PCPS has offered a vaccination incentive of an activity day absence for all PCMS & PCHS students who have started the Covid vaccination process by today. PCHS students can use their activity day absence on Friday, September 17, 2021 and PCMS students can use theirs on Monday, September 20, 2021. The names of these students are on record at each school. The activity day code is the one used when a student is working on a service learning project as a way to improve our community and does not register as an absence on the student's record. Students who miss either of these days using a parent note (whether it be an original letter or the form letter that has been shared on social media) will be coded as a parent contact absence for which they are allowed up to 10 per year before absences count toward the truancy process. Parent contact absences do count as an absence in the student's record.
Pulaski County Public Schools plans to hold in-person instruction at all schools for all five days next week. This decision was made based on the number of employees scheduled to return from quarantine and because we have re-activated the standby substitute list. Pulaski County Middle School will still be on a virtual day for Friday, September 17, 2021.

The Pulaski County Public Schools transportation department is continuing to make progress on developing and adjusting regular routes for the 2021-2022 school year. We were able to complete all runs approximately one hour earlier yesterday than the day before. However, driver shortages continue to impact our ability to get times back to where they were during pre-Covid years, so evening arrival times of 5:00 or later may unfortunately become the norm on some routes. Please know that we still expect to have number of delays today and into next week although they should become less frequent each day. We’re hopeful that we’ll have routes and times somewhat solidified by the end of next week. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
The PCPS transportation department has been working to improve afternoon bus routes. We expect transportation to go better today but still recognize that there might be delays of 30 minutes or more on some runs. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

We apologize for the fact that high school bus routes were not posted yesterday evening. The building of routes during a pandemic with a driver shortage that seems to grow by the day has been more difficult than anticipated. The easy solution would have been to return to last year’s modified routes but we’ve been committed to returning things this year to as close to normal as we can get them. Please know that transportation staff are already on the job this morning trying to get the remaining few details ironed out and that routes will be posted as soon as possible. The routes should run at a time similar to what they were in 2019-2020. Parents can call the numbers below for more specific information. Also, we will have van drivers on standby this morning to pick up any high school student who misses the bus and parent transportation isn’t an option. Just call to request a pick-up. Once again, we are extremely sorry for the anxiety and frustration this issue has caused and hope that everyone otherwise experiences a great first day of school. 540-643-0814 or 540-643-815
