PUSD Cares

To take a more proactive approach to safety and other concerns we have created several new ways for the community to report these incidents. The new PUSD Incident form can be filled out at PUSD Cares Incident Report Form (English) o rPUSD Cares Incident Report Form (Spanish). There is also a service that accepts calls and texts at 559-715-CARE or (559-715-2273).

Any issues that require immediate or emergency assistance should be reported directly to the appropriate authorities such as 911. What can you report?
