Dear Potter Valley Families,

Today your student was given materials and curriculum to begin distance learning.  Please stay tuned with further communication from the teachers regarding assignments. Teachers will be using phone calls and emails to communicate with you and your students about the work.  We will continue to use this model of education up to Spring Break which starts on April 6th.

Our cafeteria will be open from 11:00 – 1:00 to hand out meals to students.  The libraries will be open for students who need internet access.  Please call the school office if your student needs to use the library.

Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to support you and your children in this difficult time.  The school offices will be open from 8:00 – 4:00 this week.

Thank you
