PUSD Update

March 14, 2021

A Message from Superintendent Brian McDonald

Dear PUSD Families and Community,

As we prepare for the eventual return to in-person learning, we are providing our teachers an opportunity to organize their classrooms on March 17, 18, and 19 (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday).

On these dates, teaching and learning will be conducted asynchronously for teachers and students. This means that teachers will post lessons in advance and students will complete assignments independently. There will be no live instruction on these dates.

  • There will be no live instruction on March 17, 18 & 19

  • Please check Canvas for your asynchronous assignments and tasks on these dates.


Brian McDonald, Ed.D.
