Fall 2020-2021 School Opening Plan - Distance Learning

Due to rising cases in Santa Clara County and the uncertainty of this pandemic, we are placing the health and safety of students, staff, and families as our highest priority. There is no doubt that we all want students returning to classrooms where they can properly focus on academics and thrive in their environment. Until there is stability in containment of the virus, we cannot risk the safety of the very students we serve. Students to begin the school year in Distance Learning - August 12.

Re: Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year

August 5, 2020
 
Dear Parents and Staff,
 
Public education and personal lives were disrupted in March 2020, and our lives have not been the same since. Since March, we have all focused on staying safe and healthy. I assure you, Oak Grove School District has placed unrelenting focus on student and staff safety, and ensuring an effective Distance Learning plan is in place.
 
OGSD students’ first day of school is Wednesday August 12. If you have not already received communication from your school with specifics such as start time, duration, and other instructions, you can contact the school directly and check the school website. On August 10 and 11, we will deploy an individual Chromebook for every student and provide internet access to qualifying families. Details about distribution will come to you from the school principal. As a parent, you have the option of using your own device for your child(ren), but must notify your school if this is your preference. This will ensure all students have the appropriate tools for distance learning.
 
Pandemic or no pandemic, OGSD believes every student’s potential must be achieved. Linked here are key factors we’ve included in the Distance Learning Plan. Families have access to technology support and students will receive daily interaction with their assigned teacher. Unlike last year’s distance learning, attendance will be taken every day and grades will be issued to assigned work given to students by their teacher(s).

Please help your child by designating a quiet space at home where they can concentrate and engage with their teacher and classmates. This is a difficult time for students and it is important we all work together and provide students with encouragement. We are all anxious to return to the classroom, and we will monitor COVID-19 guidance closely along with communication provided from city and state officials.

We appreciate your patience during these challenging times. To continue to receive updates, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or www.ogsd.net for communications like this and up to the minute information.

This year is unlike any year any of us has experienced, but together we can be successful and make it memorable for our students. Please reach out to your teacher, school, district, and community support systems. We are all in this together.

Stay safe,
 
José L. Manzo
Superintendent
