2021-2022 Reopening Highlights:

  • All schools remain open for in-person instruction five days a week at full capacity as allowed by the California Department of Health (CDPH). We have added safety measures to protect the health of students and staff.

  • A Virtual Academy option is available for families who wish to opt out of in-person learning and remain in 100% distance learning.

  • A Roadmap to Reopening Guidebook is available (above) to help families and SBCUSD staff to prepare for returning to in-person learning. The revised version, Roadmap 2.0, includes details about how COVID concerns are handled in schools.

  • Each school has a COVID liaison who can provide guidance for families when students are exposed to COVID-19 and provide free testing for students who are at school.

  • A COVID-19 dashboard provides details about the active and total cumulative positive cases at each school site and Districtwide. You can access the dashboard here.

  • Vaccinations are not currently required for students. You can find answers to frequently asked questions about student vaccinations here. Employees must verify vaccination or test weekly.

SBCUSD continues to monitor and adjust our reopening safety plans in accordance with guidance from the California Department of Public Health. As new information is shared and adopted at the state level, SBCUSD will adjust and refine plans.

A Note from the Superintendent

We are excited to have everyone back in school for in-person instruction — the most effective way for young people to learn and grow. We know our students are looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones, and seeing their favorite teachers and returning to the classroom for a true hands-on learning experience. And we are enthused about getting back to the sports, arts, and other activities that help make attending school such a worthwhile experience.

As we prepare for a return to traditional learning in classrooms, we want students and parents alike to be absolutely confident that their health and safety is our top priority. Every school in the District has gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure a safe, healthy environment for everyone on campus.

And for families who will have their children experience learning through our new Virtual Academy, we have great options and resources to help them succeed.

You also can rest assured knowing that SBCUSD will continue to diligently monitor local conditions and work closely with state and county health officials to respond quickly if circumstances change. In addition, we will share updates on a regular basis to ensure every parent is equipped with the most current information.

I want to personally thank you for your ongoing support and your continued efforts to help us all stay healthy and get back to a normal life. I look forward to SBCUSD students thriving on campus this school year!
