Community Announcements 

NEW! Happy New Year from the Palo Alto PTA Council
Congratulations we made it to 2021!  We thank our families, volunteers, staff and community partners for your continued support and resilience during an unfathomable year of challenges and difficult choices made on behalf of our children and youth. We take this opportunity to start fresh and wish every family a year filled with new beginnings, health and joy.


NEW! Free COVID-19 Testing in Palo Alto


NEW! Mandatory Directive on Travel & Quarantine

Travel is discouraged, especially for non-essential purposes. Travel for leisure or for non-essential business is strongly discouraged and should be postponed until after the current surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations subsides. Travel involves mixing between regions and households, and because so many areas are also currently experiencing significant surges in COVID-19 cases, travel is discouraged and should be minimized. All persons traveling into Santa Clara County, whether by air, car, train, or any other means, directly or indirectly from a point of origin greater than 150 miles from the County's borders must quarantine for 10 days upon arrival.
