Lucerne Valley USD Resumes Learning Models for 2021

The Lucerne Valley Unified School District on Monday reopened following an extended winter break with the same learning models that were in place prior to the break.
Lucerne Valley school learning models are hybrid with virtual distance learning models at Lucerne Valley Elementary School, and Virtual Distance Learning and cohorts at the Middle/High School and our Virtual Academy for all grades.
“Under the current criteria from the state we are unable to move forward to further reopening and will remain on our current models,” LVUSD Superintendent Peter Livingston said. “We are planning on what further reopening would look like as things change, vaccines roll out and numbers go down in the state. Currently though there are no plans for immediate change with any of the models we have been providing based upon the criteria from the state.”
The district will continue to follow the guidelines previously put out by the state. Currently reopening at Middle/High Schools cannot occur until San Bernardino County moves out of “purple” category, he added.
“There are middle and high schools open across the state that had reopened when their Counties were out of purple and can remain reopen. However we cannot move forward until County numbers come down.”
Mr. Livingston said the school district is looking at additional options to provide school district employees with vaccines sooner than early February — and possibly later this month — as indicated by the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health.
“The county stated that vaccines will be available through CVS and primary care physicians,” he said. “Conversations are being had about having testing clinics at schools or regional locations, too. We are working on trying to have other options available for our employees.”
