March 22, 2021 Dear Alta Vista Learning Community, I hope you are all doing well, and ready for our return to near normal operations. The road to reopening has been difficult, and the conditions are constantly changing as the state modifies its requirements on a weekly if not daily basis. All around us, the state is returning to pre-Covid-19 conditions with restaurants, health clubs, movie houses, and much more reopening to public access. Here in Tulare County, we entered the red tier as of last Wednesday and it is time to return to a hybrid model, which means students will attend half day and work online from home in the afternoon. Entering into the red tier essentially means that we can open our school utilizing the face to face learning model. This is fantastic news for our students and families, but it means that we need to accelerate our return schedule. It is most important that we return to face to face in all grades within three weeks of the county declaring the red tier. The purpose of this is to allow us to remain open if we return back to the purple tier, which would mean we could not open classes that were not open during the three week period. In the current conditions, we are looking at opening up on K-2 on March 29, 2021 with the grades 3-8 returning April 6, 2021 to a Hybrid face to face configuration that will offer face to face in the morning, and asynchronous activities in the afternoon. We will continue to operate with a 6 foot separation between students for safety purposes. All students must wear a mask and practice social distancing. Those of you who expressed interest in returning face to face on the survey will be placed first in the classrooms. In the meantime, please monitor the district website, which is www.altavistesd.org for more updates, and please be prepared to receive information via phone messages. Of course we are available to help you in any way possible. Our goal is to set the stage for a smooth transition back to the classroom. Looking forward to seeing you all again. Robert M. Hudson Ed.D. Superintendent
