August 17, 2020: Update for Families on School Reopening from Chancellor Carranza

Dear Families,
In good times and in challenging times, I know that you want the best for your children. You want them to be safe, healthy, and happy. And you want them to always be learning, growing, and getting ready to take on the world. Our schools play such an important role in that, especially now, when the children of our city have been through so much. For us, health and safety always lead the way. Our vision for the fall is a safe, strong, and supportive learning environment and an excellent education for every one of our students. Schools will be in session and students will be learning five days per week—no matter where they are. We know a lot more now about how the learning experience is going to work. In this week’s Reopening Update for Families, you will find:

  • The latest health and safety information, including on ventilation, school nurses, and testing and tracing in schools
  • How to stay informed on confirmed COVID-19 cases in your school community
  • How families can change their children’s learning preference to/from fully remote learning
  • What happens if students attend school in-person on a day they are not scheduled to attend
  • Supports for students with Individualized Education Programs
  • Supports for students in temporary housing and foster care

    We know that planning for the new school year isn’t easy—for you, for our educators, for school staff, and for our communities. But I believe that by working together we can start the school year strong. I want to acknowledge the tireless work of your principals and school leaders, who have been hustling all summer to be ready for the first day of school.

    I also want to thank you. Your partnership has made it possible for us to consider and plan for both in-person and remote learning. Your continued investment and engagement in your school communities is a vital part of ensuring our students’ success not just during this upcoming school year but for years to come. We are privileged to serve you and your children, the young people who not long from now will be the ones leading our city.

    If you have questions regarding the information in this letter, please contact your principal. You can find principal contact information by searching for your child’s school on Find a School: Principal information is on each school’s web page at, in the “School Contacts and Information” section. And as always, all information regarding back to school can be found at
