Greetings PUSD Community, Due to the report of the Lightning Incident, PUSD has arranged through the Office Of Native Medicine for a Navajo Practitioner named Leroy Nelson to perform a ceremony at our school Hogan at 1:00pm today. This will allow our school district the opportunity to have this cleansing ceremony performed before students return back to school. We understand this is short notice for many, but we still want to extend an invitation for those that want to participate. PUSD is appreciative that we were able to get a hold of the Navajo Practitioner on short notice. We will be following CDC guidelines and not everyone will be able to be inside the Hogan at one time when the ceremony is being conducted. But we want ensure you that this ceremony is open to those interested and for those that may want to utilize the herbs that will be used. We appreciate your patience in this matter. Thank you and have a great day!
Greetings PUSD, There will be no school on Tuesday, August 16 due to the road damage caused by heavy rains this afternoon and more rain possible this evening and tomorrow. This will be mud day #3. There was also a report of a possible lightning strike on campus. We are investigating and will take the appropriate actions before school resumes. Thank you and have a good evening.

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!
The Pinon Unified School Board meeting for February 2 will be rescheduled to a later date due to internet and telephone issues on campus. Thank you for your understanding.
Pinon Unified Community, we still do not have internet access on campus and telephone lines are not consistently working this afternoon. Parent Teacher Conferences for today will be rescheduled if you were not able to make contact today. Sorry for any inconvenience!
PINON UNIFIED COMMUNITY, We are currently experiencing an internet and telephone outage on campus. We do not have an estimate on when services will be restored. Thank you for your understanding. We will keep you updated.
