Dear Elementary Parents,

We teach our boys to be Bold Adventurers in life, and now it seems we all have an opportunity to be bold as we adjust to a new adventure in teaching and learning. While PDS is quite comfortable with the use of technology as a classroom tool, distance learning is new territory for us all. Thank you in advance for your flexibility as we work to balance the health of our community and the pursuit of academics.

Here is an overview of what you can expect while we conduct school from home.
