THANK YOU FOR HELPING TO ~**FLATTEN THE CURVE**~. REMINDER TO SHELTER-IN-PLACE: KEEP IT UP!

Dear PAUSD Parent,

The Palo Alto Council of Parent Teacher Association (PTAC) would like to thank everyone for doing their part on social distancing and staying at home as much as possible. Together, we have helped to flatten the COVID-19 epidemic curve. Local COVID-19 hospitalizations and COVID-19 deaths are lower than projected. Thank you! Now is the time to keep it up and stay the course. Shelter-In-Place is in effect until May 3, 2020. 

Additionally, many people have responded to our Governor’s call for medical personnel. Hotels and airlines are also working to help to house/move medical personnel to the most needed locations of our state. Every single life saved is huge. Thank you!

Please help educate yourself and others. Below are helpful tips (FAQs) and information about the most vulnerable among us. Share the information and be well.

HOW YOU CAN HELP. DONATE MONEY. JOIN THE NEW CALIFORNIA HEALTH CORPS

Dear PAUSD Parent,

The Palo Alto Council of Parent Teacher Association (PTAC) highlights two ways you can help.

First, you can donate money to financially support your school PTAs now working with school principals to provide financial assistance. You may also donate to a charitable organization that has already been serving your son’s or daughter’s school community. Or, you may choose to donate to COVID-19 Relief Funds launched in our local community (see above banner). Give generously if you can.

Second, you or someone you know can now join the new California Health Corps. This is the new fast track to bring more health care workers to care for the anticipated surge of COVID-19 patients. It is a 5-step process. We need all the health care workers in these categories who help increase our CA health care system’s capacity. Help spread the word.
