Welcome to the beginning of a fresh, exciting school year at PECI, your K to 12 County community school! Firstly, we thank all families and community partners for their patience and support as we work together to create a safe, positive transition for our students from the fun of summer vacation to the fun of learning and growing at school. The following message outlines first day procedures for student arrival that will ensure that we all begin our 2018-2019 school year in the best manner possible.
Students Who Ride the Bus to School:
All bus students will be met by staff as their buses arrive. Secondary students will enter the building through the Main Entrance (A) and Entrance B at the front of the school. Elementary students will enter through Entrance C with their staff escort and move together to a gathering place reflective of their grade. Primary students in Grade K to 3 will be gathering in our elementary gym (formerly known as Gym A). Junior and Intermediate in Grades 4 to 8 students will be gathering at the rear of the school.
Students Who are Dropped Off at School:
Secondary students dropped off at school will enter through the Main Entrance (A) and Entrance B at the front of the school. Elementary students dropped off at school will enter through Entrance E (formerly known as Sunnyside and now our Primary ‘Kiss & Drop Entrance’). Primary students in Grades K to 3 will be welcomed by staff and escorted to our elementary gym (Gym A). Junior and Intermediate students in Grades 4 to 8 will be greeted by staff and escorted to a meeting place at the rear of the school.
From the specified gathering spaces, students will be met by their teachers and assembled in to their designated classes according to teachers’ class lists. Teachers will then escort their students to their new learning spaces and the first adventures of learning at PECI, K-12 will begin.
If you have questions regarding any of these details, please reach out to the main office. We look forward to learning and working with you and your students.
To all of our new elementary Panther families...
We realize the transition to a new school is a significant change in both your students' and your lives. We will post specific details regarding our first day processes including where to drop your student off, busing procedures, how they will be connected with their classroom teacher and any other pertinent details early next week. Please know that we are focused on culture of care as we work through the fine details.
We have a phenomenal staff who are committed to ensuring your students have an outstanding year and we look forward to working with you. Thank you for your patience.

The graduating class of 2018 looked fabulous at Prom on Friday evening. The Gazebo Restaurant located at the Waupoos Winery were incredible hosts and provided a truly succulent meal. DJ Jason Ferguson of Definitive Entertainment Productions kept the party rockin' all evening and our Panthers shone.
