Greetings PUSD Community, The Temporary Distance Learning option is scheduled to end on Friday, February 11. Beginning on Monday, February 14 all PUSD students will need to return to in person instruction on campus or be enrolled in our Pinon Eagles Online Academy. This follows the same direction as the other Arizona public schools on the Navajo Nation which also plan to return to on- campus instruction on February 11. If you have any questions or would like to switch to the Online Academy please contact the school offices. We want to finish the 3rd quarter with high attendance rates and strong academic achievement. All mitigation measures are still in place on campus including a requirement that all students and staff wear face coverings. New air purification systems are in place in PES and PAMS classrooms. PHS had new ventilation systems installed earlier this year. Please do not send your child to campus if they have any signs of illness or symptoms of COVID-19. Temperature checks and screening are still required to enter the school buildings or school buses. We strongly recommend students and staff participate in our weekly pooled COVID-19 testing each week on Wednesday. It is also recommended that all students ages five and up are fully vaccinated as soon as possible. Thank you for your support and we look forward to having all our students back on campus!

Pinon Unified School District Response to Recent COVID-19 Increase in Cases Greetings Pinon Unified Community, Pinon Unified School District is aware of the rising COVID-19 case numbers in our communities, and how it may impact the operations of our school district. The health and safety of all our students is our top priority. We are following guidance from IHS and Navajo Nation. The Navajo Nation increased the COVID mitigation status level from "orange" to "red" earlier this week. The situation can change quickly, please continue to monitor the school district website and Facebook page for updated information. PUSD has had both an online and an on-campus program since the beginning of the school year. We will continue to offer both of those programs at this time. Beginning Thursday, January 13 we will also offer a third temporary remote learning option using the Governing Board adopted Instructional Time Model. Parents will have the option to enroll their students into this program using the link below. Students can participate online using district issued Chromebook laptops or through printed learning packets if there is no internet access at home. Attendance and completing of assignments, including assessments, will be required for all students during this time frame. The location may change but learning continues. Enrollment Form for Temporary Remote Learning: https://forms.gle/NDFsXPKRJsH3Zp8F9 We plan for all students (PreK-12) to report for in-person instruction on Monday, January 31, 2022 unless they are in the Pinon Eagles Online Academy. We will be evaluating the situation over the next two weeks and this date may change as necessary. Students receiving ESS services will be contacted by their ESS teacher regarding each student’s IEP in a remote setting. Attendance documentation will be required for all services provided. Athletics: Effective Thursday, January 13th through Monday, January 31st all PHS Freshman teams and PAMS Middle School Athletics will be rescheduled (if possible) or canceled. PHS Varsity and Junior Varsity practices and games will be held as scheduled but this may change based on the numbers of students and staff available. The numbers of fans and spectators will be limited based on Navajo Nation guidelines. The PUSD athletic department recently posted an update to our Facebook page. Events will continue to be livestreamed when possible. Parents: Please enroll your student in the pooled testing program if they are attending classes on campus. This is the best way to monitor the spread of COVID and catch any cases early. Discuss with your student the importance of wearing their mask at all times and school and on the bus, frequent hand washing and use of hand sanitizer, and keeping social distance during the day. Please continue to wear your mask in public places and practice social distancing.
