Return to School Information » Home


The COVID-19 pandemic continue to guide the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District's (PYLUSD) weekly, daily, and even hourly conversations and planning throughout the summer. District leaders and stakeholder groups are working tirelessly with state, county, and local partners to prepare for the 2020-2021 school year beginning on September 1, 2020. 

To spearhead these efforts, we have convened a “PYLUSD Return to School Steering Committee” made up of various stakeholders including parents, teachers, staff, association representatives, administrators, and more from around the district. Together, the group will review plans for a safe return to school in Fall 2020. This committee will take into consideration all guidelines set forth by state and local agencies including the California Department of Public Health and Orange County Department of Education.
