SAN JOSE, Calif. (KRON) – The San Jose Unified School District is bringing some students back to the classroom with new learning options.
More than 10,000 students will return to campus starting Wednesday.
According to the school principals, the reopening date has been set for April 21st so that staff will be vaccinated when they return to campus. By early April, 85% of school staff in San Jose had been vaccinated.
Students can still prepare for live lessons from home, with teachers broadcasting their lessons while some students are in the classroom with them.
The school district said it also provides personal support to students studying from home by putting them into “small, stable cohorts”.
Here are the safety measures to be taken when pedestrian traffic increases in the school halls:
- Face coverings
- Stable groups
- Physical distancing
- Adequate ventilation
- Hand hygiene
- cleaning and desinfection
- Symptom and contact contact screening
- Surveillance tests
Parents and guardians with children who have returned to the classroom can return to distance learning at any time.
However, the school district says that if a student goes back to home study, they will not be able to study in person for the remainder of the school year.
