Together plans? We have answers!
Please join us on Tuesday, August 11 from 5:30 to 7:00 PM for
SCUSD’s Virtual Town Hall. At the event, we’ll talk about

On Wednesday, we announced that our 2020-21 academic year will
begin with a full distance learning mode. While we had hoped to
bring students back to both a blended learning model and distance
learning plan, because of rising COVID-19 cases, lag times in
testing, and inefficient contact tracing, we are unable to do so
at this time. While we may not be offering a blended learning
model at this time, we know that a strong distance learning plan
will be a foundational component for either model in our
Return Together plan.

school year will look for our next academic year. Summer has just
begun, but we are very excited to see the smiling faces of our
students again and we can’t wait to share the upcoming plan with
On June 24, Sac City Unified learned that an employee who works
at John Still Middle School had tested positive for COVID-19.
Sacramento County Public Health confirmed the positive test this
afternoon. Because of the limited staff on campuses at this time,

been working tirelessly to close the digital divide – including
providing our students with computers and looking for new and
innovative ways to connect our students to the internet.
Today, we’re announcing Sac City Kids Connect, a new program to
provide eligible Sac City Unified families with free internet at
home for six months.

Did you know that the first Queer & Transgender Pride marches
occurred one year after Stonewall? Early in the liberation
movement, Pride was a protest. It was a time to bring visibility

Stonewall Uprising was led by trans women of color like
