On Friday, Sept. 4, Dr. Jason W. Reynolds, the new superintendent of the Peoria Unified School District, sent an update to families of 37,000 students in Glendale and Peoria.
The updated plan is to have the youngest students return to classrooms Sept. 21, followed by all students returning to schools five days per week Sept. 28.
“We are pleased that the most recent benchmarks from Maricopa County show our district’s data continues to trend in the right direction. According to the most recent update, we are excited to share that we have a target to move directly into Stage 4 of our Return to School Plan,” Reynolds said.
He said PUSD is “targeting” Monday, Sept. 21, for kindergarten through second-graders (“our youngest, most vulnerable students”) to return to classrooms.
“If the positive trend in our data continues, we will invite the remainder of our students to return on Sept. 28,”
