To Our Clovis Unified Families,
This week, Fresno County health officials announced that COVID conditions in our county continue to improve. With case counts dropping, Fresno County has announced they will consider elementary waivers for in-person instruction, and Clovis Unified is taking steps to prepare and submit such a waiver.
Superintendent Eimear O’Farrell, Ed.D. invites you to learn more about how this process will work, and the steps and conditions necessary for us to phase in the option of in-person instruction for students. Please watch her video message to our families here:
Plans to return students to our campuses will include recommended health and safety measures like six feet of distance between students, which leads to smaller class sizes and fewer kids on campuses at any given time. Other measures include increased disinfecting, use of face coverings, limiting shared supplies, and many others considerations we’ve been planning for over the past six months.
Conditions may change again, and improvements in case counts and positivity rates seen by Fresno County in recent weeks might reverse. To be prepared for either continued improvement in COVID conditions, or a setback, our plans and timelines can be adjusted, and we will keep you well informed every step of the way.
Thank you for continuing to watch your email and your school’s website, app and social media for opportunities to share your ideas and questions, and receive updates as we process early plans for a path back to campus.
Your Clovis Unified Team
