PTSA Meeting: Monday, March 15

Asynchronous Learning Days: Wednesday, March 17 – Friday, March 19
This Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday will be dedicated to asynchronous learning activities so that teachers districtwide may prepare their classrooms for the re-opening of schools.  Please check Canvas for your asynchronous assignments and tasks on these dates.  Live instruction will resume on Monday, March 22.

SMMS Re-Opening
With the return of PUSD elementary schools to in-person learning, the reality of middle schools returning as well continues to become more imminent.  We have been planning for this opportunity all year long, and regular updates and information will be provided on our SMMS Parents page under SMMS Re-Opening Updates 

Parent Survey
A critical factor in our preparations is knowing which of our students would like to return to in-person learning when it becomes available.  Please visit the corrected link to respond to the parent survey (or simply type into your browser) and let us know your choice.  The default for families that do not respond to the survey will be to stay in online learning for the remainder of the year.
