Dear Emery USD Community,
We will start the School Year with Distance Learning on August 20, 2020. A Virtual Town Hall Meeting will be held Wednesday, July 29, at 5:30 pm.
On Friday, July 17, 2020, Governor Newsom held a press conference. He shared criteria that would require schools in counties placed on the health “watchlist” — based on specific indicators to teach online until conditions improve. Currently, 33 of the State’s 58 counties, including Alameda County, are on the list.
As a result, EUSD must provide education through a rigorous distance learning program until Alameda County is no longer on the State’s health “watchlist” for 14 consecutive days. We know our staff and families need to make plans for the next school year, so we want to provide you timely information to plan accordingly.
Our district’s Reopening Schools Committee worked on plans for both distance learning and a hybrid model. So, I am confident that our staff will work diligently to provide an impactful distance learning program and prepare for a "phased in" hybrid model when our county meets the State’s criteria aforementioned.
We want to thank our students, families, and staff for completing the surveys and providing input about the reopening of schools. We are still soliciting input via the surveys provided here: EUSD Family Survey We would also like to invite you to a virtual town hall meeting, Wednesday, July 29, 2020, at 5:30 pm. The Zoom login information is listed at the top of this page.
To view the agenda for this meeting, go to www.emeryusd.org We certainly value your input and look forward to having you join us for the meeting. If you are unable to attend or prefer to share your feedback via the survey, please feel free to add your comment to the survey mentioned above. As always, thank you for your partnership and support.
