Dear PUSD Community,

Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases, the Pasadena and Los Angeles 
County Public Health Departments have recommended 
that schools suspend in-person learning pro-grams until the 
end of January. By deferring in-person programming for just a 
few weeks, we can have a significant impact on reducing the rate 
of transmission of COVID-19 in our community so that we can 
return to in-person learning as soon as possible. 

Starting Friday, January 15, 2021, the Pasadena Unified School District’s small group in-person 
learning programs will be temporarily suspended through the end of January. The last 
day for in-person programs is January 14, 2021. This affects the following programs:

• LEARNs K-8 programs

• Blair Viking Scholars at Blair School

• Phoenix Flyers program at Rose City High School

The Special Education Assessment Center will remain open. Grab & Go Food Cen-ters will
also continue to operate.

We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to resuming in-person program-ming
as soon as possible. We will notify you of the reopening date for these programs once more
information is available.
