SMMS Re-Opening Updates
As health conditions continue to trend in the right direction, PUSD is making plans to have students in grades TK-2 return to campus on March 30, followed by students in grades 3-5 on April 12.   We anticipate that students in grades 6-8 may be able to return before the end of the school year, and we are continuing to prepare in the event that the opportunity becomes available.  For updates regarding SMMS’ Re-Opening please visit our SMMS Parents page, including a recording of last Friday morning’s Coffee with the Principal and the materials presented.
