With the safety and well-being of our students, employees, and their families as our highest priority, PUSD officials have decided to close schools on Monday, August 21, 2023.
By News Desk
PUSD is advised to continue preparing for the impacts of the storm and expect roadway flooding, wind damage, and power outages.
The National Weather Service has issued a tropical storm warning for Hurricane Hilary until Monday night that will affect Los Angeles County and areas of Southern California with high winds. A flash flood warning has been issued for Southern L.A. County with a potential several inches of water and higher in certain areas.
Interim superintendent Elizabeth Blanco stated the following:
We want everyone to stay safe and avoid any unnecessary travel or exposure to dangerous road conditions. This includes athletic events and any third-party activities on PUSD campuses.”
The Superintendent’s Leadership Team, school administrators, and maintenance and operations workers, including head custodians, are required to report to their sites at 10:00 am on Monday. If it is unsafe for employees to travel, they are to talk with their supervisors. Other employees are to stay at home unless they hear from their supervisors.
Grab and Go meals
Recognizing that many of the students rely on school meals, PUSD will offer Grab and Go meals for students at a limited number of locations (click for locations).
Schools are expected to resume normal operations on Tuesday, August 22.
