Superintendent Messages to Parents:

April 20, 2021

As conditions continue to improve in Stanislaus County and the State of California, we are pleased to share an updated timeline that will increase in-person learning opportunities for your children.

Beginning Monday, April 26th secondary students (grades 6-12) will blend cohorts and attend classes four days a week.  Secondary students will remain on this hybrid model schedule through the end of the current school year.  Those students livestreaming in secondary classes may continue to do so. 

Beginning Monday, May 3rd elementary students (pre-k through 5) will return to five-day a week in-person instruction on a traditional full-day schedule.  With the exception of some special education programs, livestreaming will be discontinued for elementary students. 

Those families desiring a distance learning mode of instruction for their children will need to enroll in Open Valley School.  If you plan to continue distance learning for the remainder of this school year through Open Valley School, please notify your site principal right away so we can enroll your child in this educational option. If your child is currently attending in-person instruction, and you do not want to change their placement, there is nothing further you need to do.

We plan to safely return to full in-person instruction for ALL students during the 2021-22 school year.  Our district remains committed to providing the best educational programming for students.  Distance Learning through Open Valley School will continue as an option for families, but we need your assistance to provide adequate staffing and resources for your child in this program.  If your intention is to continue this placement for the next school year, you will need to indicate this to your site administrator at this time as well.


Dr. Philip M. Alfano, Superintendent
