In August, Moreland launched the school year in Distance Learning with the goal of reevaluating our position on October 1, 2020. In our September 11, 2020 message to the community, we shared that the Governor’s Tier system has schools in Santa Clara County off the purple tier and in the red tier for 14 days as of 9/23, indicating that schools were allowed to open IF they could follow ALL the guidelines with the current guidelines released.
“Under the guidance of the CDPH, schools may not open for in-person instruction until SCC has been out of the Tier 1 (Purple Tier) of the State’s “Blueprint” framework for 14 days. At that time, all schools can resume full in-person instruction, they must do so consistent with the requirements issued by the PHD: COVID-19 Prepared: Reopening of Santa Clara County K-12 Schools for the 20-21 school year and all applicable State requirements.”On Tuesday, September 22, 2020, additional guidelines were released from the Santa Clara County Health Department and the Santa Clara County Office of Education regarding schools returning for in-person instruction. District staff is currently reviewing the newest guidelines, and will continue to update the community through communications through email/phone, website updates, and updates at the upcoming Board Meetings.
