Dear PYLUSD Expanded Learning Families, 

Out of an abundance of caution, the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD) Board of Education has taken action to temporarily close all schools, offices, expanded learning (childcare), preschool, and all before and after school programs. Schools and offices will be closed beginning Monday, March 16, 2020 through Friday, April 24, 2020. During this time, the District will monitor circumstances around coronavirus (COVID-19) and determine if additional days or weeks may be needed beyond the initial closure.

Once again, all PYLUSD schools and offices are scheduled to remain closed until April 24, 2020. This includes expanded learning (childcare), preschool, and all before and after school programs.

Many have asked about payments/refunds for the days programs are closed. Families that have paid their full amount for March already, will be credited the remaining days of March during the month of April.  Therefore, your April invoice will be reduced based on the number of days that schools are closed.  

If there are any financial circumstances that require a refund of paid program fees for the remaining days of March, please send us an email to the following email address:  Our staff will process refund requests as soon as possible. 

The Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District will continue to share new developments through its regular communications channels including emails, text messages, and/or phone calls, as well as social media.

Thank you for your efforts to keep our community safe.
