Teacher Walk Out and School Closure Update – Monday, April 30

Hello PFFS Community:
So as you know the situation is dynamic and ever-changing.  We are working to set up a system that will provide you with timely, up-to-date information.  In addition to updating the website, we will send out an email daily to keep the community updated.
Today’s update is that SCHOOL WILL BE CLOSED on Monday, April 30.  We will not be offering any services at 47 E. Pennington on Monday.  All three CITY Center for Collaborative Learning schools will be completely closed.
We know this is a hardship for some, so we are sharing some community resources.
Finally, if you want to reach out to other families to think about shared childcare – let me know and I can help to facilitate that internal communication.
Thanks for your continued patience and support.  The words of encouragement you have been sending us and meant the world!
