School Reopening Plan Information

Message from our Superintendent

Dear Tulare Joint Union High School Family, 

As we open the Tulare Joint Union High School District (TJUHSD) for the 2020–2021 school year, We have many challenges ahead of us. The district will have many new procedures, processes, and systems in place to ensure the safety of students, staff, and parents. The district is also ensuring that learning continues during the time of COVID-19. 

On July 17, 2020, Governor Newsom issued the following guidance on the reopening of California schools:

School must remain on distance learning until the criteria below has been met:

  • Tulare County is removed from the state's county monitoring list.
  • Tulare County is off the monitoring list for 14 consecutive days.

TJUHSD is required to follow the governor's executive orders and it relates to the opening of schools during COVID-19. Due to the governor's mandate, Tulare Joint Union High School District's school will begin the first day of school on August 13, 2020, utilizing the distance learning format. Please emphasize to your student how important it is for them to participate in the live instruction in order to keep up with the curriculum. Additionally, attendance is required and will be taken during the live instruction. 

The Tulare Joint Union High Schools will consider offering in-person instruction for all students as COVID-19 conditions improve in Tulare County, and it is no longer on the “watch list“. However, please understand that any in-person instruction may or may not be allowed for several weeks, months, or possibly throughout the entire school year if COVID-19 conditions do not improve, as determined by the state.

Much of the state guidance is rapidly changing, so please understand that any procedures, schedules, or processes may be modified as conditions change, or if there are new mandates by the state.

Please be assured that the Tulare Joint Union High School District is committed to providing the best education possible for your student.
