Weather Update - Given the chance for inclement weather across the area impacting travel in the morning and out of an abundance of caution, all PCPS schools and offices will open on a two-hour delay on Tuesday, February 13, 2024. Students should plan to arrive at their bus stop two hours later than normal. We ask parents or guardians of students who drive to school to talk with them about being particularly careful in the morning. We want everyone to arrive safely and ready to learn. Breakfast and lunch will be served at school. We thank everyone for their continued patience and flexibility as we continue to make decisions that have everyone’s safety as our primary concern. Thank you!
IMPORTANT BUS ROUTE INFORMATION: Notice to parents in the Springfield Area-- Springfield Bus 1 will not run this afternoon. Bus 58 and Bus 40 will split this route. Students may be up to 35-40 minutes late arriving home this evening. Thank you.
What is kindness? Kindness matters and it matters every day. Today is day one of our Kindness Week initiative. Start by defining what you think kindness is…it might be a kind word to someone, it might be lending a hand to someone in need, saying thank you to the person who held the door for you, or just smiling at someone. Kindness can be many different things and it is easy to be kind. Ask someone today how they demonstrate kindness. Be Kind. No exceptions!
Important Bus Route Information: Notice to Parents in the Luray Area- There will be no Bus 2 this afternoon. Please expect delays of up to 30 minutes for Bus 2 students.
Digital Awareness Tip #5
Throughout next week, February 12 - 16, 2024, along with the Virginia Department of Education and other school divisions across the state, Page County Public Schools will celebrate Kindness Week. Kindness Week is to recognize that simple day-to-day acts of kindness enable our schools, communities, and state to be a kinder place to live, work, learn, and play. Practicing and celebrating kindness is to look for the good, bridge connections across differences, restore hope, and empower people to make our communities strong and resilient.
PCPS expresses our gratitude for all of our school counselors and counseling department staff. We are thankful for the work they do - seen and unseen - for all of our students, staff, and families. We appreciate you!!
