PALO VERDE TEMPORARY RELOCATION TO GREENDELL
We would like to thank parents who attended the webinar last night to discuss the temporary relocation of Palo Verde Elementary to the Greendell site next year. Over 40 participants attended and submitted questions for live responses. Forty-six questions were answered through the Q&A feature in writing and many more were handled through our live panel. For a look at the Palo Verde project, please visit HERE. The Palo Verde Elementary principal, Ms. Lee, will be in contact with families about plans as they develop. The City of Palo Alto is fully engaged and ready to assist.
PAUSD launched a new webpage dedicated to construction updates. The page will capture most of the larger projects taking place on our campuses. Please visit the site HERE.
It's been energizing to get back on sites to see and hear all of the things that make our schools special. Visits to Mandarin Immersion, playgrounds, Post-Secondary Futures, Learning Centers, and Spectra Art classes capped off this week. We are very lucky to have the depth and breadth of programs offered in Palo Alto.
COVID CLINIC TESTING & COMMUNITY SITE AT CUBBERLEY
We have now made the transition to COVID Clinic for our testing services. In less than a week, the bugs were worked out and we successfully administered hundreds of tests to staff, students, and community members. The Cubberley site has served roughly 100 community members each day since opening. For more information regarding the testing program, please visit our site HERE.
