Return to School - Technology
With our new school-day model, students who are unable to come to campus must be able to participate in live classroom instruction in a meaningful way. Jesuit Sacramento anticipates that students will need this option with greater frequency. It will serve students that may need to stay home if symptomatic, if they have been exposed, if they test positive for COVID-19, or for any other reason a student should not attend class on campus.
Jesuit Sacramento understands the uncertainty of doing a weekly screening and the many details this program involves, along with the strict virus mitigation practices while on campus, mean that some families will choose to remain in distance learning. We respect and understand this decision. We also know that distance learning for some students and their families has been very difficult and a return to campus, even for two days a week, will be a major benefit academically and for their overall wellness. As we work through these logistics and experience our phased return to school, we realize some families may choose to return to distance learning and others may decide later to attend in person. Students may exercise this freedom if they have completed their initial screening and training.
The process of teaching young men about the importance of their online presence requires a strong partnership between students, parents, and Jesuit High School. As a representative of Jesuit High School, all students must be diligent in maintaining a positive online identity. We would like to take a moment to share some resources with you that have been shared with your son to help you in guiding him to maintain a positive online identity.

Distance learning protocols will be in effect for the duration of any period of extended campus closure, during which no on-campus instruction will be taking place.
Is Jesuit Sacramento now going to start the school year with all classes online?
On July 31, Jesuit Sacramento announced that due to the current state of the coronavirus in Sacramento County and the requirements imposed by state officials, Jesuit cannot reasonably plan for in-person learning by the start of the school year. Therefore, Jesuit Sacramento will temporarily begin the fall semester in Distance Learning and is ready to make a return to on-campus in-person instruction when Sacramento County is off the state’s COVID monitoring list.
