Health Reminders!

Hi Donlon community, 
We are in the season of sniffling! Please remind your children (and selves) of the importance of frequent hand washing, not touching your face, not sharing food/beverages, and covering coughs or sneezes with a sleeve or tissue. Everyone should be fever-free for 24 hours before attending school or work. Our school is experiencing an increase in illnesses and want everyone to stay healthy!

Take care,

Janet Gates
Principal, Donlon Elementary

Volunteer Clearance Form

Pleasanton Unified has been working with the Pleasanton Police Department to clear up the challenges we have been having with volunteer clearances.  To assist with clearing our volunteers at all school sites and to make sure we are following the PPD's guidelines, the PUSD has created a new Google Form for individuals to complete.

The Volunteer Clearance Form should be used by all potential volunteers effective Monday, October 15, 2018.  If you have completed a clearance request and have yet to be cleared, please complete the new form linked above (it is also available via the Donlon school website). We recognize the potential frustration during this process and appreciate your patience.  This standardized clearance form will allow us to have a more effective system of communication moving forward.

Thank you again for your patience in ensuring the safety of our students.
