welcome back to school, 2021-2022!

 We are excited to welcome our students for full in-person instruction for all students in August. We believe it is important for students to be learning in classrooms with their teachers and spending time on campus, seeing old friends and making new ones. We're looking forward to a wonderful year!

Safe Return for all - district and school procedures

Implementing a safe return to in-person instruction for all is our priority. We are encouraged about increases in San Mateo County vaccination rates and yet we remain cautious about COVID-19. Vaccination remains the leading prevention strategy to address the spread of the COVI-19 pandemic. 

School procedures will look different than pre-pandemic, and they will be based upon the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and CA Department of Education (CDE) guidelines. We will soon post our "Safe Return to School 2021-2022" document on this page for your review.
