Information for Families

Taking care of yourself and your family is taking care of your community.

If you do not have symptoms of COVID-19 and can come to school:

  1. Practice physical distancing when able.
  2. Wash your hands regularly with soap and warm water.
  3. Respect others' decision to wear or not to wear a mask.

Our teachers and staff will be reinforcing these routines and practices. 

Pullman Public Schools will continue to work with state and regional health experts to address and plan for the most recent trends regarding the pandemic.
