School Reopening Plan for Learning, Health and Safety
Abraxas High School Reopening Plan for Learning, Health, and Safety
On Friday, July 17, Governor Newsom announced clear mandates for how and when California schools can physically reopen. Schools can reopen if the county they are located in is removed from the state’s COVID-19 monitoring list for 14 consecutive days. At this time, San Diego County has been placed on the state monitoring list due to rising cases since early July. As such, the San Diego County Department of Public Health’s latest public health order does not allow for the physical reopening of schools.
Poway Unified School District (PUSD) continues to monitor local public health conditions to ensure our reopening plans are in alignment with county, state, and federal guidelines and recommendations. This plan ensures PUSD is on track to reopen our schools for in-person learning as soon as possible pending health orders.
The following plan:
DISTANCE LEARNING - QUARTER 1 - Diploma Students
Please reach out to your student's advisor for his/her schedule or call the office for more help.
Community Resources COVID-19
Below is a link provided by PUSD to a list of community resources that students and families have access to. This comprehensive list will provide resources for crisis counseling, food and diaper assistance, parenting support, mental health support, and academic resources. Please let one of the Abraxas counselors know if you need further assistance. The best form of contact is through email. Ashley McGee: email@example.com and Linda Hastings: Lhastings@powayusd.com
