Back at Parent Orientation 2019, I mentioned that as a ministry we were planning to replace the parking lot. We have kept that commitment, have been working with contractors, and have already paid a very large deposit to start the project. When the pandemic began, we put a hold on the project with a deadline in August. Our deadline has arrived and so as to not lose the big deposit we have already paid, we are moving forward with the work. Starting August 3rd, our lot will be transformed. Places to park will be disrupted during this time so it has made it necessary to go virtual with our Packet Pick-up Day that was originally scheduled for August 14th. In addition to getting a much needed new parking lot, we also believe you will love the new systems we are building that will make your life much easier.
All forms you normally turn in on that day will be submitted electronically, and when you have completed and submitted all of them, you will receive an email with your student’s secondary schedule and elementary class list. Provided that you submit all forms in a timely manner, your class list and schedules will be emailed to you on August 14th in the afternoon. In a time of information overload, we are feverishly working to include everything in one email with links for your convenience. We trust that this temporary adjustment will make school forms more accessible. This information will also be published on our website with all of the need-to-know information for returning to school.
We know many questions will arise due to this change, so hopefully, the following list provides those answers!

Student & Parent Technology Onboarding Plan
We will offer a new STUDENT page for resources and materials students will need via Plymouth Christian Academy’s website. All resources for Google Classroom and Microsoft Applications will be provided via video, pdf, and presentation. Parents, this includes materials for Guardian Access on Google Classroom. Materials will be accessible 24/7. One excellent resource we will provide is the ability to submit technology questions and concerns in real-time to IT & Google SuperUsers. You will find access to this form on the new PCA student webpage. Watch your email for information regarding this page and your password to access it, your Google Credentials, and more.
