th at 5:30pm. Meet up online through Zoom.
Bring your enthusiasm to support your child’s education and be a part of our special school community and learn more on how you can support the school and work with other parents and families to fundraise to meet the funding gap between the cost of our unique public school and the amount the school receives in funding.
Even if you can't make it to the meeting, please complete this fillable PDF about your participation in Parents' Club and email to firstname.lastname@example.org or deliver to the school office.
Parents: the Pacific School Foundation is hosting our bingo night on Friday, April 28th. We need your help! To have a successful event, we need help requesting donations: big donations for our raffle and small donations from local businesses for bingo prizes.
Print out the donation letter and bring to your favorite local business. Please let Samantha know where you dropped off letters so we don't bring ten letters to one business! Businesses often have a maximum donation amount that replenishes at the beginning of the year so now is the perfect time to ask.
Thanks! If you have any questions email email@example.com
