We’re excited to welcome students back to campuses! PUSD schools 
are following a hybrid simultaneous model, with student cohorts 
on campus for in-person learning and student cohorts remaining 
in distance learning. 

• Monday, April 12, 2021 - All students in distance learning 
• Tuesday, April 13, 2021 - Preschool through 2nd grade student cohorts begin returning 
to campus, depending on their cohort’s schedule. Please check with your school 
for your student’s schedule. 
• Tuesday, April 20, 2021 - Grades 3-5 and 6-12 student cohorts begin return-ing to 
campus, depending on their cohort’s schedule. Grades 3-5: please check with your school 
for your student’s schedule. 
Grades 6-12: Schools will release student cohort schedules based on results of the 
6-12th Grade Return to School Survey 

Parents/guardians of 6-12th grade students are required to complete the Spring 2021 Return 
to Campus Survey Form to state your preference for your stu-dent’s learning for the 
remainder of the 2020-21 school year. The survey closed on April 7, 2021. 

Once results of the survey are in, middle and high schools will set up schedules for student 
cohorts and inform parents/guardians about their student’s assigned schedule.
