For the safety of our families and teachers our school will remain closed for the summer. Currently there is no plan for park meet-ups or summer camps. On the bright side, our wonderful teachers have come up with a virtual summer camp offer on the following dates:
June 22-25th - Nature
July 13-16th - Science
August 10-13th – Art
Please see this flyer for more details.
In these uncertain times, we want to reassure you that we are working hard on a plan to reopen SWPCC in the fall. We are working closely with PCPO, as well as getting updates from the Oregon Early Learning Division and the Oregon Health Authority to develop a plan that will let come back together safely as a community. While we are doing everything in our power to develop strategies that will let us reopen, there is a chance that SWPCC will not be able to operate due to health, safety and financial restrictions. Please look for more updates in the Sunday Bulletin; in the meantime, here are a number of resources and links that you might find helpful.
PCPO has put together several resources to help parents of small children to weather the COVID crisis. They have resources on how to talk to children about the novel corona virus, how to support learning away from school as well as some links to local and national health authorities.
