Opening Up Schools Plan

The San Carlos School District Opening Up Schools Plan was approved at the June 18 School Board meeting to prepare for school in the fall. You may review it here.

The Opening Up Schools Task Force began work on this plan May 27, 2020. We want to thank the 130 staff and parents who participated in the weekly discussions by providing input and feedback. Staff invested significant time to create this plan based on the San Mateo County Office of Education Pandemic Recovery Framework’s four pillars, stakeholder input, parent and staff surveys, and the ability to implement models based on our current staffing and the availability of space on our campuses, to allow for physical distancing. Staff used the building blocks of health and safety, social-emotional needs of students, and academics as the foundation of the plan.

Update from Principal Fast

As we all begin to process this disruption to our daily routines, I hope you find comfort in the small, sometimes overlooked, fortunes we have in our lives. This is a rare opportunity to spend time with our families that we would not, in other circumstances, be able to have. Though we may be feeling stress and anxiety, it is important to help our children process this change as well.

Volunteering is a great way to build community while supporting our students. There are a lot of options - some bigger and some smaller - some during school hours and many that can be done from home. We have multiple one time events this month which could use your help too: the Science Festival, Ability Awareness Week and at the Book Fair!
