Weekly Update #2 | Providing Input
Posted 6/10/20

 

In this second Reopening Together Weekly Update we want to share information with you about the variety of ways that you will be able to provide input on the reopening of schools for the 2020-21 school year. At last night’s Board of Education meeting, the Board received a presentation that showed the communication plan for this summer and the outline of the District’s priorities as we plan for reopening. Please see the presentation to review the complete plan. We want to emphasize that the input of our stakeholders, including staff, parents and students is essential to this process. The Reopening Presentation and all forms and documents referenced in this memo are available on our Reopening Together Webpages.

 

As you think about your contributions, there are relevant constraints from the California Department of Education, as well as from County Departments of Public Health and County Offices of Education that all school districts in the State of California must consider. The SRVUSD is working under the current recommendations from these agencies. We understand these recommendations will change as conditions evolve. At this time, we must maintain proper social distancing for the safety of staff and students. This means that students will be six feet apart with a maximum of 12 in one place. Our classrooms are not big enough to accommodate a full class of students full time and still abide by these parameters.  We continue to monitor communications from these agencies and are prepared to adjust plans accordingly.
