Monday, April 12 is a historic back-to-school day in San Diego County. Many children will be returning to school in person for the first time in a year.

As things stand now, all San Diego Unified schools will offer three hours of in-person instruction per day and students will be on campus either two or four days each week. Elementary students will be able to stay on campus for another two hours each day to work independently. Middle and high schoolers can stay for one extra hour.

Chula Vista Elementary School District, the state’s largest K-6 district, is expecting about 60% of its students to come back for in-person instruction starting April 12. Students will be split into morning and afternoon cohorts, with each cohort on campus for two and a half hours each day.

KPBS is working on stories about students returning to in-person schooling. Please share your thoughts and questions with us.
