Students are thoughtfully planning activities to coincide with national student events in support of the slain in Florida and other school shootings. Please read the following letter from Superintendent Sziraki regarding these student-planned events. (Letter from Dr. Sziraki)

School safety is an ongoing conversation as we fine-tune practices and procedures to keep students safe. Each school has a law enforcement partner on campus. Thanks to the Placer Sheriff and Auburn Police Department for this commitment. Take ten minutes to better understand the preparations each school goes through in the event of a safety emergency.

Placer Union is committed to equal access, and ensuring that our website is accessible to all is part of that effort. The district is making important webpage updates using a quality assurance tool---Site Improve---which helps identify critical issues in need of attention. If you experience difficulty accessing a page, link, or document, please contact Gregg Ramseth at gramseth @ Thank you.

The PUHSD Board of Trustees welcomes student representatives in an advisory capacity to its bi-monthy meetings. The "student voice" is critical to governance conversations as the district continues forward with many student-centered initiatives and outcomes.
