The Newport-Mesa Unified School District Board of Education approved transitioning secondary schools (grades 7-12) to full day in-person instruction four days and maintain one day of distance learning per week, starting the week of April 26, 2021. 

This does not apply to Cloud Campus, which is a 100% virtual learning school, and Back Bay/Monte Vista High Schools, which are already serving students full days in their current model.


  • Schools will maintain their current schedule, including at-home learning 

  • Cohorts A and B will be combined and required to attend in-person 4-days a week, with distance learning 1-day a week

  • Continue to adhere to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) guidelines, which include:

    • Face coverings 

    • Optimized ventilation

    • HEPA air cleaners

    • Space between seating and desks in classrooms will be maximized and aligned to the current CDPH guidance.

With spring recess upon us, I want to remind everyone to please continue to do their part in following all COVID-19 precautions. We need everyone to continue to do all they can to mitigate the spread.
