We are a crew setting sail into tomorrow’s world.
Hello Palencia Elementary Pirate families!
We have finished the second nine weeks! Below are some reminders and important information:
Morning drop off begins at 8:05 AM.
Our arrival and dismissal drop off / pick locations will remain the same as last year. New this year, the Sheriff’s Office has reassigned PSAs (Police Service Assistants) throughout the district. There will no longer be a PSA directing traffic on Palencia Village Drive. We will continue to have crossing guards in place.
Together in Education, Catherine Goodrich

Early Check Out: For the safety of all students, children may not be checked out of school after 2:15 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday and 1:15 on Wednesday. Please use the Dismissal Absence Change form for early dismissal and all absences.
