Pandemic lockdown – One year later

I can’t help but reflect on where we were one year ago:  March 13, 2020 — a date we’ll not soon forget. Our entire faculty and staff gathered to begin planning as the World Health Organization had declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic just days prior. Little did we know we’d find ourselves immediately sheltering in place. While some of us believed it would only last a few weeks until we flattened the curve, the reality as we now know, proved much different. 

What we did

Return to 4-Day-A-Week In-Person Instruction Survey

Dear Parents,

While we await clearance from Sacramento County Department of Public Health (SCDPH) to fully reopen the campus, we will be working to bring back as many students as we can under the restrictions we are still facing. We will make every effort to return as many students to campus as physically possible; however, we are still required to keep to the 6 ft.  distancing, which greatly impacts the amount of students who can physically return to campus.
