Evening Tutoring and Study Hour

Dear Families,
BeginningTuesday, November 1st, our tutoring sessions will be offered from 3:10 - 5:10 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Pleasanton Middle School Library. In talking with students, families, and teachers, it seems best to offer the tutoring services after school rather than later in the evening.

The Study Hour will still take place Monday - Thursday from 3:10 - 4:10 in the library, as we have been doing.

The model will entail the following options:
Study Hour from 3:10 - 4:10 pm Monday - Thursday.
Combination: Study Hour and Tutoring from 3:10 - 5:10 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Important Safety Concerns

No pickle is to be played on campus at any time. Anyone who throws a water bottle will be assigned detention.
