School Opening and Safety Plan

Dear NUSD Community,

As we prepare for the second semester of the school year, Nuview Union School District strives to continue to provide a rigorous and quality instructional program for our students, while ensuring a safe environment for our students, staff, and community. We are committed to providing choices for families when we are allowed to begin in-person instruction. Our plan includes safety precautions and a clear outline for educational options for an in-person hybrid model and a continued distance learning pathway. Our team has worked hard to provide two pathways for students, allowing families to choose what they believe is best for their child.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, every decision has been and will continue to be aligned with the California Department of Public Health, and the Riverside University Public Health System guidelines specifically as it relates to schools and classrooms. The safety protocols and procedures outlined within this policy are aimed to mitigate, not eliminate, risk. No single action, or set of actions, will completely eliminate the risk of COVID-19 transmission, but the implementation of several coordinated interventions can significantly reduce that risk. Please note Riverside County remains in the Purple Tier in California's Blueprint for a Safer Economy, which prohibits us from offering in-person learning as of November 18, 2020. We will continue to closely monitor Riverside County's ability to meet the requirements outlined by the state for a return to in-person instruction.

We invite you to read our School Opening and Safety Plan. We hope the information provided will give families the information needed to make the best selection for their child(ren) for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. After reviewing our plan, we ask that families decide which of the two pathways they would like their child to
participate in for the second semester of the school year. For those families that want their child to attend school in-person when Riverside County permits us, no further action is required, as all students will be placed in the hybrid model by default. For those families who would like to remain in a complete distance learning format for the
remainder of the school year, please complete the "Program Model Commitment" form which was sent out to you through the Parent Square notification system on November 18, 2020.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and how it impacts you in the educational world.
