We are pleased to share that we have reached an agreement with the Sacramento City Teachers Association (SCTA) for the second step of our distance learning plan during the period of school closures.
The second step of our plan includes:
We want to thank you again for your patience as we work diligently to meet the needs of our students during this unprecedented public health crisis. We hope that you will take time to review the following message which contains updates on the following:
Today, the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE), with the full support of Sacramento County Public Health (SCPH), announced that the closure period for schools will be extended through May 1 as part of the effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
The health and safety of our students is our top priority. At this time, Sac City Unified Schools are scheduled to resume on May 4, 2020.
We want to thank you for your patience as we’ve been working diligently to respond to this unprecedented public health crisis. We realize how challenging this has been for our students and entire school community. We also want to thank the many dedicated educators and staff working to fill the gaps.
Sac City Unified continues to coordinate with the Sacramento County Office of Education, Sacramento County Public Health, the California Department of Education, and Governor Gavin Newsom should our closure be extended.
While we work to meet the nutrition and social-emotional needs of our children, equally vital is our ability to continue high-quality learning during the school closure period no matter how long the period of such closure is.
We know that families have many questions about how we plan to continue providing academic, social-emotional, and other essential support services to our students during the COVID-19 public health crisis. Please know that we have been working around the clock to develop a plan that meets the needs of all our students remotely during our school closure.
Sac City Unified’s goal is to establish a distance learning program so that all of our students can continue their education until schools reopen.
We are updating our families on the anticipated length of our district-wide school closure to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 as well as to provide an update on our current efforts to meet the academic and social and emotional needs of our students.
Our District continues to carefully monitor the recommendations and directives issued by Governor Gavin Newsom, Sacramento County, the city of Sacramento, and public health agencies at the federal, state, and local levels. Today, Sacramento County issued a Public Health Order directing all residents to stay at home, unless they are providing or accessing essential services, such as shopping for groceries or picking up meals. The Order is currently set to be in place until April 7, 2020, or until it is extended, rescinded, superseded, or amended in writing by the County Health Officer. For more information about the Order, please see the County’s Frequently Asked Questions web page.
As a result of this order, all Sac City Unified schools will remain closed through our scheduled spring break, April 6-10. Monday, April 13 is the earliest that our normal school schedule will resume. We will provide updates to our community if additional date changes are made before that date.
