In an effort to conserve energy and, in turn, save on operating costs, the Puyallup School District will temporarily close all but five of its schools this summer.

Emerald Ridge, Puyallup, Rogers, and Walker high schools, as well as Meeker Elementary, will remain open for summer programs and facility use. All other schools will shut down from July 2 to August 12.

The main offices at all four high schools will remain open during summer with regular summer operating hours. Junior high school offices reopen on Monday, August 13, and elementary school offices will reopen to the public starting on Thursday, August 23.

District support buildings, including the Education Service Center in downtown Puyallup, will remain open with regular summer operating hours.
