Fall 2020 school reopening Information

2020-2021 School Year Begins with Remote Learning Model

Peninsula School District students have begun the 2020-2021 school year with a remote learning model, called Remote Learning 2.0. Students are being brought back for in-person learning using a staged reentry approach.

This web page is dedicated to providing information, resources and communication updates. Thank you for partnering with us through this ever-changing and challenging time. We ask for your understanding as we continue through the school year with our staged reentry approach and dual platform model. We are committed to sharing information with staff and families as soon as it becomes available.
