PSUSD COVID - 19 Information
Keeping PSUSD families informed, connected, safe & learning!
Dear PSUSD Families,
"What I can tell you is that we are launching the 2020-21 school year on Aug. 5 as scheduled. We are presenting a phased-in approach proposal to our Board of Education on Tuesday evening, July 7. Ultimately our goal will be to transition to 100 percent of all students who wish to attend in person be able to do so in a modified traditional setting. Our proposal is to launch the year with all students in distance learning and to phase-in to our hybrid approach, as health conditions allow, for the safe return of students to campus." - Dr. Sandra Lyon, PSUSD Superintendent (Please read full article below or at www.psusd.us)
