Masking Updates

On February 28th the Governor announced that starting on Monday, March 14, students and staff in TK-12 schools are longer required to wear masks while indoors on school campuses, although strongly recommended. At Shoal Creek Elementary, we value and respect individual choices on our campus. Some of our staff and students will continue to wear their masks, and some will choose not to. As a community, we need to respect the choices that each individual makes. I am requesting that over the next couple days, y ou speak with your child(ren) on your family’s expectations regarding masking, as well as, how to respect the decisions made by others. Our teachers will have similar conversations in their classrooms. Our counseling team is also available to support any students experiencing anxiety or difficulty with this transition in masking requirements. 

Please Note:  Staff and Students who test positive for COVID 19 will continue to isolate per the CDPH and SDCOE Decision Tree.  If an individual tests negative on Day 5, they may return to school on Day 6 as long as they are asymptomatic or symptoms are resolving. A mask must be worn that fits snugly over the mouth and nose while indoors and when around others outside, until Day 10. If one chooses not to wear a mask,  they are required to return on Day 11.

Chromebooks-Grades 3-5

As part of our district’s 1:1 Chromebook initiative all 3rd-5th graders have Chromebooks they bring back and forth to school.  These students will keep their Chromebooks at home over the summer and return with them in August (5th graders will take them to middle school).  If your child will not be attending school in PUSD next year, please have your child turn in their Chromebook on June 8th or 9th. Incoming 3rd graders will receive new Chromebooks at the beginning of the school year.  Students in primary grades will continue to have access to Chromebooks to use at school next year.
