Dear Lemon Grove Families:

Our plan is to welcome all students who wish for a full return to in-person instruction back to school on Wednesday, August 18, 2021. After over a year of change and disruption during the 2020-2021 school year, resuming on campus experiences for our students is our desire and our priority. 

We must follow guidelines set by the County of San Diego and the California Department of Public Health, but current information from the California Department of Education (CDE) indicates that we plan for a full return to campuses across LGSD in the Fall. CDE is not providing any waivers for hybrid instructional models in the 2021-2022 school year. 
Full return means: 5 days a week, on a regular schedule (M, T, Th, Fri - full days; Wed - minimum day), for ALL school sites. 
For those families who do not feel comfortable sending their children back to school full time, the district will offer a full virtual program for those who are interested. Please stay tuned for more details.

Best wishes,
Erica Balakian

Estimadas familias de Lemon Grove:

Nuestro plan es dar la bienvenida a todos los estudiantes que deseen regresar de forma completa a la instrucción en persona de vuelta a la escuela el día 18 de agosto del 2021. Después de más de un año de cambios y alteraciones, es nuestro deseo y nuestra prioridad que nuestros estudiantes regresen a las experiencias del campus escolar. Debemos seguir la normativa marcada por el condado de San Diego y por el departamento de Salud Pública de California, pero información actual por parte del departamento de Educación de California (CDE) sugiere un regreso completo al campus escolar a nivel de todo el distrito escolar de Lemon Grove (LGSD) en el otoño. El CDE no está proporcionando ningún permiso o ´waiver´ para los modelos de instrucción de formato combinado para el año escolar 2021-22. 

Regresar de forma completa significa: 5 días a la semana, horario regular (Lu, Ma, Ju, Vi - días de horario completo y Mi - día de salida temprana) para todas las escuelas.

Para aquellas familias que no se sientan cómodas enviando a sus niños de vuelta a la escuela a tiempo completo, el distrito ofrecerá un programa virtual a tiempo completo para aquellos que estén interesados. Por favor estén atentos a más detalles que les vamos a ir ofreciendo.

Mis mejores deseos,
Erica Balakian
