Message from the Superintendent

Dear Students, Families and Staff,

Provided for you in this document is the Elk Grove Unified School District’s “Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan.” This plan is a revision from our EGUSD COVID-19 Safety Plan and outlines our District’s implementation, to the greatest extent practicable, updated prevention and mitigation policies in line with the most up-to-date guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) K-12 Guidance for 2021-2022 in collaboration with our local Sacramento County Public Health (SCPH) Officers for the reopening and operation of school facilities to effectively maintain the health and safety of students, educators, and other staff.

Knowing that COVID-19 continues to circulate in our local community, including its variants, and in recognition that in-person learning is essential for the well-being of our students, the mitigation strategies our District will be implementing will enable us to provide high quality in-person educational services and supports for every child in our District.

In line with our Wellness Policy of Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds and Healthy Learning, we will continue to promote COVID-19 vaccination clinics, follow state public health requirements, solicit community feedback and comment on our safety plans and subsequent revisions, and provide continuity of services for the academic, social, behavioral, and emotional support our students need including transportation and food and nutrition services.

Christopher R. Hoffman Superintendent
