Reopening Note from our K-8 Director

July 20, 2020

Wow, what a dynamic time to be alive. Back in March, Sigrid and I were planning on a smooth transition as she moved into retirement and I moved to fill her huge shoes as Director of the K-8 site of the Pacific School. Few could have imagined how much has changed since then. Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, I have worked hard with our Management Team to stay informed through regular  communications with the District, the County and the State for recommendations and guidance of how to best meet the needs of our students during distance learning, and how and when to reopen our school in a way that is safe for students, families, teachers, and all support staff. 

As I look forward to the year ahead, I feel excited and determined to face the challenges ahead. I believe that the Pacific School can best support our students by remaining committed to community, local place-based education, project based learning, and meeting each child where they are in order to help them grow. Thank you for your choice to be a part of the vision of Pacific Community Charter School!
