Dear Pasadena Unified staff, families, and community,

In an abundance of caution and in response to widening concerns about COVID-19, all 
Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) students will be dismissed from attending school 
on Monday, March 16, 2020; staff will report on Monday, March 16, but no students will be 
present. This includes all schools and pro-grams in Pasadena Unified including children’s 
centers, preschools, grades TK-12, and our adult school. Staff will receive additional instructions

Schools remain closed with no students on any campuses from Tuesday, March 17 through 
April 5, 2020. Schools will reopen for students on April 6, 2020 barring any further developments. 
Schools will undergo a deep cleaning during the closure period. Staff will continue 
to report to their assigned work location until notified otherwise by the District.

Instruction will continue during the closure period of March 17 - April 5, and accommodations 
are being made for students with disabilities. We are preparing instruction in three 

1. Standards-based general content packets via Powerschool that will be live on Monday. 
We will send further details this weekend;

2. Digital push-out with additional content using Powerschool Online Classrooms, and

3. Distance learning with two-way flow of work between students and teachers is in 
development in case it is needed.

We will be providing additional information about services for students with disabilities.

School meals will continue to be provided for students starting Tuesday, March 17. Information 
and loca-tions is posted here. 

We are taking this proactive step to protect our students, staff, families, and communities.

MONROVIA – Following the recommendation from the Los Angeles County Office 
of Education (LACOE), Monrovia Unified School District will be initiating an 
extended dismissal of students from March 16-30, leading into spring break, to limit 
the spread of COVID-19, the respiratory illness caused by the novel coronavirus.

Monrovia Unified Board of Education convened in an emergency board meeting to 
take action on March 13.

“The health and safety of our students is our top priority,” Board President Rob 
Hammond said. “As a District, we are following the recommendation given to us by 
LACOE to ensure the well-being of our students, staff, and community. It’s a hard 
decision, but we also know this is the right thing to do.”

Monrovia Unified’s Village Extended School Program will be following the same calendar, 
and all California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) athletic competitions will 
be suspended during this time.

The District will provide guidance regarding supplementary resources, both digital 
and non-digital, and services that may be accessed from home. More information 
regarding meal services, individualized education plans, and curricular access will be 
available on Wednesday, March 18.

“Our commitment remains steadfast to our community and we would like to take 
this opportunity to thank our community for their continued support as we traverse 
these times of uncertainty together,” Superintendent Dr. Katherine Thorossian said.
