SAN DIEGO, CA — Back-to-school planning has already begun in San Diego, with calendars available to help parents prepare for the first day in San Diego Unified School District.

The first day of school for most students in San Diego is Aug. 30.

Heading into the upcoming school year, some dates are subject to change as the coronavirus pandemic nears its year-and-a-half point. A mix of in-person, virtual and hybrid learning is still possible in San Diego, though Gov. Gavin Newsom recently reaffirmed his desire to see students back in the classroom so they can receive the social and emotional benefits that come with full-time, in-person learning.

Newsom urged residents — including teachers — to sign up for a COVID-19 vaccine if they have not done so already. The decisions of Californians who have balked at inoculation could affect businesses and in-person learning, he said.

The Golden State will require masks indoors in K-12 schools, child care facilities and other settings with children. Face coverings will be provided to students who do not bring them.

Like last year, these policies could change at any time or following guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The California Department of Public Health said it will assess COVID-19-related safety rules at schools on an ongoing basis and will determine by Nov. 1 whether mask requirements or guidelines should be updated.

Here is the list of dates to know for this school year:

San Diego Unified School District
