Ready, set, go! San Mateo County students have begun returning to school for the 2022-23 school year. After a summer dominated more by personal rest and recovery than prepping for COVID-19 response, students, families and staff are returning to school energized and excited to dive into a healing and positive year with their students.
Educators have accomplished the near impossible, and certainly the unimaginable, these past two years. They morphed from classroom-based instruction to distance learning practically overnight and with little warning. They procured and deployed laptops, organized and distributed school meals, provided COVID-19 testing and tests, held vaccination clinics, and kept their communities abreast of ever-evolving health protocols, all while trying to maintain some sense of normalcy for their students.
