Dear PVMS East Parents,

We had another busy week at PV East. There are many new procedures and a lot of information. Thank you for your patience as we work together to make this school year a success. I just want to remind everyone that there is NO SCHOOL TOMORROW (9/18/2020) due to the Rosh Hashanah holiday. 

Grab & Go

If you have not yet picked up your child's Grab & Go bag, please call the office next week Monday - Thursday between the hours of 8:00 - 3:00 and make arrangements to pick up the supplies that your child needs for virtual learning.

Sixth grade students require a physical examination and seventh grade students require a dental examination. If your child has had these examinations, please be sure to send a copy to the Nurse's office. Forms are available on the PV website. Your cooperation with this is most appreciated!
Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child.  I can be reached at 610-409-8580 or emailed at tespersen@pvsd.org

Hybrid Schedule

Those students who have selected to participate in “Hybrid” learning will be divided into 2 groups, A & B, based on their last name. After receiving some parent feedback we have adjusted the days for hybrid to as follows:

Group A is A-L = Monday & Tuesday with alternating Wednesday

Group B is M-Z = Thursday & Friday with alternating Wednesday

Students will transition back on the following dates:

  • 6th Grade - Tuesday, September 29th
  • 8th Grade - Monday, October 19th
  • 7th Grade - Monday, November 9th

So the 6th Grade Hybrid ‘Group A’ (A-L) students will return to school on Tuesday (9/29) and Wednesday (9/30). 6th Grade Hybrid ‘Group B’ (M-Z) students will return to school on Thursday (10/1) and Friday (10/2).

Those students who selected Virtual Voyage 2.0 will remain virtual. This will ensure proper social distancing as well as promote consistency. All students are also expected to wear a face covering in school.  On the days that students are not in school, they will continue to participate virtually. 

Half Day Schedule on 9/23/2020

We will be following this half day schedule on Wednesday, September 23rd. Al clas periods are 30 minutes.

Tentative Photo Days
