PUSD to Open 2020-2021 with Distance Learning



A Message from Superintendent Brian McDonald about the 2020-2021 School Year

On July 16, 2020, the Board of Education authorized the start of the new school year, which begins August 17, in a distance learning environment.

At a press conference on July 17, Governor Garrett Newsom laid out new statewide mandates for schools that affirm the decisions and direction that PUSD is taking to keep our students and staff healthy and safe. PUSD will adhere to state and county mandates.

The state mandate addresses safe in-person school based on local health data, requirements of masks/face covering, physical distancing, testing, rigorous distance learning, and the criteria for schools to close when then a member of our school community tests positive for COVID-19.
