Return to Learn

The link to the PC Return to Learn plan is below.  An update to the plan was released August 13, 2020.  Putnam City Schools traditional learning will begin as Distance Learning on the first day of school, August 27th.  Students enrolled in traditional learning will begin learning in the Distance Learning format for the first nine weeks.  Distance Learning will be re-evaluated at the midway point of the first nine weeks.

UPDATE 8/13/20

Please verify your enrollment for returning students at www.putnamcityschools.org/enrollment

For returning students, this online process replaces the need to verify enrollment in person.  If your student attended Putnam City Schools last year, please verify that enrollment by completing the process online. Returning students require a code to verify their enrollment online. However, if you have not received a code from the District, please contact the Enrollment Office at enrollment@putnamcityschools.org or call 491-7631.  

If you enrolled your child for PC Virtual School, and would now like to transition your child’s enrollment to traditional which will begin as Distance Learning, switch enrollment here: www.putnamcityschools.org/switch

Device Take Home Program

Students must be enrolled by August 21st in order to have a device distributed to them by the first day of school.  A scheduled make-up Device Take Home day will be available after the first day of school, but the August 21st enrollment deadline will ensure your student begins the school year with a device.  Sites will contact you directly with Device Take Home Program information, please check your school web site for schedules.  Sites will require an I.D. to pick-up devices.

More information on expectations and responsibilities for device care are on our web site. Also, please see the Internet Connectivity tab on our web site for information and resources.

Free & Reduced Meal Program

While school is beginning with Distance Learning, it is still important for every family to complete a Free and Reduced application at:

www.myschoolapps.com

In addition to accurate meal counts, this service is important because if your family has been approved for the Free and Reduced program, other resources are available for internet connectivity based on that service. More information on these qualifying programs is listed on our web site under the Internet Connectivity tab.  

Meal Program

On the first day of school, August 27th designated sites will begin serving meals for curbside pick-up. This is different from the summer meal program.  Each site will have specific information for their school meal program.  All meals will be curbside pick-up.  Not all sites will have food distributed at their location.  Some sites will have to pick-up meals at other locations.  Please check your school’s web site.  Breakfast and lunch will be served at designated serving sites Monday through Friday from 10:00am to 12:00pm.  Please bring your I.D.  This service is for Putnam City students only. Parents with appropriate identification may pick-up their students’ meals even if the student is not present.  Please check with your school site to find out your specific meal pick-up location, and also information about the free and reduced meal programs, and regular school meal pricing.

Special Education

IEPs for the 2020-2021 school year will require amendments to identify the services, accommodations, and supports that will be provided virtually during the timeframe the district has determined Distance Learning for all students is necessary.

Special Education teachers and staff return to work on August 17th and will begin contacting parents to discuss your child’s IEP and amendments as appropriate.
