    Preparing your student for coming to school

    Keeping students from becoming ill or transmitting the virus to other students requires a partnership between the school community, families, and guardians. We all need to commit to doing our best to make sure our students are protected as much as possible. Our unified efforts will prevent COVID-19 from spreading to students, your families, and your child's classmates. Together we can keep each other safe.

    Checklist for Parents/Caregivers

    ✓ Before each student leaves home for school each day, parents should conduct a health screening.

    ✓ If your student has a specific medical condition that makes them more at risk to COVID-19, contact the school and ask about alternative learning.

    ✓ Monitor any symptoms from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. Students with the following symptoms may have COVID-19 and should not go to school:

    • Fever or chills

    • Cough

    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

    • Fatigue

    • Muscle or body aches

    • Headache

    • New loss of taste or smell

    Before and After School Daycare

    Pleasant Valley School and District

    Pleasant Valley School, nestled in the beautiful vineyard covered hills of San Miguel has been creating successful learners and members of the community since 1884.  Students in kindergarten through sixth grade attend this wonderful school, and despite its small size, the school still provides the equivalent 21st Century education that is available in the much larger districts.

    The school community prides itself on its long-standing tradition of strong parent and community involvement. Yearly events, such as the Harvest Festival, Color Run, and Thanksgiving Feast add to the sense of community involvement in the school.

    The faculty and staff of PVS are highly qualified, caring professionals who promote a warm, safe, and family-oriented atmosphere.  They value pride in education and life-long learning. The small class sizes and high staff to student ratios mean that students can receive individual help for their educational and other needs. One-to-one technology and a dedicated science STEM lab are just two of the great offerings that this tiny but mighty school has to offer. 

    Pleasant Valley School is a little out of the way but not too hard to find. It's just a short 15-minute drive NE of Paso Robles. Stop by and check us out!
