NEW! PTA President's Message
Addison Community,

On Tuesday, two classrooms of first grade students at Addison will resume in-person learning 5 days a week. Thank you to all the staff & teachers who worked tirelessly to prepare for this inaugural pilot program - and to our first grade families for their trust in and commitment to the county, district and school site health & safety guidelines.

Friday evening PAUSD announced a resolution to the PG&E Eminent Domain Claim on the site of Cubberley. Thank you to everyone who signed the petition and voiced their concern on this important community issue.

Wishing you all health,

Lauren Williams
PTA President
