"Good evening Sylvan Hills Middle families. We understand tomorrow is Valentine's Day and you want to show your child the love. But we ask that you please refrain from sending gifts to the school office for your child. Thank you for understanding."
PCSSD closed Sylvan Hills HS (main) today due to a viable threat that specifically identified staff at the school. The threat was isolated to a specific area which is why only the main campus was closed. We're working with local law enforcement, state police and FBI to resolve.
I was made aware just now of a message that went out about parent conferences that had an incorrect date. Parent conferences are Monday February 10 from 12-6.
