What Students Need To Know Before Returning to Campus
If your student has opted-in for in-person instruction, please make sure to read the following:
SUHSD has chosen to adopt a concurrent learning model, known by many as “zoomers and roomers”. The Concurrent Instructional Model is a partial return to on-site instruction with the following key elements:
Students will maintain their exisisting class schedules
Teachers will be in their classrooms while delivering instruction
Instruction will be delivered via Zoom whether the student is on campus or at home
Students who opt for 100% distance learning will attend Zoom classes from home just as they have done all school year.
Wednesdays will continue to be asynchronous days
Schedules and Groups
Beginning the week of April 5, 2021, 25% of students will return to school in the in-person instruction/concurrent instructional model. The student body at each campus will be divided into four groups (A, B, C, and D). The return to campus will be as follows:
On April 5 & 6 Group A will be invited to attend class on campus
On April 8 & 9 Group B will be invited to attend class on campus
On April 12 & 13 Group C will be invited to attend class on campus
On April 15 & 16 Group D will be invited to attend class on campus
After the first two weeks, schools will combine the four Groups into Groups up to 50% capacity. Example: A+B and C+D
Starting on April 19 or when we are in the “Orange” tier, whichever is later, up to half of the student body will be invited to be on campus at any time:
Example: Group A+B will attend Mondays and Tuesdays, and group C+D on Thursdays and Fridays.
Students will need to know their designated Group Assignments (A, B, C, D) and have received their class schedules before returning to campus. If you have not been assigned a group or have not received your class schedule, please contact your school site immediately.
Health & Safety Guidelines
ADaily Health Check is required for any student on campus or any district site for any reason. Please readFrontlineStudent Portal Instructions before returning to campus. Students will complete the health screening before entering campus every day.

Parents should log into Infinite Campus to see their student's attendance prior to contacting the school to inquire about student absences
Parents should discuss with their student(s) why classes were not attended in person

If these students attend virtually, teachers will still mark students absent and note "Zoom" in the attendance comment code
Attendance calls will be sent home daily as usual; the district is required to communicate student attendance with parents and guardians on a regular basis
Tardies and Attendance codes will be utilized as important data markers for Covid contact tracing
Students will need to bring a charged laptop or Chromebook to school. Student headphones (basic wired) will be provided, but students can use their own headphones.
