COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements and Policies

At PUC Schools, the health & safety of our students and staff members is our highest priority. We are currently not requiring COVID-19 vaccinations for students or staff. However, we are highly encouraging vaccinations for all individuals and have provided vaccination clinics at PUC school sites. PUC Schools will be requiring vaccines of students and staff members when it is mandated by law to do so.

At PUC Schools, we take additional safety measures at each of our campuses. We require the use of masks both indoors and outdoors for all students, staff members, and visitors. Additionally, there is weekly testing of students and staff members that occurs at every school site. Daily screenings are also required for anyone to enter campus.
