“We ran a testing clinic over the break and yesterday was the busiest day so I think parents want to make sure that their children are safe and other children are safe as well,” said PUSD Chief Academic Officer Elizabeth Blanco.

Surgical-grade masks will also be required both indoors and outdoors on all campuses when people can’t maintain six feet of distance.
