Safe ReOpening

Urban Discovery Schools are committed to the safety and health of every student, educator, staff member and family. Our Safe ReOpening Plan has been developed in alignment with the best practices and the guidelines set forth by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the California Department of Public Health and the California Safe Schools for All plan. Below is a summary of some of the precautions we've put in place to safeguard our community:

  • Reduced capacity and socially distanced classroom seating
  • Newly installed air filtration systems that meet state ventilation requirements
  • Masks requirements for all onsite students, educators and staff 
  • Opportunity for all educators and staff to be fully vaccinated prior to reopening
  • Staggered class schedules to limit the total number of students onsite
  • Enhanced sanitization of high touch surfaces
  • Student health screening including temperature checks and enhanced infirmary facilities with on-site COVID-19 testing
  • A school-wide communication plan that details requirements in response to confirmed positive cases among onsite students or staff members
  • Additional hand sanitation stations
  • Resources and training to equip teachers with trauma-informed tools to support students navigating stress and anxiety
  • Safety reminders throughout both campuses

Learning Formats
In keeping with Urban Discovery's Core Value of serving as a catalyst of community, our Safe ReOpening Plan is designed to empower families with choices of multiple learning formats and the flexibility to opt for the format that best support their unique needs. Beginning March 22, Urban Discovery Schools will offer these three learning format choices:
  • ON CAMPUS LEARNING - Four days of on-campus classes with one day of virtual learning.
  • HYBRID LEARNING - Primarily virtual learning with customized on campus learning opportunities for additional support. 
  • VIRTUAL LEARNING - 100% virtual learning for your Urban Discovery Student.
 
Extended Learning Options
Extended Learning Options will be available at both campuses as of April 5, 2021 for families that need additional on campus student support. Priority enrollment in these programs will be given to essential workers. Contact Elo@urbansd.com for details and pricing.
