PAISD Superintendent of Schools Dr. Mark Porterie said the decision has been made that all PAISD employees will return in-person on Monday. All students (in-person and virtual) will continue with remote instruction through Monday.

This will allow staff to properly assess and prepare classrooms and departments for the students’ return.

Students who are currently in-person for the third nine-week period will return to campus on Tuesday, and all virtual learning students for the third nine-week period will continue with remote instruction.
