A Message from PVPUSD Superintendent:
School Closure Extended
Dear PVPUSD Families, 
As you may be aware, yesterday President Trump extended the social distancing guidelines through April 30, 2020. Based on this new guidance and based on the  Los Angeles County Office of Education’s recommendation  for districts to remain closed through May 5, 2020, PVPUSD will extend its school site closure through April 30, 2020. Moving forward, the District will continue to reevaluate this situation and any new developments that may impact efforts to reopen our schools.
Thank you for your support during this difficult time. We understand the hardships that this unprecedented crisis has created for all of you. It has been truly inspiring to see us come together as a community and to support our students. The countless teachers who have gone above and beyond to engage with our students has been truly remarkable. We are thankful to all of our educators and support staff who have been putting kids first and we are thankful to all of our families for doing the best they can to educate their children during this difficult time. Together we will get through this.  
Alex Cherniss, Ed.D.  
Superintendent of Schools

What should I do if I have symptoms and think I may have been exposed to novel coronavirus?  

Most people with respiratory infections like colds, the flu, and coronavirus disease (COVID-19) will have mild illness and can get better with appropriate home care and without the need to see a provider. People who are elderly, pregnant, or have a weak immune system, or other medical problems, are at higher risk of more serious illness or complications. The County recommends that you monitor your symptoms closely and seek medical care early if your symptoms worsen. 

If you are having difficulty breathing or keeping fluids down, go to an emergency room or call 911. Otherwise, it is better to call your doctor before going in to seek care. Have non-emergency questions, dial 2-1-1 to speak with the Los Angeles County information center.

You should also call a doctor if you have had close contact with a person who has COVID-19.
