Virtual Learning Update!

Dear PAPA Families,

Thank you for your thoughtful responses to the survey we sent few weeks ago.  PAPA administration and our Governing Council carefully considered your comments.  The PED has not yet released guidance documents for re-entry for middle or high school and there are many unanswered questions about returning in person.  As a result, PAPA will remain in virtual learning until the end of Semester 1.  

PAPA will, however, expand our on-campus support of students in need, once we have permission and guidance from PED.  Our goal is to be able to support student learning in the virtual setting at school, improve grades, and promote student engagement.  PAPA continues to follow PED-approved cleaning, sanitation, and safety procedures.  All students and staff must follow COVID guidelines while on campus. I will send more details as soon as we have more guidance.


Our performing arts instructors and club sponsors will create opportunities and events that encourage student interaction.  Some of the activities will be virtual (lunch socials, virtual dances, etc.).  If in-person activities are held, they will comply with the Governor’s orders, DOH and PED guidelines. 


Please join PAPA’s PTSO tomorrow, October 1 at 3:30 pm for a ZOOM meeting (ID:  816 7247 0951, code: panda)!  PTSO’s Panda Mask drive was a success!  You may pick up your pre-purchased masks Monday, October 5th from 8am – 8:30am in the west parking lot.  There are a few extras for purchase! Email for more information.


Thank you for your support!
