Saddle Mountain Safe Return to Schools Plan

Back-to-School Plan - 2020–2021 School Year

Using guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC, published May 19, 2020), state and county health officials, and parental survey data, Saddle Mountain Unified School District has prepared a comprehensive plan to mitigate risk of exposure to COVID-19 in our schools. This contains detailed information about Saddle Mountain's safety protocols for the 2020–21 school year. For areas where the CDC has provided specific guidance for schools, we have included that guidance as a reference, for your convenience, so that you may see how Saddle Mountain's plans align with CDC recommendations. 

Our plan includes guidance in the following areas:

  • Bus Safety
