Dear Bearcat Students, Parents, Families, and Community,

Starting this week your tutorial teacher will be reaching out to you to make sure you have the things you need to start distance learning on March 30, 2020. Students should start getting into the routine check their school email and Google Classrooms each day by 9:00 am and again at some point during the day. All you will need is your Chromebook and an internet connection. I know several of you have left school supplies including textbooks and notebooks at school or in your locker. You will not need them. Your teachers will contact you through Google Classroom and provide everything you will need.

Please remember that all updated and information regarding PRHS during the COVID-19 school closure will be posted at www.pasoschools.org/bearcatstrong.

If you need support with your Chromebook, Chromebook charger, or establishing an internet connection please email helpdesk@pasoschools.org or call (805) 769-1000 between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm Monday-Friday.

Sincerely,

Principal Overton

Dear Bearcat Students, Parents, and Guardians,

As we prepare for online and distance learning opportunities, we know many students might have left campus on Friday leaving their Chromebooks and charging cord behind or have Chromebooks that are not working or missing charge cords. If you left your device behind or have any other device issues please go to www.pasoschools.org/bearcatstrong and complete the form at any time before 2:00 pm tomorrow or call (805) 769-1500 between 8:00 am and 2:00 pm tomorrow. We will work to retrieve those items and arrange for pick up in front of the school.

Students that have issues or concerns with their Chromebooks can also fill out the form for assistance. Students without access to the internet at home can get support in the near future when new hotspots arrive. Contact Ronalee Andersen at randersen@pasoschools.org or calling (805) 769-1000 for any other technical assistance.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Dear Bearcat Students, Parents, Families, and Community,

First, I want to acknowledge the patience, understanding, and kindness displayed by our Bearcat family as we adjust to the temporary closure of PRHS. We will be posting all updates and information for Paso Robles High School at www.pasoschools.org/bearcatstrong. All district updates will be posted at www.pasoschools.org/covid19.

The current plan based on the recommendation from the County Office of Education includes faculty and staff working next week (March 23-27) on distance learning opportunities for our students for the following week (March 30-April 2nd). I know the delay can be frustrating and challenging. I want to reassure both students and families that we are working diligently to address the impact these events will have on your education to the best of our abilities. In the meantime, the district has provided Voluntary Enrichment Activities for Grades 6-12 at www.pasoschools.org/covid19.

While the circumstances we find ourselves in are challenging and unprecedented, I am looking forward to showing the world what we as a community can do to continue to serve our students' needs while we practice social responsibility to help end this crisis. I encourage you to follow the recommendation of federal, state, and county health organization.

I have the utmost faith that when we look back on these tough times the faculty, staff, students, and community will be able to say we made the most of challenging circumstances and are stronger Bearcats as a result.

Sincerely,

Principal Overton
