    Dear PCA Families,

    We continue to be pleased with the work that has been done by our school staff and families to provide a safe environment for our students.  We have had a fantastic year so far and are excited to move towards the next steps to bring more normalcy to our classrooms. 
    Beginning Tuesday, March 30th, we will exercise the opportunity to move to Plan A and offer on-campus spots to all of our middle and high school virtual students.  Students will still be required to wear a mask during the school day, however will not be seated 6 feet apart.   It is always our goal to provide the best education possible to our students while providing a safe environment.  

    In order to prepare for this change, Monday, March 29th will now be a Teacher Work Day for all K-12 students.  There will be no school for students on this day.

    If you would like for your child to begin attending on-campus starting March, 30th, please email Mrs. Angela Brooks at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

    If students have a health issue, or if parents prefer for their child to continue to attend virtually, that is an option for all of our families. If you are currently attending in-person but are interested in moving to the virtual setting, you may make that change at any time by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  

    Thank you so much for the support that you continue to show our school.  I can’t wait to see the faces that we have missed so much this year!  

    Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance to you or if you have any questions.

    2021-2022 PCA School Calendar

     


    January 29, 2021

    Dear Pinnacle Classical Academy Family,

    Out of an abundance of caution, we are making a minor change to the school calendar so that we can conduct an intensive, deep cleaning at both campuses.  Please make note of the following dates:

    • Friday, February 12 - Teacher Workday 
    • Monday, February 15 - Holiday​
    • Tuesday, February 16 will now be a Teacher Workday

    Our staff has and will continue to diligently clean according to CDC recommendations with EPA approved products for prevention of the spread of COVID. We continue to ask that you and your child abide by the following federal CDC guidelines to protect your health and those of Pinnacle Classical Academy:

    • Wash your hand often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. 
    • Follow all recommendations provided by the CDC

    It is our goal at PCA to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our students and staff.  We appreciate your help as we have navigated through the first part of the school year with minimal disruptions. This would not be possible without the help and support of the entire Pinnacle family. 

    Thank you,



    Dr. Shelly Bullard
    Headmaster

    Dear PCA Parents, 

    I hope you have had a wonderful holiday and restful break. We, at PCA, are thankful for our students and their families. We are honored that you choose PCA for the education of your child.  The fact that you trust us to educate, love, nurture, and keep your children safe is a great responsibility - and one that we do not take lightly.  Thank you!

    As we look towards returning to school on January 4th, we want to encourage you to take advantage of the free COVID testing being offered around our area before school starts back.  If you have spent time with family and friends outside of your normal circle, it is a good idea to get tested prior to heading back to work or school. Below, I have included a link that will direct you to testing sites offered around our area. https://covid19.ncdhhs.gov/

    We know that over the next few weeks it will be crucial for all of us to be aware of signs and symptoms of COVID.  If your child has any symptoms, please do not send them to school. As always, if someone in your family has been exposed please contact the school immediately.  You may contact our school nurse, Mrs. Leah Costner, at lcostner@pinnacleclassicalacademy.com, or call her direct line at 704-740-4032.

    We look forward to seeing our students back on January 4th.

    Wishing you a Happy New Year,
    Dr. Shelly Bullard
    Headmaster

    Dear Pinnacle Classical Academy Family,

    It is hard to believe that we are nearing the end of the first semester of the school year.  I am proud of the way that our school family has worked together to meet the challenges that we faced.  The partnership and support that we receive from our families is nothing short of outstanding.  Working together, we have provided a safe learning environment for our students. 

    We look forward to welcoming back our students who have signed up to return at the end of the semester.  If you originally signed up to return but would like to stay in the Virtual Academy beyond the end of the semester, please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and we can accommodate your request. If you registered to attend virtually until the end of the year,  you must continue with that plan. However, if you are currently attending in-person but are interested in moving to the virtual setting, you may make that change.

    Thank you so much for the support that you continue to show our school as we navigate these very difficult decisions.  It has been and continues to be our goal to have all of our students in the building full-time.  This is something that we will continue to work towards.

    Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance to you or if you have any questions.

    Good afternoon Pinnacle Classical Academy,

    We continue to be pleased with the work that has been done by our school staff and families to provide a safe environment for our students. We have had a fantastic year so far and are excited to move towards the next steps to bring more normalcy to our classrooms. 

    We are very excited to be able to offer high school students the opportunity to return to five days, a week in person instruction. We are confident that students learn best in a classroom environment where students can immediately ask questions as they arise and can be monitored and assessed on a frequent basis during each class. Teachers are able to provide direct feedback and adjust instruction based on what they are able to observe in the classroom. 

     

    As we are able to move to a five day a week, in-person instructional day, please know that all high school students will continue to be six feet apart and masks will still be required to be worn in the classroom. All high school students are encouraged to begin returning to the five-day, in-person education on Monday, November 16, 2020. School will begin at 8:00 each morning and dismissal will be at 2:05. Schedules will be reprinted as some classrooms will be moved to larger environments such as the band room and the downstairs media center. Homeroom teachers will email students by Friday afternoon the room number they will report to on Monday morning. Students will receive their updated schedules at that time. 

     

    If students have a health issue, or if parents prefer for your child to attend our virtual academy, that is an option for all of our high school families. If you would like for your student to attend as a completely virtual student please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

    Thank you so much for the support that you continue to show our school as we navigate these very difficult decisions. It has been and continues to be our goal to have all of our students in the building full time while respecting the health concerns of those who wish to learn virtually at this time. This is something that we will continue to work towards.

    Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance to you or if you have any questions.

    Sincerely,

    Dear Fourth and Fifth Grade Families,

    We continue to be pleased with the work that has been done by our school staff and families to provide a safe environment for our students.  We have had a fantastic year so far and are excited to move towards the next steps to bring more normalcy to our classrooms. 

    Beginning Monday, November 16th, we will exercise the opportunity that has been provided by the Governor to move our 4th and 5th-grade students back to their home classrooms. We are encouraged by the data that continue to show a low level of spread in this age range.  Students will still be required to wear a mask during the school day, and we will continue to encourage social distancing.  It is always our goal to provide the best education possible to our students while providing a safe environment.  

    At this time, we will not be offering on-campus spots to 4th and 5th-grade virtual students.  We will open on-campus offerings to all interested 4th and 5th-grade students at the end of the semester.   If students have a health issue, or if parents prefer for your child to attend our virtual academy, that is an option for all of our families. If you are currently attending in-person but are interested in moving to the virtual setting, you may make that change at any time by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

    Dear Pinnacle Classical Academy Family,

    We have had a wonderful opening of school!  As anticipated, these first six weeks have been filled with many new challenges for our school family.   I am pleased to say that we have worked together to meet these challenges and have provided a safe environment for our students.  

    We are going to continue with the plan that we have in place.  We are well ahead of the opening plans of many schools around the state by already providing the option of daily, on-campus instruction for our K-8 students.  Maintaining the recommendation of  6 ft social distancing in our classrooms is a key tool to minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19 for our students, staff, and families as well as to minimize the number of students who would need to be quarantined in the event of a case on campus. 

    We look forward to welcoming back our students who have signed up to return at the end of the first quarter.  If you originally signed up to return but would like to stay in the Virtual Academy beyond the end of the first quarter, please email me at sbullard@pinnacleclassicalacademy.com, and we can accommodate your request. If you registered to attend virtually until the semester or chose the year-long option, you must continue with that plan. However, if you are currently attending in-person but are interested in moving to the virtual setting, you may make that change.

    Thank you so much for the support that you continue to show our school as we navigate these very difficult decisions.  It has been, and continues to be, our goal to have all of our students in the building full-time.  This is something that we will continue to work towards.

    Dear Pinnacle Classical Academy Family,

    On behalf of the faculty and staff of Pinnacle Classical Academy, I am extremely pleased to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year!

    We have spent a great deal of the summer planning and preparing for the upcoming school year. A tremendous amount of time, effort and thought has gone into the process of student placement, classroom placement, and following health and safety guidelines. We are excited to welcome our K-8 students to campus from 8:00 - 2:00, five days a week. Our high school students will be attending from 8:00 - 2:00, two days a week.  In order four us to do this, we are utilizing every bit of space that we can.  “School” will not look the same, classrooms will not look the same, spaces that are not designed as classrooms will now be utilized as classrooms. However, we will have our students in the school building and we are thrilled to make that happen.  Class lists and schedules will be mailed next week.

    In line with things looking different, I invite you to attend our Open House.  Yes, this will look a bit different, as well.  We will have multiple 1-hour sessions with 30 minute intervals between sessions for cleaning.  It is important that you arrive on time for the session for which you sign up.  We will have to keep a tight schedule so that all parents are able to meet with the teachers.  Respectfully, we ask that you minimize the number of people in your family who attend.  Please understand that we must follow all guidelines and mandates - which is why we are limiting the number of attendees per time frame.  

    Open House Sign up:

    1st – 3rd Grades Open House Sign Up 1st - 3rd Grade

    4th-12th Grades - Open House Sign Up 4th - 12th Grade

    **Any student who is attending our Virtual Academy may come during Open House times to check out a Chromebook.  We will be accepting the $25.00 Technology Fee at that time.**

    Mrs. Clary will be sending information about Kindergarten Orientation.
      Be on the lookout for information coming soon about this special day.

    Thank you so much for having positive conversations with your child about the upcoming year, their new teacher(s) and the changes that they will be seeing. We feel very confident in the plan we have put together. We’ve worked hard to make sure our plan is well thought out and will continue to provide the education for which we are known.

    Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance to you or if you have any questions.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Shelly Bullard
