Celebrating 2021 Retirees
Celebrating Retirees 2021
Posted on 06/07/2021
Puyallup School District honors 47 employees retiring at the end of the 2020-21 school year.  Combined, retiring staff members have approx. 1,026 years of service with the district. More than half of these individuals have served Puyallup students for 20 years or more.

Retirees were recognized at the June School Board meeting where statements of gratitude from supervisors were shared with School Board members. Link to the commemorative PSD Retiree Booklet to read about the difference these employees have made in the lives of students.
