Update April 28: IUSD is aware of comments made by Governor Newsom during a press briefing this afternoon. With “cautious optimism,” the Governor discussed the possibility of schools reopening for the 2020-21 school year starting this summer. Additional guidance for schools will be coming from the Governor’s office in the following days. As we have more information, we will provide updates to our community.
In the meantime, IUSD will work with state and local agencies and health experts to understand what this possibility may mean for our district and students. Please know that IUSD’s decision making process will be based on expert health guidelines to ensure the safety of our students and staff.
This is the first time IUSD or any California school district has heard about this possibility. Thank you for your patience as we work to better understand what it means.
