The Stockton Unified School District is pleased to announce students will have the opportunity to return to in-person learning April 29, 2021. Administrators, teachers and staff are ready to welcome back students.
More than 23,000 parents and students responded to our surveys. Half expressed a desire to return to school and half expressed a desire to continue in the distance learning model.
“We are excited to begin the return to school April 29. In response to parents, we will offer both hybrid and in-person instruction for remainder of the year,” says Interim Superintendent John Ramirez Jr.
The students will be split in 3 groups. Group A will attend school on Monday’s and Tuesdays and Group B will attend Thursdays and Fridays. Group C remains in distance learning. All students will participate in distance learning on Wednesdays so our staff can sanitize and prepare. Groups will be announced Friday April 23, 2021.
All 56 schools have been prepared sanitized and meet or exceed State and Federal guidelines. Desks have been moved to social distance and students will be required to wear masks.
Bus schedules and food distribution schedules are posted on the SUSD website. Students who come to school will get daily breakfast, lunch and after school snack at the end of the day. All students are eligible to receive weekly meal packets regardless if they are attending on-site or not.
While some may ask why return to school with a month left of the semester? Our answer is to give every student an opportunity to thrive. We recognize the importance of social and emotional needs for learning.
“We are excited to resume live instruction and the benefit it offers to many students,” says Ramirez Jr.
Our Mission is to graduate every student to be college, career, and community ready. In doing so, we lift all youth out of circumstances of poverty and scarcity.
Parents are being asked to register their students by Thursday April 22 by 8pm. Group assignments will be announced Friday April 23.
We are here for you and your children.
