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.
