Schedule Changes for Semester 2
The second semester schedule change request deadline was January 15, 2021. Since the schedule change deadline has now passed, all changes are going through administrators on a case-by-case basis. The only exception is students who do not need a class to graduate may request to drop through their counselor by March 17, 2021, reducing their schedule for a shortened day.

PUSD is pleased to offer FREE remote tutoring for students. The tutoring will be conducted by certificated substitute teachers. The PUSD Remote Tutoring program offers 30-minute Zoom video conferencing sessions. The tutors provide one-on-one assistance to students during a designated appointment time.
To book an appointment, students must use their PUSD email account. Students will not be able to make an appointment if they do not use their PUSD email.
Tutors are able to assist students with completing assignments, studying for a test, completing projects of any size, completing missed work, understanding concepts, etc.
When a student books a tutor through the website, the tutor will contact that student to set up a meeting through Zoom. If a student fails to attend multiple sessions, they may not be allowed to use the PUSD Remote Tutoring service.
