Dear Jaguar Families,


The reopening of school is becoming more of a reality as the COVID-19 rates continue to decline and we prepare for a possible February reopening. Last Friday, Moraga School District submitted our COVID-19 Safety Plan (CSP) to the Contra Costa Health Services and Contra Costa County Office of Education. Today we will submit the plan to the state. Based on the current Governor’s plan, we will be able to open 6th grade once the county numbers are below 25/100,000 cases for 5 consecutive days.  7th and 8th grade will be able to open once the county is in the red tier for 5 consecutive days.


JM Asynchronous Preparation for Reopening Days

On Friday, February 5th and Monday, February 8th, students will be completing most of their work asynchronously in order for teachers to prepare for the opening of school.  


  1. Synchronous (live on Zoom) class meetings will be held according to the following schedule: 
  2. Attendance will be taken during class meetings 
  3.  After class meetings, students will be assigned asynchronous work for the remainder of the instructional day
