PSUSD COVID - 19 Information

Keeping PSUSD families informed, connected, safe & learning!

Dear PSUSD Families,

"I hope all of our students, staff members and families are enjoying a well-deserved winter break, and I wish everyone a happy and healthy 2021!

As you may have heard, this week Governor Newsom announced his new plan to move to reopen schools, particularly for students in grades PK-2nd grade, as early as February 15. The plan involves testing for COVID-19 and provides some funding to help school districts do that. The administration will release further details next week and the Legislature, which must approve the funding allocations, will then have its say.

As you know, this timing aligns with our already planned return to a hybrid form of in-person instruction on February 16 for our elementary schools and potential start dates for our middle school students on March 1 and March 22 for our high school students, which is the end of the third quarter. We will be watching closely to see what the Governor’s office releases next week and what the legislature does after that, as we prepare our plan for reopening to present to the Board of Education by the end of the month. And, as you know, any plan for in-person instruction will be predicated by the health conditions in our county and in the Coachella Valley."
