Dear SUHSD Community,

This week, the Board of Trustees with district and school site leadership met to discuss school site operations, second-semester learning models, and the parent survey results. If you were unable to attend, we have included a summary presentation for your reference. This presentation will also be available on our website with other COVID-19 related updates. 

Last week, I provided you with an update on our Reopening Plan, and shared that we submitted our plan to the San Mateo County Office of Education. The plan submitted is required by the County Office of Education in collaboration with San Mateo County Health for districts to incrementally open for in-person instruction for all tier colors, except for purple. As a reminder, the plan requires the district to address the following: 

  • Cleaning & Disinfection
  • Cohorting, Entrance & Egress 
  • Face Coverings
  • Health Screenings
  • Hygiene Practices
  • Contact Tracing
  •  Physical Distancing 
  • Staff & Family Education 
  • COVID Testing Staff/Students 
  • Triggers for Transitioning to Distance Learning
  • Communication Plan

The Sequoia Union High School District is the first public high school district in San Mateo County to submit a plan for county-level review. The plan is a working document and will be updated and amended as we are able to further define key components of instruction and health and safety measures. 

Thank you for your continued attention.


Crystal Leach
Interim Superintendent
