San Juan Unified schools will return to a traditional five-day per week, full-time schedule for in-person learning with the option for families to also choose independent study (TK-12) or homeschool (TK-8) if they prefer. 

It is San Juan Unified’s goal to ensure that in-person learning continues for our students this year without disruption. Ensuring the health and safety of each of our students and our staff members will be essential to that goal, which is why we have updated our safety plans to reflect the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, California Department of Public Health and Sacramento County Public Health. 

You can find our full updated district COVID-19 safety plan at It covers topics including face coverings, physical distancing, events, and how we respond in case of a COVID-19 case or exposure. 

In alignment with the current health order from Sacramento County Public Health and requirements of the California Department of Public Health, everyone, including students, staff members and guests, is required to wear an appropriate face covering when indoors at a school or other district facility.

Parents/guardians must complete a daily symptom screening of their student and staff members must complete a daily self-screening for symptoms prior to the start of each school day. To help make sure that learning can continue for everyone without interruption, it is important that anyone with symptoms or who is not feeling well stay home until they are cleared to return. 

Given the high rates of COVID-19 transmission in Sacramento County right now, San Juan Unified schools are following the recommended state and county guidelines to limit events to those that are essential, implement additional safety measures for events that are held and limit guests on campuses at this time. District staff will continue to monitor conditions with local health officials to determine when these safety precautions can be eased.
