Campuses in the Garden Grove Unified School District will be re-opening to “hybrid” in-person instruction, with the first tier return coming on Wednesday, Oct. 28.
A second tier will open on Thursday, Nov. 12, with the third tier on Tuesday, Dec. 1. The schools that remain are planned to be reopened in January, conditional on their coronavirus rates.
A “hybrid” system typically means a mixture of in-person teaching at the school campus along with “distance learning” via computer or other internet-connected device.
According to the GGUSD, the first phase with Tier One will include:
Barker, Bryant, Eisenhower, Enders, Garden Park, Marshall, Monroe, Patton and Sunnyside elementary schools, Mark Twain Special Education Center, Bell and Walton intermediate schools, Hare (Continuation) High School and Jordan Adult Transition Program.
The schools in Phase Two through Tier Two campuses were not revealed, but the district promised the list of those would “be announced well in advance of those dates.”
The GGUSD is the third-largest public school system in Orange County and serves most of Garden Grove as well as parts of Anaheim, Cypress, Fountain Valley, Santa Ana, Stanton, and Westminster.
