San Diego County has been removed from the state watch list, and some schools are starting to entertain the idea of reopening. At this time, The O'Farrell Charter School does not have a planned date for reopening and will instead focus its efforts on refining its distance learning program. To ensure that all safety requirements are met, we will continue with distance learning through mid-October. This date guarantees we will continue distance learning past the first grading period.
Over the next few weeks, we will monitor county health data and reassess our plan. We are adopting a safe reopening plan that is aligned with county and state guidance, which will be evaluated by the county, and then go to our board for approval. We will communicate its details with stakeholders prior to our physical reopening. When we are able to open our campus to students, families will still have the option of participating in a full distance learning program.
We wish you a safe, healthy, and engaging 2020-2021 school year.
