Dear American Union Elementary Families,

Welcome to the Spring Semester! As you may already be aware, it has been announced that the reopening of our schools is not an option at this time as California continues to battle the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The American Union Elementary School campus will remain in distance learning format. Please read below for specific information as it pertains to specific grade levels. As a reminder, parents/guardians have the option to continue with the distance learning instructional model or the blended learning instructional model. Thank you for being a valued partner in navigating the challenges associated with COVID-19. Please reach out to me if you have any questions or input.

Updated- Blended Learning (on-line/on-campus) Spring Semester:

  • Grades PS-2- The week of February 8, 2021.
  • Grades 3-6- The week of February 15, 2021. 
  • Grades 7-8- To be determined pending direction from state and local health departments.

Distance Learning Expectations:  Every child will continue to be provided with grade-level appropriate activities so that they can continue to learn important academic skills while schools are in distance learning format.  Instruction will be delivered through Seesaw for grades TK-2, google classroom for grades 3-8 and google meet grades TK-8. In the event that you don’t have access to the internet, curriculum will be provided in the form of packets.  It is a WUSD/AU expectation to have your child submit their work through google classroom and/or on designated packet collection dates as all assignments will be graded.  Daily attendance will be required.  We value your input.  If you have any questions or comments about the school’s distance learning plan, please call AU at (559) 495-5651.    

Community Resources for Families: If you or someone you know is in need of community resources such as food, housing, or a list of mental health care providers, please visit the Community Resource link on our website at http://www.washingtonunified.org/community-resources/

AU Safety/Health Protocols:  As you visit campus for any reason, please complete the following:

  • Covid-19 visitor survey before arriving on campus.

  • Practice social distancing while on campus.
  • Temperature check upon arrival.
