Dear Panthers, There is the potential for a winter storm later this week. Please stay tuned for possible announcements and cancellations. The best way to keep up with cancellations and school information is make sure your Skyward contact information is up to date so you can receive notifications and phone calls regarding school closings. School information regarding closings and cancellations will also be shared PBL Facebook page, Twitter, email, text, automated phone message and push notification. PBL will implement e-learning days if district buildings are closed. The method in which instruction will be delivered will be shared with you and your child through building administration and your child's teacher(s). Please make sure you are reviewing information that is sent home both electronically and with your child. I have also linked additional information on school closings below https://docs.google.com/document/d/1wPoQdnRYDPxPXy0x6MXfkYHSTyAvRJi5/editusp=sharing&ouid=104621408335294229033&rtpof=true&sd=true Information can be found regarding how to check your Skyward contact information and directions to download the PBL APP by clicking the link below. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1A6mM8p-2XoHgVgCYrpCcYywTWFiEIVkPrUPlQGx8kDA/edit?usp=sharing Thank you

Good Morning Panthers, On January 7th, the CDC adjusted COVID protocols. On January 11th, IDPH issued their school based guidance which was adapted based on the CDC guidance. Since that date, the three school districts in Ford County in collaboration with the Ford County Public Health Department created an abbreviated document for the local management of these new guidance documents. Please take some time to review the new FCPH School COVID Guidance Document. We will continue to follow the CDC, IDPH, and FCPH guidance as prescribed with the intention of keeping healthy kids in school and activities, and identifying those who are ill and respond accordingly. Please understand that we will at times have to make individual, classroom, team, school, or district based adjustments if the need arises. Please continue to partner with us through the coming months to achieve our ultimate goal which is in person teaching and learning!

Good Afternoon, I hope everyone had a nice break, we are excited to greet students back tomorrow. The CDC released new COVID guidance last week . However, ISBE and IDPH have sent out memos that the new guidance does not apply to schools. New school guidance is expected but has not been released yet. PBL will continue to follow the same guidance as we did prior to the break until further notice. Ford County Public Health Department will hold a vaccination clinic tomorrow after school at Clara Peterson beginning at 2:20. I have linked a flyer for more information. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1cOJglPITG7np4PUsR-YGic5CRmj400T6/view?usp=sharing Thank you
