The PS1 campus is currently closed to students and families
from March 16 to April 19.
PS1 is monitoring the evolving news and information on the spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19, in the Los Angeles area. Faculty will be communicating with you to share distance learning plans and activities.
Please use this page to stay informed.
As a reminder, even though we will not be together on campus, it remains imperative that parents, faculty, and staff contact PS1 immediately if you or someone in your household:
- Has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
- Has been tested for COVID-19 and is awaiting results.
- Has traveled (or is traveling) to a Level 2 or Level 3 country (per the CDC) in the last 14 days.

Your child's teachers will be maintaining contact with you and sending ongoing information about distance learning schedules, plans, and activities.
We will be using Zoom for students and teachers to be able to gather virtually as a class at set times.
Students do not need to have or create a Zoom account in order to join class meetings. Accounts are only needed in order to host meetings, and students are not being asked to host meetings. In order to join class meetings, students need only the meeting number assigned by their teacher or specialist.
You don't have to download Zoom -- all you have to do is go to https://www.psone.org/zoom and enter your class meeting number. Then follow any prompts.
Expect emails from your teachers with detailed instructions and links for joining Zoom meetings. Thank you!
