PUSD In-person Programs Temporarily Suspended

Dear PUSD Community,

Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases, the Pasadena and Los Angeles County Public Health Departments have recommended that schools suspend in-person learning programs until the end of January. By deferring in-person programming for just a few weeks, we can have a significant impact on reducing the rate of transmission of COVID-19 in our community so that we can return to in-person learning as soon as possible.

Starting Friday, January 15, 2021, the Pasadena Unified School District’s small group in-person learning programs will be temporarily suspended through the end of January. The last day for in-person programs is January 14, 2021. This affects the following programs:

• LEARNs K-8 programs
• Blair Viking Scholars at Blair School
• Phoenix Flyers program at Rose City High School

The Special Education Assessment Center will remain open. Grab & Go Food Centers will also continue to operate.

We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to resuming in-person programming as soon as possible. We will notify you of the reopening date for these programs once more information is available.

Dr. Brian McDonald
PUSD Superintendent
