Dear Class of 2020 Students & Families, Thank you for your responses to the survey and suggestions that have been provided. Based on feedback we have received, we have been working to get additional guidance on the number of people that can attend the filming with the graduate. We are pleased to announce that the graduate can now have up to 14 guests present for the filming. All attendees will be required to maintain proper social distancing and everyone is encouraged to wear a mask or face covering for protection. Please remember that we are still making plans to hold an in-person graduation once large gatherings are permitted. In the meantime, the celebration video is an opportunity for the graduate to celebrate with family and friends on the actual graduation date of May 30, 2020. The video will encompass various pieces including students walking across stage, speeches by the valedictorian and salutatorian, academic recognition, and other special features that we hope you enjoy.The final video will premiere on YouTube at the original graduation time for each high school. It has been, and will continue to be, our goal to give the Seniors the recognition they deserve for their hard work over the past thirteen years. Please share.
Dear Class of 2020 Students & Families, Yesterday, Page County Public Schools released information regarding plans for a virtual celebration in an effort to honor this year’s graduating class. This celebration was designed to be something extra for the Class of 2020, not in place of a traditional in-person graduation. On Tuesday, May 5, 2020, division officials participated in a conference call with State Superintendent of Education Dr. James Lane and Secretary of Education Qarni regarding commencement exercises. During this meeting, school divisions were told to use caution if they were planning for traditional in-person graduation ceremonies because it was highly unlikely that the Governor will be allowing for such large gatherings in the near future. School divisions were encouraged to model procedures used by Louisa County. In an effort to follow all the safety protocols for physical distancing during the filming, students and guests were limited to 5 (graduate & 4 guests) because 4 other school personnel and the videographer will also be present in the gymnasium (maximum is 10). Both high schools have been in touch with Jostens to try and ensure every student's graduation regalia will be available at the time of filming. The filming of the virtual celebration was scheduled for next week in order to be completed in time for students to share with their families on the original graduation date. This video will include other graduation components and special recognition. Seniors will be receiving a survey this week to seek their feedback regarding future graduation possibilities. Page County Public Schools is still prepared to conduct an in-person graduation ceremony once we are allowed to do so - whenever that may be. Again, our intention with the virtual celebration was to provide an additional way to recognize our Seniors. We hope the video serves as a memento. Additionally, each high school has purchased yard signs, hosted “Be the Light” nights, and has been posting senior spotlights on all social media platforms. It has been and will continue to be our goal to give the Seniors the recognition they deserve for their hard work over the past thirteen years.
Page County Public Schools would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our hard-working, dedicated teachers. Since we are not able to be in school this year, we'd like to encourage you and your child to participate in our own little "Thank You" recognition for our division. Sometime this week, have your child write a note or make a card/poster, take a picture and post it in the comments. So that everyone sees the participation, please submit the pictures in the comments on the Page County Public Schools Facebook Page for all of us to enjoy. Please share.

Attention All Winter and Spring Athletes: Due to the Covid 19 virus many of our school issued practice and/or game uniforms have not been returned. We feel we are at a point where we can start working on our athletic inventories and request all uniforms that have not already been returned be turned in. The uniform collection dates and times are as follows: Tuesday, 5/12/20, Wednesday, 5/13/20, and Thursday, 5/14/20. Uniforms may be returned to the Page and Luray High School commons areas on these dates with the collections starting at 8:30am and ending at 11:30am each of the three days. Coach Knight with softball will be at PCHS on Thursday, 5/14/20, and would prefer softball uniforms be returned that day, if possible. If not, please bring them in on Tuesday or Wednesday. Please contact Mr. Ehlers or Mr. Cubbage if you have any questions. Please share.
If ever there was a group that deserved recognition, especially during this time, it's our cafeteria and Nutritional Services staff. To Jennie Jeffries, her assistant Kate Comer, and to all of PCPS Nutritional Services staff (and to the volunteers who have assisted), we applaud you for your hard work everyday, and especially since the end of March when your dedication to the students and community of Page County was never more obvious. YOU are the true Lunch Heroes! Today, we celebrate you!
A Message to Our Page County Public Schools Community: A new program will allow PCPS students who are qualified to receive free or reduced price meals to also be eligible for additional assistance through a pandemic EBT program. We do not have all of the specifics or timeline yet, but this project will be in addition to the free meal delivery for all children 18 and under that is already occurring. If your child was already approved for free or reduced price meals, you do not have to do anything. If you were not already qualified for free/reduced price meals, families can still apply online at www.lunchapplication.com or can request a paper application by calling the Central Office (540) 743-6533 ext. 2816 or by e-mailing email@example.com. If a family was denied free/reduced price meals earlier in the school year, but there has been a change in the household income, the number of people living in the household, or someone in the household is now receiving SNAP or TANF benefits, you may reapply. Those families who have a new address (which has not been previously reported to the school), should contact their home school to make sure it is updated. Please contact the Nutritional Services Office (540) 743-6533 with any questions. This institution is an equal opportunity provider. Thank you, and please share.
