Share Your Voice
Your participation is urgently needed as we plan for the next school year while continuing to respond to the rapidly changing conditions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. We are collecting your input via the interactive platform Thoughtexchange. This platform gives all stakeholders an opportunity to share their thoughts, and to view and comment on the thoughts of others. Participate and follow the discussion focused on this key question: As we plan for the opening of the 2020-2021 school year, what should we be considering that will assist you in feeling comfortable about sending your children or returning to work at our school sites?
I know EUSD’s schools are physically closed. When will they reopen?
The Escondido Union School District and the San Diego County Office of Education continue to carefully monitor guidance from federal, state, and local public health and education agencies. Schools will reopen when state and health officials determine that it is safe to return. All decisions about reopening will be made in conjunction with local public health officials. The 2019-2020 school year is not over; it has just transitioned from classroom instruction into distance learning.
What is the latest COVID-19-related news from EUSD?
In recent weeks, we’ve regularly emailed letters to families containing important updates. Those letters are also available on our Family Communications page.
Are your schools still serving breakfast and lunch for students?
Yes. Free to-go meals (including breakfast and lunch) are being provided to all children age 18 and younger during COVID-19 school closures. Meals are available for pickup from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m Monday through Friday at eleven schools. Visit our Free To-Go Meals page to learn more.
I’m a parent. How do I ensure my child continues learning from home?
We have developed comprehensive digital resources for at-home learning. If you don’t have digital access, weekly paper study packets will be distributed at your child’s school on Fridays from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.
I’m the parent of a child with special needs. Are there additional at-home learning resources for Special Education?
Yes, we have created resources for Special Education. In addition, EUSD special education staff will be communicating with you regarding specific tools to meet your child’s individual education plan (to the extent feasible).
