Weekly News and Events












School Picture Day

Some of you may have received an email recently from LifeTouch regarding Pioneer Elementary School holding a picture day on March 1st. That information is not correct. We are currently scheduled to provide opportunities for our students to take pictures on April 4th and 5th. I will provide additional information as we are closer to that date.

DJUSD Return to Campus Update

DJUSD continues with its Return to Campus plans. Find news, update, and resources as they become available on our Return to Campus website at www.djusd.net/COVID-19. Here you will find information on reopening conditions, approved Hybrid Learning schedules, videos and details about Healthy Behavior and Healthy Campuses, the latest presentations to the Board of Education, Superintendent messages, and more. The website will be updated as conditions evolve and milestones are met.

PIO Lawn Signs

Prairie Dogs, if you did not get a chance to pick up your Pioneer Elementary School Lawn Sign last week, they are available at the front office Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8 am-12 pm. Thanks again to our fabulous PTA for providing lawn signs for all of our students!

Free COVID Testing for DJUSD Staff and Students

DJUSD is working with Healthy Davis Together to provide saliva COVID tests for asymptomatic DJUSD staff and DJUSD students. If you would like your child tested at one of our school sites, there are two items to complete. Parents do not need to be present for testing once a waiver is on file for the student.

Step 1: Go to https://healthydavistogether.org/testing/

Step 2: Click “sign up for an account”

Step 3: Enter Agency Code: DJUSD

Step 4: Complete online registration with:

              *First name

              *Last name

              *Date of birth

              *Email address

              *Cell phone number

              *Zip Code

              *Gender

              *Ethnicity

              *Race

              *Read and acknowledge consent section

Step 5: You will need to add your student as your dependent to complete the process.

Do not fill out the email address and phone number information on the (student) dependent information UNLESS you want the results to go to your child, and then you would need to use THEIR EMAIL and THEIR PHONE. If you leave it BLANK, the results will come to you and YOUR PROFILE as the parent/guardian, and you will not receive an error message when trying to add your student as a dependent.

Step 6: Go to “MEDICAL CLEARANCE” after you have added your dependent, then

 electronically sign the Healthy Davis Waiver (minor consent form)

*Please be advised that all participants with web accounts will be prompted to update their local address before they can proceed with scheduling an appointment.

Onsite Testing: Tuesdays, 9-12 pm at Pioneer Elementary School in room A-5.
