“Based on our collaboration with and updated information from public health officials, and with ongoing support and feedback from our Board of Education and labor partners, we will start our school year in August with our improved Full Distance Learning model,” affirmed Christopher R. Hoffman, Superintendent of Schools. 

He further stated, “Thanks to our community and their valued feedback, we have developed a flexible plan that enables us to respond and adapt effectively to changing health conditions. Based on recent challenges in testing, the inability to receive timely results and the significant rise in confirmed cases, current health conditions warrant a shift back to our Full Distance Learning model. The goal for the entire Elk Grove Unified community is a safe and full return to school when health conditions allow.”

District officials, school administrators and staff will continue to reach out to parents understanding the importance of the safety for our students and staff and the significant impact this will have on the entire community, students, families and staff. The District along with each school will provide parents with more Back-to-School details. Parents are asked to check their emails regularly and their school and District websites for updates, past information and for additional services and resources.
