Dates Announced for Elementary Transition to Hybrid In-Person Instruction

Dr. de la Cruz  

Message from the Superintendent

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate through this incredibly dynamic and complex time. Today I am announcing our confirmed date for transitioning Hybrid in-person elementary students. Considering inputs from our school personnel, advice from our public health authorities, knowledge of our vaccination schedules, and directives from our School Board, we have arrived at a start date of Tuesday, Feb. 23. This date will be kept firm so that all in our learning community may prepare and move forward together.


We are confident this date will provide a stable, warm and welcoming transition to Hybrid in-person. Following is the timeline for all grades:

  • Kindergarten & Grade 1: Tuesday, Feb. 23

  • Grade 2 & Grade 3: Monday, March 1

  • Grade 4 & Grade 5: Friday, March 5

  • Grades 6-12: tentative plans for start of 4th quarter, week of April 12


Principals will be providing information about reopening details and preparing students for in-person school. This will include information about class assignments based on teacher and student change requests, and sharing a video with families on “a day in the life” to communicate what our elementary students may expect when returning to our buildings. There will be no school supply lists as the district will be providing all necessary tools for learning.


For additional information, please read the updated Frequently Asked Questions on our Roadmap to Reopening.


We look forward to turning our efforts to providing a warm and welcoming environment for all of our students.
