PSS SPORTS PROGRAMS SUSPENDED

 

The PSS coaches and trustees have reluctantly concluded that there is not a way for us to run our soccer or basketball seasons safely. We're therefore suspending our sports programs until the spring when we hope we’ll be past this.

 

We'll keep you posted as things develop and get refund checks out to everyone who is signed up for soccer, and to anyone who requested a credit instead of a refund for baseball, as soon as we can.

 

Please stay well, everyone.
