Return to schools plan from Our Executive Director

Updated July 1, 2020

Dear Second Start Families and Caregivers, 

The Santa Clara County Office of Education , Monterey County Office of Education and the Nevada Department of Education have released statements and guidelines for returning to campus in the 2020-2021 school year. We have written plans, procedures and protocols that will be implemented so that our students may return to campus in the fall, however these plans are subject to change as we continue to closely monitor these education departments as well as directives from state and local health departments to ensure that our plans are in compliance with these agencies.

Although we are making every effort to ensure a safe and hazard free school environment for return in August, we understand that our plans must also be adaptable for students who are unable to attend in person, so distance learning may be continued for students who need to stay home for reasons relating to Coronavirus, with prior approval from the Principal. For questions about Pine Hill School and Pine Hill South contact gregz@secondstart.org and for Newton Northern Nevada contact rebeccaj@secondstart.org.  

Be safe and well,

Tara Bevington

Executive Director
