Welcome to the Peninsula School District located in Gig Harbor, Washington. Peninsula School District is comprised of 15 schools and nearly 9,000 students. Geographically, it is located across Puget Sound from the Seattle/Tacoma area and covers a 120 square-mile area on two peninsulas. The Peninsula School District is considered one of the strongest and most innovative districts in the State of Washington.
Gig Harbor is nestled at the south end of Puget Sound. This quiet waterfront village is a community rich in maritime history, scenery, quaint shops, and unparalleled recreation. Gig Harbor is an easy 45-minute drive from Seattle/Tacoma International Airport and has convenient access to Tacoma, Seattle, Mt. Rainier National Park, Olympic National Park and many picturesque towns along the way.
Although the final school board results will not be certified until later this month, I would like to congratulate Lori Glover, Natalie Wimberley, and Chuck West for their election wins. They have been selected for a special position of trust, serving on the Peninsula School District Board of Directors. Together with continuing board members Deb Krishnadasan and David Olson, they will constitute a governing board with the stated purpose of providing vision, accountability, and advocacy for the children of this community.
As the fall and winter storm season is upon us, we have prepared this message to explain Peninsula School District’s procedures and expectations during inclement weather and school closures. Below you will find guidelines to make this process easier, plus explain how weather decisions are made.
Open November 4, 2019 – January 15, 2020

The Peninsula School District (PSD) uses PowerSchool, a secure web-based system for our Parent Portal and student information system. We recently upgraded the way we store contact information in PowerSchool in order to provide more accurate information and faster communication in case of an emergency.
As we complete the upgrade process, we need all parents and legal guardians to update their contact information for each student.
Students from households that meet federal income guidelines are eligible for free or reduced-price lunches. Complete the Free and Reduced Application returning it to your child’s school main office or to the Nutrition Services Office
