Reopening Information

  • The process of reopening schools involves meeting criteria set forth by the State, County agencies such as the Alameda County Public Health Department, and the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District.

    On February 25, 2021 our Board of Education voted unanimously to end school dismissal and open campuses to in-person learning for all grade levels starting March 21, 2021. Distance learning will continue for students whose families prefer that option.

  • Agency Approvals

    LVJUSD's California Safe Schools Plan - COVID-19 Safety Plan

    An approved plan is required in order to reopen TK-5 schools in the Purple Tier when the positive COVID-19 case rate is <25 per 100,000 for 5 consecutive days. With an approved plan, middle and high schools may reopen when Alameda County reaches the Red Tier and maintains that status for 5 consecutive days.

    Submission: February 3, 2021
    Approved: TBD
    Plan must be posted a minimum of 7 days prior to reopening

    LVJUSD's Alameda County Reopening Plan  

    An approved plan was required in order to reopen schools in the Red Tier. The day after our plan was approved, Alameda County entered the Purple Tier, allowing only in-person instruction for high needs students using the Small Cohort Guidance.

    Submitted: November 12, 2020
    Approved: November 16, 2020

    *Please note: The guidelines provided within each plan above indicate the minimum public safety threshholds which must be met before schools are allowed to reopen. There may be additional considerations at the district level that may impact the timeline of school reopening. Our Board of Education has made vaccinations for teachers and staff a priority before fully reopening to in-person learning.

  • Next Steps in Reopening

    Parents of students in grades TK-12 received communication about LVJUSD's intent to offer in-person learning this spring and were asked to indicate whether each student would remain in distance learning or preferred in-person learning for Trimester 3. 

    Elementary students were asked to commit to one of the following:

    • In-person learning
    • Distance learning
    • Follow their teacher regardless of their teacher's assignment to in-person or distance learning

    Middle and high school students were asked to commit to one of the following:

    • In-person learning
    • Distance learning

    School administrators are in the process of reviewing the survey results to determine any changes to Trimester 3 schedules that may be needed to honor placement requests. Once schedules are finalized, schools will contact parents and guardians to confirm student placement. Any parents who have not yet responded to the survey or who may have changed their preference will have an opportunity to provide information to their school principal.

    Update: At the February 25, 2021 Special Board Meeting, the LVJUSD Board of Education voted 5-0 to end school dismissal and resume in-person instruction for Preschool - Grade 12 beginning Monday, March 22, 2021. Distance learning will remain available for students that choose it. More information will be sent to families in the coming week regarding bell schedules and on-campus protocols.
