Welcome to the 2021 - 2022 School Year (8-2-2021)

Plainfield Elementary School
Principal’s Message

Dear Plainfield Families,
       Welcome to the 2021-22 school year! For those of you with us last school year, I want to restate my thanks and gratitude for all your support and flexibility throughout the pandemic. To those of you who are new to Plainfield, welcome to the Mustang family! We are all here to support you and we are excited to meet you soon!

      I am pleased to announce that we will begin the 2021-2022 school year on Thursday, August 19th in Phase 4 - which means students will be back in person full-time, with some restrictions (e.g. face covering worn by all students and staff indoors, students prescreened for illness by parent/guardian before coming to school, frequent handwashing, staying home if ill or experiencing symptoms of illness, no large crowds, etc.). As a result of these restrictions, Back to School Nights across WJUSD will be virtual.  We will host our Virtual B2SN on Monday, August 23rd at 5:30 pm.  More information (schedule, Zoom or Google Meet Links) will come as we get closer to the date.

      This Sunday, August 8th, Catalyst Church is inviting all 2021 WJUSD elementary students to a free event at the Woodland High Stadium and will be giving away backpacks of choice - filled with school supplies.  Plainfield's time to attend the event is from 11 am to 12 pm.  Please see the link (Back2School Carnival) on the right for more information.

      As you may know, last year we went paperless for all the required beginning of year information packets for families to complete. Emergency cards, address verification/changes, etc. will continue to be completed through the Data Confirmation period using your Aeries Parent Portal. For those who are new to us, we will be mailing you the information to set up your portal so you can complete the Data Confirmation process. The Data Confirmation period begins today (August 2) and closes September 3rd. Once you sign up for a Parent Portal Account and complete the Data Confirmation, you can register for Parent Square - which is our number one way of communication (download using the App Store or Google Play).  If you have any questions or need assistance, please call the office at 530-662-9301.

      For families that need transportation services, you must fill out the transportation request on the district website or use the link on the right side of this post.  Students are allowed to ride the bus after request and release forms are submitted to and cleared by the WJUSD transportation department.  If you need any assistance in filling out the form, please contact our office.  

      I look forward to another productive school year and hope that your remaining days of summer vacation are wonderful.  Take care and I will be in touch.
Mr. Pinegar 
Class Lists 
      Due to current restrictions we are unable to hold our annual Ice Cream Social and Class list posting on campus at this time.  Class lists will be posted on our website (using student ID #) by August 16.  If you need your student's ID number please contact our office.
