The Hollister School District will hold Online Parent Town Hall events on June 8, 2020. This event will focus on the district’s plans to reopen school campuses on August 17, 2020. The event will take place on the district’s Youtube Channel at 5pm. Parents are encouraged to send emails to email@example.com or call (831) 630-6320 to participate in the event. Feedback from this event will help the School Reopening Task Force move forward with finalizing plans to reopen campuses.
The School Reopening Task Force is composed of classroom teachers, paraprofessionals, secretarial support staff, school nurses, and administration. The district has held the first three of five School Reopening Task Force meetings. The team will continue to meet each week to dig deep into the details of reopening schools. The task force will focus on social distancing, health guidelines, classroom instruction, online learning, and parent involvement. The School Reopening Task Force is working through the many policies that would need to be in place for schools to reopen with children attending in-person. Schools may reopen with a hybrid model where children spend some days at home and other days in school. Establishing a hybrid model would allow the schools to maintain 6 feet of social distance in classrooms and all areas of campus. If the public health guidance were to change for the better, the district is also planning for a full-return to in person learning as well.
