Governor Newsom’s announcement today, Nov. 16, that moved Fresno County back to the purple tier does not interrupt Clovis Unified’s current instructional plans.
All district schools have partially opened in the last few weeks, allowing for the new hybrid instructional plan to begin. While some families have chosen to keep their students on the online-only instructional plan, others have chosen in-person hybrid instruction that follows required COVID health and safety guidelines. The guidelines – which include masks, social distancing, temperature checks, hand sanitizing, contact tracing, increased daily disinfecting and frequent cleaning of surfaces and facilities – were developed with input from the Fresno County Department of Public Health. The plans were intentionally designed to maintain the district’s ability to continue phasing in hybrid instruction should Fresno County move between tiers.
Each Clovis Unified school has created its own process on how it is phasing into the hybrid instructional model, with all school plans fully implemented in January.
