MOST RECENT, February 26, 2021 - Timeline for Reopening in Hybrid

Please review the most recent letter from Dr. Joan Rosas (English | Spanish

Please Note:

This message is for all elementary families and all families with students enrolled in Special Day Classes (SDC), including preschool, elementary and middle school SDC. In order to ensure that all families who have students in SDC receive this important message about reopening in Hybrid, it was sent via SchoolMessenger to all SMFCSD families. 

Hello Everyone,

I am very pleased to announce that the Board of Trustees approved the Elementary Hybrid In-Person Learning Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the San Mateo Elementary Teachers’ Association (SMETA) this afternoon. The MOU was ratified by SMETA membership and presented to the Board for approval at the Special Board Meeting today. This approved MOU represents many hours of collaboration and problem solving between the SMETA and District negotiations teams and paves the way for the reopening of our schools for in-person learning. This is an important milestone and I thank each member of the negotiating teams for their commitment and dedication to our students.

The District will open our elementary schools for in-person learning in the Hybrid Model in a staggered approach beginning on Monday, March 8. ALL students in Hybrid and Distance Learning in grades TK-5 and SDC classes including middle school begin in their new class assignments on Monday, March 8. Students will follow the timelines shown below based upon their class assignment.

These class assignments were sent to you by your child(ren)’s principal on Friday, December 18 and the assignment shows whether students are assigned to:

  • Hybrid A (at school on Monday and Tuesday) 
  • Hybrid B (at school on Thursday and Friday)
  • Full Time Distance Learning

It is important that families are aware of the assignments for their students. If you are unclear of your student’s assignment, please contact your school right away.
