COVID Reopening Letter #9 1/29

Dear Families:

 

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage on, we want to make sure we share as much information as possible and provide you the opportunity to voice your opinions. 

 

After Governor Newsom lifted the stay-at-home order on Monday, many parents wanted to know if that meant we would open our school for in-person learning. At this time, San Diego County remains in the purple tier, and the previous restrictions remain in effect. 

 

In addition, our board voted on January 12 to delay our planned February 1 reopening while we evaluate our onsite learning options and feasibility. Two days later, the California Department of Public Health released revised reopening guidance for K-12 schools. This new guidance bases reopening schools on the average COVID case rate being less than 25 cases per 100,000 residents. San Diego is currently around 50 cases per 100,000 residents.

 

Earlier this month we sent out a survey to families, faculty, and staff to get their opinions and get a sense of how many students and staff would be returning to campus for an in-person hybrid model. We are still waiting for many families to complete the survey. If you haven’t filled it out, please do so as soon as possible. This will enable us to plan based on the number of students planning to return for in-person learning. 

 

Our board will be discussing the reopening at our next meeting, Tuesday, February 9 at 6:30 p.m. We invite you to join us virtually at:
