Cambio al primer día de clases
 
Update 7/28/20, 7pm - In order to provide a quality instructional program for our students and staff families, we will be postponing our students’ start of the school year. The first day for students will be August 17, 2020, and the last day of school for students will be June 10, 2021. You can expect your child’s school to forward more detailed information in the near future about what this learning at home will look like.

Our school site offices are open for our families during our regular school business hours and our staff are working hard to answer questions about the distribution of supplies and distance learning equipment that is needed to launch our new school year. 

We encourage you to continue to check your email and our district website and/or the school websites for the latest information and updates as we approach the first day of school on August 17.

Thank you for your patience and support of our students and staff, 

Superintendent Dr. Pyle

Actualización del plan de reapertura de SJUSD
 
On July 23, our Board of Trustees adopted a resolution to extend district emergency authorizations due to the COVID-19 conditions that continue to exist as we prepare for the start of the new school year, as well as acknowledging that this year will begin with only distance learning for our students. The health and safety of students and staff remain our top priority, and we are completely dedicated to designing the best learning and teaching opportunities for all. 

Our administrative teams and staff groups have been meeting, discussing the processes and procedures needed to ensure we meet the Governor’s directives for rigorous distance learning. We are focusing on four main areas in regards to instruction:
- Devices (Chromebooks) and connectivity (internet connection) so that every SJUSD student can participate in distance learning
- Daily live interaction and required participation for every child with teachers and other students
- Engaging lessons and graded class assignments that are challenging and equivalent to in-person instruction
- Targeted support and intervention for English learners, homeless, foster youth and special education students.
 
We recognize that everyone is anxiously awaiting additional information about our new school year. However, we also recognize the importance of providing clear and accurate information. School office staff will be reporting to the campuses next week, and they will begin sending parents specific information as noted by Superintendent Dr. Pyle in his weekly Five Fast Facts - Video 3, posted on our website (or at this link).    
 
We encourage you to continue to check your email and our district website and/or the school websites for the latest information and updates as we approach the first day of school.

Thank you for your continued trust in San Jacinto Unified as we begin the journey into the 2020-2021 school year!
