Dear SCUSD families and community, 

It’s official! Santa Clara County will transition to the Orange Tier tomorrow, Wednesday, March 24 and we will begin our two-week phased reopening for in-person students on Monday, March 29.

We are on track with completing our final actions for reopening and you can follow along on our Countdown to Reopening Checklist Dashboard. Additionally, District Office staff will be on campuses during the phase-in period to lend extra support to our schools.

What’s Next?

You will receive more information and direction from your school principal tomorrow, Wednesday, March 24. If your child is returning to campus, review the updated return charts below to help you anticipate and prepare for your return date.
