Return to School Plan & COVID-19 Resources
The San Carlos 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, SCSD is moving towards safely reopening our school campuses to resume on-site, in-person teaching, and learning.
SCSD has developed its Return to School Procedures plan (last updated January 13, 2021) for safely reopening our school sites and beginning to return students.

- FeverFree Daily Health Screening App - In order to be prepared for the time when students may return to campus (either for support services, assessments or for more classroom-based learning), we are implementing a daily health screening tool called FeverFree. All students or staff members who are coming to a school or the district office need to complete the health screening at home, prior to arriving on campus. Students who have not completed this health screening prior to coming to school will be sent home. You will receive an invitation to join the FeverFree platform before your child returns to school.
