New Bag policy- Effective January 10, 2022

PWCS is enacting a no bag policy for all indoor athletic events at the middle school level. This is in alignment with the policy currently in place at all high schools. This includes backpacks, purses, camera equipment bags, etc. Small wallet sized clutches are permitted. The policy  also allows for clear diaper and medically necessary bags to be brought in. These bags may be subject to search. This policy will go into effect for indoor athletic events at the middle level beginning Monday, January 10th . Our school will have a plan in place to secure any student bookbags as needed during athletic events. We will not be responsible for securing bags from any attendees who are not students at our school. Signage will be posted to remind attendees prior to arriving at the ticket area. We thank you in advance for adhering to this policy and look forward to having you with us to cheer on our student-athletes.


Emergency Cards

Records show that some families have yet to complete or update their Return to Learn Packets. Please remember to access the HUB and complete the Return to Learn packet online. Completing that document with your most current phone numbers, email address, emergency contacts, and computer device information  will ensure that we are able to communicate with you consistently and effectively.


Martin Luther King Jr. Break

School will be closed on Monday, January 17, 2022 in observance of Martin Luther King Jr Day. School will re-open on Tuesday, January 18, 2022.
