NEW! PTA President’s Message
Addison Community:

This week there are two important events that will provide us all with the most up-to-date information regarding the plans for school re-opening. I encourage all who are able to attend one or both events to do so.

  • Monday, September 21 @ 5:30 PM: “Backstage with the Superintendent” - The link to view the event can be found HERE. There is no registration necessary. The district leadership team will discuss the rationale behind staggered starts at the elementary school level.
  • Tuesday, September 22 @ 6:30 PM: The School Board will consider a re-opening plan. The agenda for this meeting and supporting documents (including meeting information) is available HERE.

Wishing you all health,
Lauren Williams
PTA President

PTAC Council supports Yes On O! Join us with your Vote YES on O. Palo Alto schools are among the best in the state and nation, thanks to dedicated teachers, high-quality academics, and rich and varied programs that support children’s growth. For almost 20 years, local voter approved parcel taxes have generated over $15 million in locally-controlled funding to keep our schools strong. This measure needs 66.7 percent of voters to approve to pass, and every vote counts. PAUSD Measure O - Yes on O!
