Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I am humbled and honored to serve as your superintendent of public schools. What a privilege it is to serve as an educator today! We currently face some of our most difficullt times in the history of public education, bit the challenges of today are what make this work most rewarding. Now more than ever, our students need to be surrounded by caring, compassionate, and competent adults who will challenge, encourage, help, and nurture them along their public school journey to success.
Our PCS staff, students, and parents worked collaboratively to achieve success during the uncertainty of the spring. Since May 2020, our focus has turned to our return in August. Given the changes our community has undertaken as a result of COVID-19, this school year will be like no other. It brings the opportunity to rise above challenges and show the best of PErson County Schools.
In order to lay the footing for a successful schoolyear, it is important that you review the information contained within the Parent Gazette. Please share and stress what is applicable to each student in your home.
Keep this Gazette for your future reference throughout what we know will be a very successful school year for us all. Thank you for entrusting us with your most prized possession, your student. I extend my best wishes to you and your student for a great 2020-2021 school year.
Dr. Rodney Peterson
