Grossmont Union High School District

The California Department of Public Health’s COVID-19 Public Health Guidance for K-12 Schools is guided by the “principle that safe, in-person learning is critical to student well-being and development.”

That same principle has guided the Grossmont Union High School District since it opened for in-person instruction in September 2020, and it continues to do so today. 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 safe in-person and Independent Study options for our students.
The pages and documents below describe how the over-3000 caring members of the GUHSD staff are working collaboratively to put this key principle into practice for the benefit of all of our students.
