Greetings Pinon Unified Community!
Frequently asked question: When does school start?
The 1st day of school for students, and the reporting back date for staff, has not changed. We are still following the SY 20-21 calendar. Governor Ducey’s order does not allow students to return to campus until mid August. PUSD had already decided to do distance learning for the 1st quarter so we do not need to adjust the calendar. The first day for students is still Monday, July 27. There will be more updates in the next few days. Have a great day!

Greetings Pinon Unified Community!
The Governing Board unanimously accepted my recommendation to open the new school year with online-distance learning for the 1st quarter instead of our traditional instructional program with students on campus. It was also approved to cancel the fall athletic seasons. They were difficult recommendations to make but heath and safety considerations must come first. COVID-19 is still very much a health emergency in our community.

There is still much work to be done and many more decisions to be made. Please be on the lookout for additional information and updates in the upcoming weeks.

I hope you are all enjoying your summer break but please remember to wear a mask when in public, follow the curfew orders, practice social distancing and stay home as much as possible.

Thank you,
Superintendent Ostgaard
