Important Reminders


The PPS School Improvement Bond work was completed in a number of areas throughout the main building, annex and portables this summer. This included seismic strengthening and improved accessibility to bathrooms and the entrance to our portables. In addition, we are excited to announce that two science labs have been built. The Installation of an elevator is still under construction. This will continue for several more months and we are working closely with contractors and district staff to develop plans, so that there will be minimal impact on instruction and access to the building. Ongoing updates will be posted here and noted in our school newsletter.



We are always in need of school volunteers. To become a volunteer you must fill out a background check application. All Background check applications are done online. Please follow the link below to the application.
