An update on reopening schools was provided to the Board of Education at a special meeting July 9. Click here to review the presentation, which includes extensive details and sample schedules for the proposed learning models.
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 did not end early; it transitioned from classroom instruction into distance learning. The scheduled first day of school for the 2020-2021 school year is Aug. 11.
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 food for students over the summer?
Yes. Free to-go meals are being provided to all children age 18 and younger through Aug. 10. Meals are available for pickup from 11 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday at five 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?
