Day One Message to the Force From Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III

Day One Message to the Force From Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III

January 22, 2021 I am honored to have this chance to serve again and to do so alongside you and your families. My wife, Charlene, and I know all too well the sacrifices you make to keep this country safe. That safety is job one, and I promise to work as hard as you do at it.
Family Information 1-22

Pierce Terrace is excited for our transition to in-person learning on Monday, January 25, 2021.  As we prepare for our students’ arrival back to school on January 25, Pierce Terrace has established practices and processes to ensure the safety of all learning community members during in-person learning.  Our Parent Information Session (Principal Forum) presentation is included for families to review or to update those families who were unable to attend the Forum.  In addition, the Home-Based Screening Acknowledgement is included for parents to review.  The Acknowledgement was also forwarded to all families on Thursday, January 14 through an AtHoc message.  All families are required to submit a signed Acknowledgement prior to their child attending in-person learning.  More importantly, all parents are to pre-screen their child prior to departing each day for school.
