On March 13, 2020, schools closed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. By March 18, IUSD began Emergency Distance Learning. During this unprecedented time, teachers, staff, students and families worked together and supported each other with acts of kindness and messages of support, while keeping instruction, activities and school spirit going!

In September 2020, Orange County moved into the Red Tier, enabling schools to open for in-person instruction. IUSD's first day of in-person instruction for the 2020-21 school year was September 24, 2020. The District and our schools were prepared and excited to welcome students back to campus.
SPORTS, MUSIC, VOCAL, PLAYGROUNDS AND OTHER ACTIVITIES ARE BACK!
Reopening for in-person instruction was the first of many steps to bringing back a sense of normalcy. Since this time, each month, more and more progress has been made. Youth sports have resumed, music and vocal instruction are taking place on campuses, elementary playgrounds have reopened, schools are planning for graduation and promotion ceremonies, and more!
TEACHERS AND STAFF ARE RECEIVING VACCINES AND OUR NURSES CONTINUE TO SERVE OUR COMMUNITY
As of February 2021, teachers and staff started to receive COVID-19 vaccines as part of Phase 1B. Many of our IUSD school nurses are working beyond their normal hours to provide community COVID-19 support at vaccination clinics and/or through an after-hours helpline to provide IUSD families support.
