Good evening, Phoebe families,
New Materials Pick-up/Drop-off Procedure
As our community sees a rise in our COVID cases and our region was recently put on a stay at home order, Phoebe will have new materials pick up protocols beginning tomorrow, December 14th. Our office hours will remain the same which is 7:30-3:30 Monday – Friday. However, we ask that all families drive up and wait in the circle drop off in front of the office when picking up student materials. You will then call our front office phone number 916-395-4685 and a member of our staff will bring your child’s items to you. We ask that you please wear a mask. This new procedure will ensure the safety of our staff and community as we get through these winter months.
