Reimagining Excellence: Pathway to Recovery
As we celebrate returning to school, exciting work is happening in Puyallup Schools. Reimagining our ‘tradition of excellence’ is not just about academics, but also social and emotional wellness and recovery for students. Our Academic and Student Well-being Recovery Plan represents our best efforts to identify and respond to impacts on student learning caused by the pandemic. Our plan will:
Identify students in need of academic and well-being support Dene how supports will be provided through identiable resources, and Plan for recovery and acceleration of student learning
This year you’ll hear more about resources available and the ways we plan to support students. Join with us on our pathway to recovery as this work evolves.

Back-to-School Checklist From bell schedules to online payments, the back-to-school checklist provides information and links to direct webpages that will help prepare your child for the rst day of school. Seeking Advisory Committee Members: Aug. 13 Deadline This year, as we continue to listen and seek feedback from all stakeholders, you have an opportunity to provide guidance as we make meaningful changes in our organization. Apply today for consideration to be a member of our CARE team. Applications will be collected through midnight on Aug. 13. Bus Transportation Opt-Out Survey To help us align transportation resources, we are asking families who will not need bus service in the fall to participate in a Transportation Opt-Out survey by Aug. 6. The opt-out survey is voluntary and is designed for us to gather information on families who know they will not need bus service for their child in the upcoming school year.
Non-Discrimination Statement
Registration Reminder As a result of the pandemic, many families delayed registering their child for kindergarten resulting in a decline in student enrollment. If your child will be ve years old on or before August 31, or if you child is new to the district, parents are highly encouraged to enroll their child online as soon as possible. Consent to Share Information: Required for Grades 9-12 If your child qualies for free and reduced-priced meals, families are required to submit a Consent to Share survey to receive additional fee waivers. House Bill 1660 states that districts cannot automatically remove fees for students who are eligible via a meal application, without parental consent. Eligible items for fee waivers include ASB cards, athletic participation fees, device coverage, and more.
