San Carlos Unified School District Plans To Re-Open Schools to Full Time Classroom Instruction
San Carlos Unified School District plans on a long-awaited reopening of schools for in person daily instruction starting on Monday February 28th, 2022. The reopening will be staggered as follows:
San Carlos High School: Monday, February 28, 2022
San Carlos Middle School: Monday, March 7, 2022
Rice Primary and Intermediate School: Monday, March 7, 2022
Although online learning and hybrid instruction has allowed our students and staff to remain safe, we know that our students learn best and deserve daily in-person learning.
Our goal remains to have all eligible students fully vaccinated. Even though our efforts and commitment to meet this goal have fallen short, we will continue to partner with local health agencies to provide accessibility for students and their families to obtain vaccinations.
Your child was sent home with a COVID-19 opt-out consent form prior to Christmas break. This opt out form provided parents/guardians an opportunity to say “no” to permitting school employees authorization to conduct the COVID-19 antigen test at school to your child. If the opt out consent form was not returned, your child will be tested on the first day upon return and possibly periodically as a precaution and measure for the safety of all students and staff.
To learn more about the school testing protocol and the impact it will have on your child, please reach out to school district nurse, Christina Verdugo at 928-475 2378 with any questions you may have regarding the COVID-19 antigen test and/or the testing protocol.
