Grossmont Union High School District

Guided by several key principles, the Grossmont Union High School District is committed to safely providing our students with as much in-person instruction as possible:
  • Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, GUHSD has worked closely with state and local public health agencies and has followed all public health guidelines. We will continue to do so.
  • 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.”
  • GUHSD‘s experience during the 2020-2021 school year affirms the Governor’s position regarding in-person learning.
  • 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.”
The pages and documents below describe how the over-3000 caring members of the GUHSD staff are working collaboratively to put these key principles into practice for the benefit of all of our students.
