Palo Alto PTAs on Parcel Tax: Measure O

THANK YOU to all PTA volunteers, parents, students, neighbors, and friends. You did it! You helped to pass this parcel tax **Measure O** by historical numbers in support for our schools, teachers, staff, bus drivers, and students. During an especially difficult year, Palo Alto came together for our public schools and all families. We are in your debt for your generosity and priority. Thank you!
