Per the March 11, 2021 letter from Superintendent Edward Ewers, Penta Career Center will return to Schedule 1 beginning March 16, 2021. As a reminder, Schedule 1 is when all students report to campus Tuesday - Friday with Monday being a remote learning day. The schedule change was approved by the Penta Board of Education on March 10, 2021. This move by the Board is, in many ways, based on our local data related to COVID cases, as well as the modification to the quarantine rules released by the Wood County Health Department. Further details of the health department's updated guidance can be found on our website at https://www.pentacareercenter.org/Announcements.aspx
