SCUC ISD schools will open for instruction on Thursday, August 13 with all students participating through remote instruction until Tuesday, September 8. Board Trustees unanimously approved the recommendation by staff to go exclusively with remote learning during the first three-plus weeks of school for the fifteen campuses located in Guadalupe County at a called meeting held on July 23.
Last week, San Antonio Metro Health ordered all Bexar County schools, which includes Corbett Junior High School and Rose Garden Elementary School, to close through the Labor Day weekend due to COVID-19 pandemic. In-person instruction (SCUC on Campus) will begin Tuesday, September 8th for parents of students who choose that option. Parents who would like to continue remote instruction (SCUC @ Home) may continue that option.
Parents will be given additional time and flexibility during the first two weeks of the remote instruction window to decide what method of instruction best works for their children.
“This will give us more time to make our health and safety protocols for staff and students even stronger,” said Dr. Clark Ealy, Superintendent of Schools. “The extra time will also allow us to communicate better with families on how in-person and remote instruction will look.” Dr. Ealy recognized the district and campus leaders and teachers who have worked extremely hard during the month of July to have three weeks of on-line lessons ready to be delivered remotely.
