In order to meet our families where they are and ensure everyone remains safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering both on-campus and at-home versions of PBDA’s academic program for the duration of the 2020-2021 academic year.
Resources for Parents
As a school celebrating its centennial year during the ’20-’21 school year, PBDA values the long-standing traditions that have made us a “family school.” To help you and your family navigate the school year with us, we’ve created a Parent Resource Page to serve as your go-to for all pertinent PBDA questions.
For the ’20-’21 school year, arrival on the Lower Campus is between 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. for Pre-Primary and Primary, and between 7:45 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. for K-3.
For the ’20-’21 school year, students on the Upper Campus may arrive no earlier than 7:30 a.m. for the start of school at 8 a.m. Students will depart campus immediately following their final class at 2:35 p.m.
To ensure the safety and security of our students, PBDA has implemented specific carpool procedures for the ’20-’21 school year.
Both Lower and Upper Campuses offer a wealth of after-school enrichment opportunities for children who are eager to discover and explore new interests. We also provide aftercare and homework help. *Please note the changes that have been implemented for Fall 2020 due to COVID-19.*
