  • Weather-Related Make-Up Day

    Given the winter-weather school cancellation on Feb. 7, 2020, we wanted to share some important school calendar information. As part of the 19 - 20 PRSD Academic Calendar, the district built in additional make-up days to provide flexibility in the event of a cancellation. As a result: March 23, 2020 - will shift from a holiday to a teacher in-service/clerical day. March 24, 2020 - will become a regular school day for all students and staff.

  • Important Safety & Security Procedures & Initiatives

    The topic of safety and security is critical to the mission of PRSD. As a district, we take a comprehensive view of school safety with attention given to multiple areas (e.g., building security, personnel, law enforcement, mental health, technology, law, curriculum, reporting, communication, and general measures). Safety experts recommend that school organizations refrain from describing specific emergency plans in a public forum. Consistent with those recommendations, we will highlight procedures and protocols at a high level.
