The return to school is always an eventful experience. At Vacaville Unified School District, which resumes classes Thursday, this is more true than ever.
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, Vacaville schools have been largely closed for in-person learning, with educators shifting to a virtual format through sites like Zoom. The district adopted a hybrid schedule starting in March, and now with eased statewide restrictions, students will be returning to campus full time for in-person learning, with modifications mostly centered around the wearing of masks indoors.
“It’s really been very positive because it’s so much more like a regular year than we did last year,” Ed Santopadre, associate superintendent of educational services, said.
