This new year brings reasons for hope in the fight against the pandemic. Unfortunately, some old challenges remain.

With the county’s COVID-19 status still in the Widespread (Purple) Tier, we cannot proceed with our January 19 reopening plans. We will need to remain in our Phase One distance learning probably for several more weeks.

You may have heard about Governor Newsom’s announced a $2 billion “Safe Schools for All” plan to encourage more schools to reopen for in-person instruction in 2021. While it’s a welcome idea, we know from experience that the devil is often in the details. The legislators must sign off on the proposed plan, and they do not return to session until January 9th. As we have previously experienced, the proposed plan will likely have adjustments before it is solidified. 

One of the plan’s metrics is the county’s case counts must be below 28 per 100,000 to be eligible.  As of January 5th, Santa Clara County was at 61 per 100,000, according to CovidActNow.  

Through our weekly meetings with legislative analysts, public health officials and other decision-makers, we will continue to advocate for the needs of our district, synthesize the information, and adapt to this proposal’s developments to our local situations and resources.

We will update our community—families and staff—as more information becomes known.

Meanwhile, our district and community partners have arranged various supports for students and families. We are continuing to provide up to five days worth of free breakfast, lunch, and after school meals, five days a week, at seven of our schools. Our CampbellCare program has opened and has space at several school sites. (Cusdexpandedlearning [at] campbellusd.org (Email them for details).) Community Liaisons, school counselors and other specialists are available to connect students and families to community based resources for social, emotional and physical health needs.

We will continue to prepare for when we can safely welcome teachers and students back to the classroom for in-person instruction.

Schools in our district have been planning to begin the gradual return to in-person instruction once our Winter Break ends. However, Santa Clara County's recent stay-at-home orders are in effect until January 4th, meaning there likely will be a change in our start date. 

The superintendent will provide an update to the Governing Board at its December 10 meeting. School principals will send information to parents on Friday, Dec. 11th that includes our COVID-19 Parent Handbook. The handbook is intended to help families have a better idea about what to expect when students start returning to the classroom in the new year.

Please check your email and our websites frequently for updates.

Due to a stark increase in COVID-19 cases, Santa Clara County has moved back two tiers to the most restrictive Purple or Widespread Tier as defined in the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. This development could delay the January launch of our district’s plans to gradually bring students back to school for in-person instruction. 

The Governor surprised state and local planners on November 16th when he announced his “emergency brake” that moved Santa Clara County from the Orange to the Purple tier order effective November 17th.

The district had been planning to begin Phase Two of its Reopening Plan on January 4th. If the county is still in the Purple Tier when the December Winter Break begins, that date will need to change, according to Superintendent Shelly Viramontez.

The Blueprint specifies that schools that have not reopened for in-person instruction must wait to reopen until the county has been in the Substantial (Red) Tier for 14 days. Programs already in operation may continue, such as the district’s Learning Labs, CampbellCare and preschools.

“Our first priority is the health and safety of our students and staff,” said Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. “We encourage everyone to help get the virus back under control so schools—and other parts of our community—can reopen. Wear a face covering, wash hands frequently, practice physical distancing, and limit social gatherings to your own household.

The county is scheduled to remain in the Purple Tier through December 8th. Depending on how local trends look, the District will determine whether to delay the January 4th reopening date or not.

See a video breifing from the Superintendent on our Youtube channel. Please also watch for updates on the changing status of school reopening via email and in our weekly e-newsletters

See the November 17, 2020 Executive Summary for an overview of the changes. Details about how the Governor’s order will impact our county as a whole are on the Santa Clara County Public Health Department website.
