Good Evening Farrand Families, Hello Farrand Foxes
Mrs. Washington here with your weekend updates.
On Tuesday, the first half day of school begins at 8:55 a.m. and ends at 12:01. Thank you to our parents and students who were able to attend Open House on Wednesday. What an opportunity to meet new friends and renew friendships with friends from the previous school year.
Thank you to our dedicated Farrand parents who came to help with weeding and maintenance of our school grounds this summer. It takes a village and the Farrand Community certainly is a supportive village.
Bus students, we resume our cafeteria bus line up. When your bus arrives, you will be called to meet your bus in front of the school. I will be there to make sure you get on safely. Boys and girls, do not forget to walk on the fox tracks when boarding so that we are clearly out of the path of the big busses.
See you on Tuesday and remember to wear your masks on the bus and inside of the school.
Thank you for listening
And now for District News:
On Friday, August 27, the Wayne County Public Health Division released an Emergency Order for Control of Pandemic for all schools across Wayne County. Effective Immediately, all staff, students and visitors, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, are required by law to wear masks in Wayne County Schools. This order will remain in effect until community transmission within Wayne County is categorized as “Moderate” by the CDC for at least 14 consecutive days.Our P-CCS Mitigation Plans for 2021-22 have been updated to include the current masking requirements as outlined in the WCHD order.
Please be assured that we will continue to monitor local transmission data and trends and stay in close contact with the experts at the Wayne County Health Department. And no matter what direction the pandemic takes in the coming weeks and months, we remain ready to pivot in order to keep everyone safe. Our goal is to provide in-person learning for the entire year and we believe this new mask mandate from the county gives us our best chance to do just that.

Food shortage and supply chain are nationwide issues, and our district cafeterias also may experience unavailable items or last minute replacements. While we will do our best to ensure consistency, menus are subject to change. We will do our best to notify you if there are any changes. Menus onpccsk12.nutrislice.com may not reflect these changes. If you have a concern, please contact your Cafeteria Manager to verify the menu of the day.
