We are excited to welcome our Padres back to campus for in-person learning.

In accordance with San Mateo County Health Department mandates and guidelines, we are committed to a return-to-campus plan that prioritizes the health and safety of everyone in our Serra community. It’s imperative that we all work collaboratively and take personal responsibility for adherence to the policies and procedures we’ve set forth. This will allow us to maintain the spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical formation of our students through our thoughtfully reimagined curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities during this life-altering COVID-19 crisis.
This microsite will serve as a consolidated resource for information regarding our return-to-campus plans. 
Please understand that this information is subject to change based on local conditions and public health orders. We also will be continually assessing our plan and may make adjustments to improve the on-campus experience for our students, faculty and staff.

Ensuring Academic Excellence

Maintaining the quality of education that Serra has always offered -- a strong, college preparatory academic curriculum -- is core to our mission and will not be compromised. To this end, Serra has developed three schedules for the 2020-2021 school year: the 100% Distance Learning Schedule, the Hybrid AB Schedule and the Traditional AB Block Schedule. This will allow us to balance the health and safety needs of the students and faculty with an ability to move seamlessly from one schedule to another as local conditions require, with a minimum of disruption to student learning and teacher readiness.

With permission from San Mateo County Health, Serra will transition to the Hybrid AB Schedule beginning on November 9, 2020, taking an incremental, phased approach to returning students to on-campus learning. It will occur over a six-week period and conclude at the end of the first semester. Detailed schedules for the remainder of semester one and the beginning of semester two are included in Serra’s Return to School Plan.

 


Serra's Roadmap to Reopening



Pandemic Recovery Framework for Schools 

The San Mateo County Coalition for Safe Schools and Communities released its Pandemic Recovery Framework, which provides school leaders with the health and education guidance needed to develop specific plans for the safe reopening of school campuses. Serra will be using these guidelines for school and planning operations for the 2020-21 academic year. Our planning is ongoing and will continue with the release of this information.
