    September 29, 2020

    South Bend School District received guidance from the Pacific County Health Department, Dr. Steven Krager, that Pacific County Schools can begin a phased reopening for face-to-face instruction.  

    South Bend Jr. Sr. High School will reopen under a hybrid model for students grades 7-12 on Monday, October 12, 2020.

    Mike Morris Elementary School reopened to grades K-6 on Monday, September 28.  South Bend Early Learning will be opening Monday, October 5.
    School staff are now putting final details together for the safe return of 7-12 students.  We will be operating under a hybrid model, where Group A students will attend school on Mondays and Tuesdays.  Group B students will attend school on Thursdays and Fridays.  Wednesday will be a remote learning day.  The school day (Mon/Tues/Thu/Fri) will be from 8:30 am to 2:20 pm, with doors opening at 8:00 am.  Families with siblings in both elementary and jr. sr. high school will be grouped together, as will siblings in preschool.
    Parents and students should remember that face coverings will be required for all students and staff members.  Students will be distanced according to health department guidelines and all other safety measures will be adhered to.  In addition, parents will be required to submit a daily health attestation for students attending in-person school.  This will be done via text message and/or email each morning.  Please contact the school office for more information. 
    Parents with questions should contact the school office at 360-875-6041.  School principal Jason Nelson can also be reached at: jnelson@southbendschools.org.
    All of us at South Bend Schools are excited for the return of our students!  We will be releasing more information as we continue to plan.  Thank you for your patience and please let us know if you have questions or concerns.
