Reunited and It Feels So Good

Students well-acquainted with and following COVID-19 precautions

Happy greetings, laughter, elbow bumps, and behind-the-mask smiles were the order of the day on Monday, May 3rd, as students, teachers and staff launched the 5-day in-person-learning schedule at schools this week. This is the schedule they will follow for the remainder of the school year. 

Monday was a momentous day,” said Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. “After 416 days since learning that we would be closing our school campuses, we finally are able to bring all students back to campus for a full week of in-person learning. It was not an easy undertaking, and I want to thank everyone for working with us to make it possible.”

But it was seeing the students lined up, excitedly waiting to enter the classroom and begin learning that touched parents and faculty alike.

Students were excited to physically see the students from the other cohort.  “This feels like it’s supposed to be,” said one elementary school teacher as she watched students line up to enter the classroom. “Thank you for being here for the kids,” said the parent of a kindergartner. “It’s good!” said a happy second grader as she dashed off for her turn on the slide.

Share a thought or Rate thoughts from others.
We are seeking input from families and staff.

California legislators have approved additional one-time funds to support student learning acceleration in response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on in-person instruction for this school year. 

We would like your thoughts about priorities for these funds via the online ThoughtExchange platform. An important part of the conversation is going back periodically to see and rate thoughts from others. It’s easy to do from your mobile device or desktop computer.

Now through May 7th, please return periodically to see any new ideas and give them a “star” rating indicating how much you agree with the idea.
