Dear UC Cluster Community,
Today San Diego Unified released a statement regarding the opening of schools. The announcement states that the new school year will start online only. Instruction will resume on Aug. 31 in San Diego Unified, as previously scheduled. SDUSD will continue planning for a return to in-person learning during the 2020-21 academic year, as soon as public health conditions allow. We ask that all students and parents review the statement released for more information.
San Diego Unified will provide a public assessment on Aug.10 of how soon (after the first week of school) a physical return to class would be possible. That assessment will be based on local measures of whether the virus is sufficiently under control, as well as progress on testing and federal action on funding. On Aug.10, San Diego Unified will also outline the physical measures planned for schools to guard against the pandemic and detail the online learning program for the 2020-21 academic year.
We are committed to providing you with additional information as soon as it becomes available. We are thankful for your support as we work together to ensure a safe reopening of schools for all.
