The PVSD School Board approved our Safe Reopening and Recovery Plan for fall 2020 at the special board meeting held on July 30, 2020. The safety of our students and staff is our highest priority. Over 100 stakeholders representing parents, teachers, staff, and leadership worked together in partnership to prepare this comprehensive plan in line with local, county, state, and federal guidance.
