Turlock Unified offers virtual instruction for students in quarantine

in News

Turlock Unified School District has decided to provide access to instruction when a secondary student in grades 7-12 is placed on quarantine (not allowed to physically attend school due to a COVID-19 related exposure or illness). Teachers will be opening their classrooms virtually through the use of cameras and online learning platforms, including Google Classroom.

“TUSD teachers and staff are working to support all students so they graduate college and career ready. Use of digital resources during quarantine periods is a further opportunity to engage students in learning. All students will be required to complete assignments and meet expectations for satisfactory progress to receive credit toward promotion or graduation,” said Chief Communications Coordinator Marie Russell.

Teachers will send Zoom links to students placed in quarantine to provide access to view the classroom instruction. There are some rules that students need to follow if they are going to utilize this. Students who choose to join a class session must do so within the first 5 minutes of the class period to ensure instruction starts in a timely manner and is not interrupted and access to each class session will be for a minimum of 30 minutes.
