Dear Students, Families and Staff,

Now that Sacramento County has given permission for schools to reopen should schools and districts choose to do so, Elk Grove Unified district and school staff are working closely with labor partners and public health to update the previously drafted transition back to school plan.  Please stay tuned for more information and updates in the coming days. In the meantime, students will continue with full distance learning. 


  • Planning of further in-person specialized support services for small cohorts;
  • An outstanding average daily attendance of 96.6% thanks to student participation, parent support, engaging instruction and student support;
  • Smooth transition to second quarter for secondary school students.
  • Successful rollout of After School Education and Safety (ASES) program at 17 elementary schools to provide safety and supervision of academic and literacy support, and safe, constructive alternatives for students most vulnerable to learning loss.
