  •   School Reopening Plan for Learning, Health and Safety

    Introduction
    On Friday, July 17, Governor Newsom announced clear mandates for how and when California schools can physically reopen. Schools can reopen if the county they are located in is removed from the state’s COVID-19 monitoring list for 14 consecutive days. At this time, San Diego County has been placed on the state monitoring list due to rising cases since early July. As such, the San Diego County Department of Public Health’s latest public health order does not allow for the physical reopening of schools.
     
    Poway Unified School District (PUSD) continues to monitor local public health conditions to ensure our reopening plans are in alignment with county, state, and federal guidelines and recommendations. This plan ensures PUSD is on track to reopen our schools for in-person learning as soon as possible pending health orders.
     
    The following plan:
