​The Merced County Office of Education, in collaboration with the 20 local school districts and the Merced County Department of Public Health, has released a document of guiding principles and planning considerations schools and districts should consider when making plans for opening the 2020-2021 school year. The document has information on what families can expect when schools reopen, athletic guidelines, a distance learning framework, information on quarantine and contact tracing, along with information for parents about social emotional wellness and mental health. 

“We have worked closely with school district superintendents and the Merced County Department of Public Health to create this guidance document,” said Dr. Steve Tietjen, Merced County Superintendent of Schools. “Making sure our students and staff are safe is our top priority and these guidelines lay out parameters where schools can operate in safe ways and our students can learn.” ​ ​
