Alameda County Public Health Department: COVID-19 infections remain common in the Bay Area and across California. The Alameda County Public Health Department (ACPHD) recommends against non-essential travel. Traveling outside of the Bay Area increases your chance of infecting loved ones or getting infected and spreading the virus to others when you return. Read more

Pleasanton Library Reopening March 16
3 Must-Know Library Updates for Every Student and Parent
The Pleasanton Library will reopen with limited hours and occupancy on March 16 for “Grab & Go” services to provide a safe environment for all users during the COVID-19 pandemic. Library users will be welcomed back for visits up to one hour to browse and check out materials; pick up items on hold; access computers; utilize printing services; and manage their library account. Library hours of operation are as follows: Tue-Thu: 12 – 6PM; Fri-Sat: 10AM – 5PM; and Sun-Mon: Closed.
Here are 3 must-know tips, and changes to be aware of, to ensure students and their families have a safe and enjoyable Library visit:
  1. We are asking library users to limit their visits to one hour.
  2. Visitors must complete a health screening, wear a face covering, refrain from consuming food or drink, and maintain a 6-foot social distance from others while inside and outside Library facilities.
  3. Chairs, tables, and study rooms will not be available for reading and studying, and the Library’s regular afterschool programs will not be offered at this time.

PUSD students and families can still use the Library’s popular no-contact Sidewalk Service and Sidewalk Print Pickup, as well as access a variety of eBooks, streaming services & research tools online. The Pleasanton Library is excited to welcome back PUSD families and looks forward to seeing you soon!

Parenting Tips from your School Social Worker Team
Supporting Your Student By Emphasizing Progress
A new research study published by American Psychological Association suggests that students may feel more confident and perform better if they are told that failure is a normal part of learning, rather than being pressured to excel. Often, students are fearful of trying something new, because they are scared to fail. However, if they have room to struggle, they might be more exploratory in their learning. Parents or caregivers can support their students by emphasizing progress, rather than simply focusing on grades. To learn more, check out the online series Tools for Supporting Your Anxious Child developed by your School Social Workers. Brought to you by your PBIS School Social Workers.
