VUSD Announces Full Distance Learning for Fall 2020

A Press Release from VUSD

VISALIA, CA – As per the Governor’s Executive Order today, all Visalia Unified School District schools will begin the fall semester through full distance learning.  We will continue our planning to offer two options to families (hybrid model or continued full distance learning) so that when it is feasible, we are ready for our students’ safe return to in-person learning.  Families will receive a letter next week with information on how to select a program option for when that time comes.

To help answer parent questions, Visalia Unified School District will host a virtual question and answer session regarding the 2020-21 school reopening on Tuesday, July 21, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

A panel of VUSD staff members will answer questions from parents/guardians, students, and community members regarding the 2020-21 reopening of schools.

To watch the panel answer questions, join the live stream on YouTube at or Zoom at

Only those questions submitted in advance will be answered if time allows.  Parents/guardians, students, and community members may submit their questions online on Monday, July 20, from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. using the following link:

  1. These are truly scary times and it looks like it’s going to be for quite some time until a doable vaccination is created to combat the side effects of this virus. A virus I might add that we are still finding out daily about some of its horrific side effects let alone of its deadliness. Ignoring the virus isn’t going to mitigate the danger of it. Denying the realness of it by simply claiming it is a liberal hoax isn’t going to mitigate the danger of it. Downplaying and saying that it is only just another flu bug isn’t going to mitigate the danger of it. For many the symptoms, thank God, are not even felt, to being mild, or a bad case of the flu BUT for those whose experiences has been far more devastating or even deadly should not be ignored or denied. There but for the Grace of God go any one of us as we continue to be at high risk and it is especially frightening for our own AND our children’s health, welfare and safety. Wear a face mask, practice social distancing, and wash hands frequently. Our schools can educate via online classes and parents/caretakers MUST make sure that their children attend online classes each school day. Comcast, AT&T, and all the other internet providers should work together to make sure that no child/student is left behind and provide free internet services to school districts (who will provide each and every student, young or old with laptops). Local PBS TV stations can provide free channels for school classrooms as well. Don’t know how all this works out but no one should leave any stone un-turned. This virus is going to take a long time to conquer so our leaders, corporations, and school districts need to think outside of the box to keep education in the forefront.
