Dear PUSD community,
I’d like to begin by wishing a blessed Ramadan to all of our families and staff who observe the holy month. As we work to celebrate the diversity of our community, I’d encourage everyone to learn a little bit more about Ramadan to ensure we are supporting inclusive and welcoming environments for members of all faiths.
Earlier this week, a communication was sent to staff regarding our need to be sensitive to students who fast during the day while attending school. As we continue to reflect and to learn, it is vital to maintain our commitment to ongoing dialogue with our students, staff and families.
I want to invite all families, staff and students in grades 6-12 to participate in our 5th annual school quality survey. We’ve been intentional in building out this survey each year, and have added questions to the social emotional learning section so we can better understand how our students and staff are doing — and how we can best provide support.
Parents/guardians, staff and students can check their emails for links to the survey. Community members can find a link to participate on our District website.
David Haglund, Ed.D.
