current district status, december, 2020

By decision of the Board of Trustees, all District schools began classes on Monday, August 17 in Distance Learning due to COVID-19 cases in San Mateo County.

On Tuesday, October 27, 2020, SMFCSD submitted the required Reopening Plan for In-Person Instruction to the San Mateo County Office of Education (SMCOE) and San Mateo County Health (SMCH). It is presently under review. (Please view the most updated version at COVID-19 Updates web page.)

Additionally, at their meeting on Thursday, October 22, the Board of Trustees approved a return to school for elementary-school students and Special Day Classes (SDC) by utilizing a staggered approach in a Hybrid Model starting on Tuesday, January 19, 2021. The youngest students and SDC students would return to campus first, with grades 2 and 3, and then grades 4 and 5, following at regular intervals thereafter.

Due to the size of our middle schools, middle school students will remain in Full-Time Distance Learning at this time. Staff are working on options to bring students to campus.
