Placer Academy WEEKLY UPDATES
February 22, 2021
We are so excited to welcome our K-5 students to our new site on Wednesday, February 24 and our 6-8 students on Monday, March 1. The building looks amazing and the classrooms are so welcoming. We cannot wait for all the students to see it. We are working on a video to share with parents. It's been such a long and arduous process, but we are finally seeing the fruits of our efforts.
Below are the new arrival and dismissal procedures and times. Please read these carefully. Also, please note that we will have several staff members acting as escorts for students the first few days so they don't feel overwhelmed. We are looking forward to seeing most of the students on Wednesday.
Students are encouraged to arrive with time to put their backpacks and personal belongings away before classes begin promptly at 8:15 am. Students should not be dropped off prior to 7:55 am. If there are special circumstances requiring an early drop off, arrangements should be made in advance with the student’s teacher.
Students who arrive after the 8:15 am starting time will need to check in at the office to receive a tardy slip before moving on to class. Late arrivals are disruptive to the classroom and promptness is appreciated. More than 3 tardies during a trimester may result in a conference with parents, student, teacher and administrator to strategize solutions for the remainder of the school year.
Upon arrival, students will walk to their classroom by using the designated entrances. Kids should immediately proceed to their classrooms and follow the teacher’s morning procedures. Students should enter the classroom respectfully and begin their morning work.
Please follow the following directions:
Students will follow a staggered dismissal schedule. All students will be in front of the school by grade level/class for pick-up. Please follow the following directions:
12:10 pm – 12:20 pm: Families A-E
12:20 pm – 12:30 pm: Families F-N
12:30 pm – 12:40 pm: Families O-Z
In anticipation of our return to in-person learning on February 24, below are a few health and safety considerations to keep in mind:

FARM FRESH TO YOU FUNDRAISER:
Are you trying to eat healthier this year? Did you know you can get fresh produce delivered directly to your door, and support Placer Academy at the same time? PTO is working with Farm Fresh to You (FFTY), to help us fundraise this year. It is a great way to earn money for our school, with very little effort.
To kick off this new partnership, FFTY has generously donated a box of produce for us to use in a raffle. The first 5 people who sign up for FFTY will get entered into the raffle. One lucky winner will get a gift certificate for a box of fresh organic fruits and vegetables delivered to their front door ($35 value). The winner will be announced as soon as we have enough entries.
The benefits are:
*Organic fruits and vegetables, groceries, and farm products delivered to our doors directly from the FFTY network of local family farms.
*It works like an online farmers market, where you get to pick out what you want, decide how often you need it and skip, change or cancel anytime.
*Our extended family and friends can participate too, since FFTY provides weekly home deliveries to most California cities from Chico to Auburn to San Diego.
*10% of total spend of every order is donated to the school by Farm Fresh to us! Just make sure to use our promo code, PLACERACADEMY, when you order at www.farmfreshtoyou.com.
*Both new and existing members as well as anyone in California can join the giveback program
*The partnership never expires. As long as families are using our program, our school will continue to earn money.
