Please Send Extra Clothes
The field is still quite muddy, and there have been a number of slide and splat incidents this week, thanks to all the rain. Please send your student to school with an extra set of clothes until things dry up a bit.
If your student was one of our slide and splat students, it would be appreciated if any loaner clothes could be washed and returned.
Thank you! - The Office

Sick? COVID+? Exposed? Confused?
There has been an increase in COVID cases on campus following winter break. Please go HERE to get the updated information about how to handle kids with symptoms, positive test results, and/or exposures. Our guidelines are based on the county guidelines.
Also, it is fair to assume there is a strong likelihood of being exposed to Covid-19 if you or your child is in public, including here on campus. We will not be sending out individual notifications, unless we reach "outbreak status".

Please Review Pacific!
One easy, zero-cost way you can support Pacific School is by writing a short review of our TK-6th school and/or Pacific Preschool. Just three minutes of your time makes a big difference! Right now we have very few reviews, which makes it harder for families to find out about our award-winning programs and small, supportive community.

If you share your reviews with email@example.com, Elizabeth can also add them to the school website. Thanks so much!!!
