PUSD Updates on Return to In-Person Learning
January 25, 2021
Dear Piedmont Families,
Many parents, including me, are frustrated with the continuing uncertainty about when our children will be able to return to school. As you are probably aware, the Governor’s Safe Schools for All Plan adds new requirements that must be in place in order for students to come back. I am hopeful that we will have many more students back in classrooms in the near future. District leaders are working to ensure that we transition smoothly into the next phase once Alameda County COVID infection rates drop and we are permitted to expand in-person learning.
We will be ready for a safe and phased-in reopening of our elementary program as early as February 9th, pending approval by the County Health Department. We are also making preparations to reopen middle school and high schools as soon as we are allowed to do so. More information about the governor’s plan and our preparations is included in the following detailed letter linked here:
We are mindful of everything members of our community are dealing with and we offer our deepest compassion to each and every person directly and indirectly affected by the pandemic.
