PVMS Tiger Tuesday News 11/17/2020


     Tiger Tuesday Update

      November 17,  2020  


Happy Tuesday! Let’s be real, it is more of a crazy Tuesday than a happy one, nevertheless I was so happy to see our students in person at PVMS this morning. Everyday that we have been able to stay open for students has been a blessing and something to truly be thankful for. 

As you read in the message from our superintendent that was sent our earlier this afternoon, 27J will be transition to fully remote learning from December 1, 2020 through January 11, 2020. Here is the district rationale for going fully remote. 

The high prevalence of the virus within our community and the quarantine requirements that come with it, have made operations a challenge for our schools while working to provide coverage for staff members who are out on quarantine, maintain our commitment to safe cohorting, and not create additional stress in terms of excessive workload for staff. 
We anticipate a new and  more restrictive public health order this week. That change will create additional concern for those learning and working in person within our system.
We want that additional week after Winter Break to be remote so we can be in a strong position operationally when we return to in person learning on Tuesday, January 12th.

PVMS School Schedules for December 1, 2020 - January 11, 2021

Please note that during the window of December 1, 2020 - January 12, 2021 all students will be learning remotely. Students will continue to learn NEW grade-level content during this time and are expected to be fully engaged in all their classes. Semester grades will still be earned throughout this time frame. 

Please help your student be successful by setting up a quiet work space where they can learn uninterrupted from 8:00 am-4:32 pm. If you child needs headphones or WiFi via a hotspot please reach out to Jarred Ratzlaff at so we can get your kiddo hooked up this week. Also, encourage your student to bring their computer and charger home with them every night this week, in case we need to move to remote before Friday. 

If your student is already a full online (4 days a week) student their schedule will remain the same. If your student is a blended learner please look below for their grade-level schedule and have them follow it with fidelity Tuesday-Friday during our remote learning window. Attendance will be taken for all students every class, every day. In order to be marked present, we MUST SEE your student on camera. Your student must be logged in on time and stay in the google meet until the teacher dismisses them for the day. Schedules can be viewed here:

Please reach out directly to your child's teacher if you have questions about the new schedule.

Hand Turkeys

My favorite thanksgiving craft has always been making a good ole fashion HAND TURKEY. As I have gotten older, I have continued to make hand turkeys but have replaced the feathers with characteristics that I am thankful for about the person that I make the turkeys for. Making these turkeys brings me so much joy and has helped me stay positive this year.  I included the template of the hand turkey here in case you would like to make some!


Pictures are Here! 

If you have an online student please come to the window in the vestibule to pick up your school pictures. Thank you!
