COVID-19 Response


 

Upcoming Transitions

March 22, 2021

     On March 16, our Governing Board approved this new reopening timeline by a vote of 5-0: 

  • Beginning Thursday, March 25, 2021, Preschool through 2nd grade and SDC classes will have an option to return to their school to attend In-person Learning Support sessions.
  • On Monday, March 29, 2021, students in grades 3-12 will have an option to return to their school to attend In-person Learning Support sessions.
  • A 100% distance learning model will continue to be an option for all families.

     Families should look for daily scheduling information to come from school site leadership. For all students and staff, arriving on campus will involve a regular confirmation of no illness symptoms or exposure. While on campus, masks and physical distancing will be required, in alignment with health authorities' recommendations. We're excited, and our school site leadership will be working hard to make sure all expectations are clearly communicated so that everyone feels comfortable.

     We have been busy preparing our school sites to be as safe as possible for staff and students. Boxes upon boxes of personal protection equipment (PPE) have been shipped to schools, ready for use. Sanitary supplies are stocked, campuses have installed safety signage, protocols are in place, and classrooms have been properly arranged for physical distancing. MERV-13 air filters have been installed at all possible locations at all school sites district-wide. All in all, a combination of health-conscious behavior, well-defined safety protocols, and a strong cleaning regimen gives us great confidence about our campuses' health safety. We are ready.

     For those thinking ahead to the Fall 2021, (next school year), August 12 will mark the beginning of a full-time return to schools, with plans for a separate distance learning option.


Union Agreements

     Mt. Diablo Unified School District continues to partner with its employee organizations and unions to establish Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) documents that will establish roles and responsibilities through each phase of reopening schools.
