“Back to School” for GGUSD

THIS SIGN in front of Bolsa Grande High School could have event greater significance this fall when all GGUSD campuses are expected to open for five-day in-person instruction (Orange County Tribune photo).

Back to school will have a new meaning this fall for students, teachers, parents and others in the Garden Grove Unified School District.

Abby Broyles, public information officer of the district, announced Wednesday “that all GGUSD schools will return to five full days of in-person instruction in the 2021-2022 school year.”

New guidelines issued by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now set a “recommended but not required” distance of three feet between students.

In view of that, schools will consider expanding hours of in-person instruction for the remainder of the school year, as more pupils can be housed in a classroom.

All safety protocols (including masks, hand-washing, distancing, taking temperatures, etc.) will remain in place.

Additionally, according to the report from the district, “families who prefer a distance learning option can apply for [the district’s] Virtual Learning Academy.”

The GGUSD is a K-12 public school system serving most of Garden Grove and parts of Anaheim, Cypress, Fountain Valley, Santa Ana, Stanton and Westminster.
