Club Guidelines During Virtual Learning:
***Please note that all clubs must still follow the guidelines set forth in the PUSD Club Handbook. All clubs must go through the traditional approval process, including completing a club application or club renewal form (see details below). Clubs must continue to keep records of their meetings by taking meeting minutes with attendance.

Meetings and Club Events: As always, a club advisor must be present at all official club meetings and events. This includes all virtual meetings and events. While participating in club meetings or activities all school rules apply. It is recommended that the club advisor be responsible for setting up the zoom meeting link and sending it out to club members only. 

Fundraising: Clubs still must complete and submit a fundraising request form and gain approval before a fundraiser can occur.
