A Message from the Principal

Dear Capitol Hill School Parents and Families,

It is with a great deal of gratitude and relief that we can tell you the following: The school district and teachers' union have reached a conceptual agreement and will reconvene later today to complete a tentative agreement that would suspend the strike planned for Thursday, Feb. 20. (This is also posted on the PPS website www.pps.net .)

School Schedule:

Tuesday, Feb. 18regular school day. At Capitol Hill, ExAcademy will be in session. However, all Community Uses of PPS Buildings remain cancelled for Feb. 18, meaning there will be no CLC classes today after school.

Wednesday, Feb. 19 - NO LATE START School will still dismiss 2 1/2 hours early. Capitol Hill School will start at 8:00 AM and dismiss at 11:45 AM after lunch. Busses will be here at that time to load. There will be NO EXACADEMY or CLC since there is an early dismissal.

Thursday & Friday, Feb. 20 & 21 - School will be in session at regular hours. ExAcademy and CLC will be open!

This has been a very trying time for our community as contract negotiations extended into months and the possibility of a teacher’s strike became more real this past week. Thank you all for your patience, understanding and support. Continue to stay tuned for updates and check the pps.net website for further information.


Pam Wilson, Principal
