Survey-Safe Routes to School

Paradise High School wants to learn more about children walking and biking to school and would appreciate you taking a 5-10 minute survey to help understand the needs of the community.
Please complete one survey per school (example: if you have one child in intermediate and one in high school, fill out one survey for the intermediate and one survey for the high school). If more than one child attends the same school, please fill out the survey for the child with the next birthday from today's date.

Your responses will be kept confidential and neither your name or your child's name will be associated with any results. Thank you for participating in this survey!

SBAC Testing Resources

 Did you know that PUSD accepts applications for free or reduced student priced meals all year long?

If your child qualifies for free or reduced priced meals you can also qualify for reduced PG&E rates, reduced internet rates,SAT fee waivers, and even discounts on computers! And all this in addition to the great breakfast and lunch our Food Services department offers every day.

And to top it all off, your qualifying meal application increases educational services funding to your child’s school to help fund important programs benefiting all students. It's a win-win!

The deadline is quickly approaching for our district to qualify for this additional educational funding. Applications must be completed by December 11th although applications are accepted all year for our meal programs.

You can find the applications:

Please call Nancy at 530-872-6496 if you have questions or need assistance in completing the application, thank you very much for taking the time to help us feed and educate your children.


Checking Out of School

When checking your student out of school, please assure the following requirements:
  1. an authorized person must be physically present OR
  2. a handwritten and signed note by an authorized person must be given to the attendance office (no email, no phone calls)
  3. checkouts must occur BEFORE student leaves, NOT after the fact

Short Term Independent Study

While students are highly discouraged from missing school for reasons other than illness, family emergencies or special events sometimes necessitate travel out of the area. In order to avoid penalties for missing class for these reasons, students must contract to do work during the period of the absence. Pre-Informed Independent Study Contracts must meet strict California State guidelines in order to result in excused absences.
