Reopening Plan Update
Revised Reopening Plan and Parent Distance Learning Survey
Hanford Joint Union High School District Schools will reopen under a state mandated, Distance Learning Model on Monday, August 17, 2020, which, for our district is considered Plan C. This plan also lays out our Plan B, which is our A/B Cohort Hybrid Model in which students return to school on campus under a modified schedule, and Plan A in which all students return to school five days a week, but with added safety protocols and practices. As a district, we will move into Plan B and eventually Plan A as quickly as we can in accordance with state mandates and county clearance as well as what is most practical for our district.
Our plan and timeline to reopen aligns with other districts in our region and most of the state of California and has been reviewed by the Kings County Department of Public Health to meet recommended safety measures and protocols to help slow and reduce the spread of COVID-19 during the continued pandemic. We are confident that our plans and procedures will allow our students to receive excellent educational content and supports while on Distance Learning and, once we are allowed, a safe and seamless return to physical school. Although all county schools will begin in a Distance Learning Model, we feel it is important that we share all details for our return to campus as well. In this plan you will not only see the safety measures we have in place for our various sites and events, but also the supports we have in place should a student become ill or live in a household with an infected family member and need to have an extended absence. We pride ourselves at HJUHSD in having a wide variety of educational options for our students and now is no different. We are sure that whatever your student or family may be facing, we have a solution for them. As with all best laid plans, this plan is subject to change and grow in this ever-changing pandemic environment.
Our plan lays out both our Distance Learning Model and our other Independent and Online School options. Please review our plan and complete the survey by August 7th to let us know if you will be choosing our Distance Learning Model, or plan to enroll in one of our other Independent Study or Online School oprions.
