Posted on 08/14/2021

School is Back. San Diego Unified is planning for a full return to full-day, in-person learning, five days a week, for the 2021-22 school year. The fall programming at schools will not include a hybrid model for students, and educators will not be required to simultaneously teach both an onsite instructional model and an online instructional model. The district is in the process of developing a robust online learning program for students who will choose an virtual instructional model.

Staying Safe for Back to School: Let's Do This!

We're a little more than one week away from the official start of the new school year, and that means a time of excitement and anticipation for everyone in the San Diego Unified community.

When students return to class on August 30, they will be welcomed by enthusiastic teachers and staff who have been working hard to ensure schools are safe and ready for learning.

Our schools have implemented a robust assortment of safety measures to protect students, staff, and families, including a massive investment in air filtration and other equipment. In fact, San Diego Unified has installed MERV-8 and MERV-13 filters at 195 locations across the district - more than 7,250 filters in all - to upgrade filtration in classrooms and offices.

Additional recommendations from a scientific panel of nationally recognized experts, which include disinfecting procedures, improved ventilation, and indoor mask requirements, have been implemented as well.

But in the fight against COVID-19, it's up to all of us to do our part so our schools can operate smoothly and safely throughout the year - including getting vaccinated, for those 12 years of age or older. Vaccines are free and readily accessible throughout the region, and can be found by calling 211 or visiting
