Early Drop-Off

Hello PVPA parents and guardians,

As the temperatures are starting to get colder I thought that it is a good time to send out a reminder about student drop-off and pick-up.  As it states in the Community Handbook, the school does not open until 7:30 am Monday through Friday and students should not be dropped off prior to 7:30 am.  (Even just a few minutes)  Winter temperature can have a negative health effect on a person in as little as just a few minutes.  The same thing applies to students waiting outside at the end of school to be picked up.  School ends at 3:55 pm Monday through Thursday and Fridays at 2:50 pm.  Students are expected to be picked up promptly at the end of the school day unless individual students are staying after school for a school sanctioned activity.  As I understand, these policies may sometimes make it difficult for families but they are put forth in the best interest of the students in regards to safety and health situations.  It is expected that the policies set forth in the Community Handbook be adhered to.  I thank you in advance for your adherence and cooperation.

Respectfully,
John P. Kulas
