PUSD Update to Families - 3/24/2020
March 24, 2020
I hope everyone is doing well this evening. At the onset, I want to encourage everyone to make sure that you’re finding time to make connections with friends, family, and colleagues … especially around topics that aren’t COVID-19 related. Try a virtual board game, play zoom pictionary, join each other virtually for dinner, or whatever it is you do to really connect, laugh, and play. It’s vital that we do what we can to build and nurture all of our relationships during this challenging time.
I don’t have much to report this evening with regard to big announcements. I just want to keep encouraging all of you, and express how much I miss our school sites, seeing our educators everyday, and hearing the voices of children outside of my office.
Thank you again and please don’t hesitate to reach-out if you have any needs.
Randall Booker, Superintendent
