Spring 2021 Return to School Survey
PUSD recently sent out a survey to families asking parents to choose between two options in the event that we are able to return to school.  We are hopeful that this can begin as early as January, but please know that our District will only return to in-person learning if and when health conditions permit.  Until that point, we will continue to prepare for a possible return, and your response to the survey is an important component of our planning.  For now, it is advisable to select in-person learning if there is any chance that you want a seat for the second semester.  Although the survey states binding, if a parent selects in-person and decides to stay home because conditions change, we will still be obligated to educate the students.  However, we will not be able to create space if you elect on-line and decide later that you want to attend in-person.

For information about all of these events and more, please be certain to visit our school website at smms.pusd.us, and like us on Facebook as well.

Have a wonderful evening, and we look forward to seeing you online tomorrow.
