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. The proposal is to launch the year with all students in distance learning until the Labor Day holiday as we phase in our hybrid approach, moving, at some point when health conditions allow, to a modified traditional setting. Our rationale for this proposal is based on the current status of COVID-19 here in Riverside County. When we begin the hybrid model, approximately 50 percent of the students will be on campus for some of the week and on distance learning the remainder of the time. The intent of a hybrid model is to give students in-person on campus instruction while being able to maintain social distancing and minimize physical interaction risks when students are physical on school grounds. The particulars of the hybrid approach will be communicated after our Board gives input and takes action on Tuesday." - Dr. Sandra Lyon, PSUSD Superintendent (Please read full article below or at
