California Governor Gavin Newsom has said that “in-person (instruction) is the best setting to meet not only the core learning needs of students, but also their mental health and social-emotional needs.”
The Grossmont Union High School District agrees, and our experience during the 2020-2021 school year affirms the Governor’s position.
Further, the “foundational principle” of the California Department of Public Health’s guidance for K-12 schools for the 2021-2022 school year is that “all students must have access to safe and full in-person instruction and to as much instructional time as possible.”
Therefore, as we work closely with state and local public health agencies and continue to follow all public health guidelines, GUHSD is firmly committed to providing our students with as much in-person instruction as possible because that is what is best for our students.
