Summerville Union High School District
Based on the COVID 19 virus pandemic, Summerville Union High School District has created a plan for the 2020-2021 school year to protect students, staff and our community to the best of our ability from the continued transmission of the virus. To that end the following plan will address specific areas of focus to mitigate this transmission. School started August 19, 2020 in a 100% Distance Learning format. This format went through the end of our first grading period of October 2, 2020. Some small groups of students (Connections Academy 7th and 8th grade cohort) started on campus on September 14, 2020, and we had staff on campus to support these students and their programs. On September 21, 2020, we added two other cohorts of students in our special needs students and students without reliable internet connectivity. Any staff member on campus completes the Assumption of Risk form if they intend to bring their own child on campus while in the process of work. We started with a hybrid model of students attending (A-K) Monday and Tuesday, students (L-Z) Wednesday and Thursday and all students
remote learning on Friday. Our full student body returned to campus daily from 8:00-12:30 starting on October 19, 2020 with the confirmation from our local Public Health Department and School Board. All students and staff are masked and lunch is only on a grab-and-go at the end of the school day as all students are leaving campus. The start of the 2020-2021 school year is upon us and all school facilities (fields, gyms, classrooms) are closed to outside agencies for facility use permits until such time as the Tuolumne County Public Health Officer and the Summerville High facility use committee deems the facilities safe for use. Sports Conditioning started in December of 2020, but was interrupted when the county entered the Purple Tier. The sports conditioning is now up and running again effective January 19, 2021. Sports Competitions are allowedunder a plan crafted by the Athletic Directors and Principals of each of the Mother Lode League Schools with the three Public Health officials (Amador, Calaveras and Tuolumne) agreement. Competitions for outdoor sports programs will start March 12, 2021. No indoor competitions will be allowed.
