Hello Pershing Families,

I hope your Spring Break with your children was enjoyable and a welcome break from it all. School resumes tomorrow, Monday, April 5th, with Cohort B & Cohort C in Distance Learning and Cohort A in person Monday and Tuesday mornings. We will see Cohort B in person on Thursday and Friday mornings.

Thank you for your help in our transition to "In Person" learning the week prior. We know it was not without bumps, but it was much smoother due to your patience, support and understanding. There may be more changes coming, so please stay up to date on SJUSD Board Updates by viewing them on the San Juan Unified website. The next SJUSD Board meeting will be April 13th. To keep communication clear and consistent, you will receive notifications about updates and changes directly from the District. Please keep your email and phone information up to date so you are able to receive information in a timely manner, as it is shared. If you need assistance in updating your information and/or emergency contacts for your student(s), please contact our office at 916-979-8076.
