    Community Support

    We are working together to meet the educational needs of our students as we move to virtual classrooms during the shelter in place order.

    Teachers are emailing, texting, and/or calling WASCAE students with information on how to access online classes.

    Please feel free to email your teacher if you need futher help or information about your classes.

    With the safety and health of our students, families, staff and community at the forefront PVUSD has extended the closure of all schools through the rest of the school year. Please note there is the possibility that the school closure date could be extended further as we continue to follow guidance from county, state and federal authorities and work together to slow the spread of COVID-19
