Alta Vista Elementary School District (AVESD) is preparing for opening Fall 2020 on Thursday, August 13, 2020. More details will be coming throughout the summer as there is a great deal of uncertainty about how COVID-19 will impact school campuses by the start of the new school year. We are designing multiple scenarios in order to be prepared to deliver high-quality educational opportunities to our students. We are also mindful to plan schedules that can swiftly adapt in response to current conditions without causing major disruptions to our students, families, and staff. We are committed to keeping our community safe and following the guidelines of the CDC, State of California, County Public Health, and CDE once they are released. We are anticipating recommendations that could include face coverings, modifying recess/break procedures, re-thinking physical education, limiting the number of students in a class at one time, social distancing in all areas (classrooms, hallways, cafeterias, offices, etc.) additional cleaning measures, and health screening requirements.
We understand our families have unique needs and we want to be prepared to support your child. In planning reopening scenarios, our first choice would be to offer a traditional schedule with students attending school a full day everyday on the physical campus.
MODEL A: Normal schedule with students attending class five days a week.
MODEL B: Blended Learning Model. Students attend physical school two days per week and use distance learning on the other three days of the week.
MODEL C: Distance Learning Model. Students do not attend physical school but will participate online.
We value your input and want to know how we can support our students, families, and staff in being successful in any of the possible scenarios. Please help us by taking a few minutes to respond to the survey questions regarding reopening this fall.
