Big picture

ALL VUSD High School's will remain virtual to begin 2nd semester

As a result of Governor Newsom’s new Safe Schools for All Plan and the accompanying revisions to the California COVID-19 and Reopening In-Person Instruction Framework & Public Health Guidance for K-12 Schools in California, 2020-2021 School Year, Vista Unified is required to postpone the return of middle and high school students to in-person learning until a plan is approved by the California Safe and Successful Schools Team that incorporates the new state requirements.

The Vista Unified team, including the Board President and Vice President, met with representatives from Governor Newsom’s Safe and Successful Schools Team on Monday, January 11, 2021 to review our school reopening plans for secondary schools. Dr. Naomi Bardach, the lead for the Safe and Successful Schools Team, informed the team that the new CDPH guidelines would include strict language regarding social distancing and the type of stable groups, with emphasis on secondary schools. Dr. Bardach communicated the expectation that middle and high schools cannot return to in-person learning until their team reviews a reopening plan that is aligned with the new CDPH requirements. Click HERE to read a letter Dr. Bardach sent to local health officers and superintendents outlining the changes made to safety guidelines.

This means that middle schools will not be able to return to Vista Classic, in-person instruction on Tuesday, January 19, 2021, nor will the high schools be able to return on Tuesday, January 26, 2021. The revised CDPH guidelines were published today and contain a number of new requirements that more clearly define social distancing and stable groups (formerly referred to as cohorts). The Vista Unified staff will review the revised guidelines and make preparations for the school board to discuss the impact of these requirements on the learning models for all grade levels and provide direction during the regularly scheduled board meeting on Thursday, January 21, 2021. One of the new requirements for schools that have already opened for in-person learning is to post on the website for each school a COVID-19 Safety Plan (CSP) by February 1, 2021. One aspect of the CSP is a COVID-19 School Guidance Checklist for each school to verify compliance with the new requirements for social distancing and stable groups.
