Happy New Year Dragons!

Dear Phoebe Hearst Families and Friends,

Welcome back and Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful, restful, and eventful winter break. As you prepare to return to school Monday, here are a few quick announcements and reminders.

Masking Update: Because Sacramento County has reentered the “medium” COIVD-19 community level, the district is not imposing an indoor mask requirement at this time. While masks are not required, they remain highly recommended. Please read the email to view a message from the district with more information.

Rain: Beginning Monday morning, a storm is expected to bring over an inch of rain and 30 mph winds to Sacramento. The forecast also includes the threat of localized flooding on Tuesday with a flood watch continuing through Wednesday. Please monitor the warnings and take necessary precautions. BE SAFE!

Morning Announcements: Reminder about the changes to morning announcements. If you did not yet read, please review the  December 23rd announcement, linked to in the email. Starting Monday, January 9, 2023 (weather pending) full announcements will occur every Monday and Friday. The pledge will continue to be recited together on the blacktop at the start of school each day. An early bell will ring at 7:55 am each day to remind the students to line up.

PTO General Meeting: There will be a PTO meeting on campus on Wednesday, January 11th, beginning at 6pm. The district GATE coordinator, Kari Lofing, will be in attendance to answer any questions about GATE testing and placement.

Golden Dragons: On Friday, January 13th we’ll honor our Golden Dragon winners for December who exhibited being a humanitarian.

Once again, welcome back to school and I am looking forward to seeing your smiling faces!!!
