Transition Back to School: Join two important PAUSD discussions this week

We generally try not to repeat information that Principal Crane and PAUSD send out, but we feel it is warranted this time. Last Friday, you should have received the proposed plan for the transition to an in-person hybrid school model.

This Monday, Superintendent Don Austin will be hosting a webinar to share more details. The link to view this event can be found here.

On Tuesday, the PAUSD Board of Education will hold a board meeting where they will discuss this plan and take community input and questions. This meeting will be conducted on Zoom and can be viewed on channel 28 of To participate, connect via Zoom using this link. The meeting agenda, connection instructions, and participation instructions can be found here.

We encourage you to attend these very important meetings that will allow you to make an informed decision about how your family will approach the remainder of the school year.

Everyone is invited: Principal’s Coffee Wednesday, September 23 at 9 am

Grab a cup of coffee and join Principal Crane and other parents virtually for an informal chat about Duveneck.
