Dear PUSD Community,

I want to express my gratitude for your support of our students and schools this past year. While students and staff are back on campus, we continue to work through the impact remote learning and overall pandemic has had on our long established practices and traditions. Despite the challenges we have faced, our students are fortunate to attend great schools, embraced by amazing teachers, and are cared for by a phenomenal support staff.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the Cabinet, I want to extend my gratitude to the ways in which each member of our PUSD community supports one another and wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Like many of you, I plan to travel next week to spend time with my family. Please travel safely, take time to disconnect and relax, and stay healthy. 
As you experience the blessing of reconnecting with family, please join me in remembering that not everyone experiences the holidays in the same way. This is particularly true this year given the impact of COVID and social distancing. Take time to check in on each other - share a smile or a hug, and lend a word of encouragement where needed. Your effort to connect with someone who feels disconnected may make a much bigger difference than you imagine.
With gratitude,


David Haglund
