Upcoming Work May Impact Student Drop-off and Pick-up Starting in September

PSE will be performing a natural gas system improvement project that, once completed, will increase service reliability for customers throughout the greater Gig Harbor area. A postcard will be sent to the community from PSE detailing when construction work is expected along the route, as construction progresses.

Traffic delays from ongoing construction may impact student drop-off and pick-up at Swift Water Elementary and Harbor Ridge Middle School starting in September.

We understand that many families need before or after school care for their child during the week, which is why PSD has worked to create many options for families in the 2022-2023 school year. 

On-site child care is available for our elementary families and is provided by three partner programs.
