Dear TLC Families, Students, and Staff,

This week the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) published their anticipated COVID-19 Public Health Guidance for K-12 Schools in California, 2021-22 School Year. (click on the link to read the entire document)

The guidelines state the following:

  • CDPH has eliminated the three feet social distancing, allowing for schools to operate at 100% capacity
  • COVID-19 vaccines are NOT required for students to attend public schools in California but are strongly recommended for students over the age of 12
  • Masks WILL BE REQUIRED indoors for all students, staff, and any visitors on school site facilities, regardless if an individual is vaccinated or not

TLC will continue to follow the guidance from the CDPH. We will continue to work diligently to provide updates and plans aligned to the CDPH guidelines as they are updated. The next masking update is expected to be released on November 1, 2021.

Our 2021-22 school opening plans remain unchanged. On August 2, 2021, we will welcome back all students for in-person learning, 5 days a week, full time, at 100% capacity, following the current safety guidelines. TLC is not offering a distance learning option for the 21-22 school year.

We look forward to welcoming all students and staff back to campus for the 21-22 school year. Thank you for your continued support of our Tracy Learning Center schools!

Estimadas familias, estudiantes y personal de TLC:

Esta semana el Departamento de Salud Pública de California (CDPH) publicó su anticipado COVID-19 Orientaciones de salud pública para escuelas en California K-12 , 2021-22 año escolar (haga clic en el enlace para leer el documento completo)

Las pautas establecen lo siguiente:

  • CDPH ha eliminado el distanciamiento social de tres pies, lo que permite que las escuelas funcionen al 100% de su capacidad
  • COVID-19 NO se requieren vacunas para que los estudiantes asistan a las escuelas públicas en California, pero se recomiendan encarecidamente para los estudiantes mayores de 12 años.

• SE REQUIEREN cubrebocas en el interior para todos los estudiantes, el personal y cualquier visitante en las instalaciones de la escuela, independientemente de si una persona está vacunada o no.

TLC continuará siguiendo la guía de CDPH. Continuaremos trabajando diligentemente para proporcionar actualizaciones y planes alineados con las pautas de CDPH a medida que se actualizan. Se espera que la próxima actualización de enmascaramiento se lance el 1 de noviembre de 2021.

Nuestros planes de apertura de escuela 2021-22 se mantienen sin cambios. El 2 de agosto de 2021, daremos la bienvenida a todos los estudiantes para el aprendizaje en persona, 5 días a la semana, tiempo completo, al 100% de su capacidad, siguiendo las pautas de seguridad actuales. TLC no ofrece una opción de aprendizaje a distancia para el año escolar 21-22.

Esperamos dar la bienvenida a todos los estudiantes y al personal al campus para el año escolar 21-22. ¡Gracias por su continuo apoyo a nuestras escuelas del Tracy Learning Center!
