Safe Reopening 2020-2021

Burlingame School District continues to plan, prepare for, and implement its instructional programs and school operations in response to conditions and requirements emanating from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In line with state and county public health guidelines, BSD is moving towards safely reopening our school campuses to resume on-site, in-person teaching, and learning. 

BSD has developed its Return to School Procedures plan (last updated December 5, 2020) for safely reopening our school sites and beginning to return students.

The review of the BSD plan for the return of students in grades TK-8 to campus for in-person instruction has been completed by the San Mateo County Office of Education and San Mateo County Health and has been posted on their SMCOE website (11/13/20).
