San Diego, CA–Out of an abundance of caution, San Diego Unified School District is delaying the first day of school to Tuesday based on the latest storm-related information from local officials.
“I remain hopeful that the storm will continue to decrease in its intensity as it moves through our region. However, given the uncertainty of the weather and our need to thoroughly assess any impacts to our facilities, all schools will be closed to students on Monday, August 21,” Superintendent Dr. Lamont Jackson said. “The first day of school brings joy and excitement for students, families, and staff. I thank our entire community for their understanding and for our collective desire to have the best first day of school possible for our students, staff, and families.”
San Diego Unified will continue to monitor the storm and its impact on the region. Visit sandiegounified.org for the latest information about the start of the 2023-24 school year.
“As eager as we are to welcome students and staff back to school, safety must come first,” said Board of Education President Sabrina Bazo. “I would like to thank our entire San Diego Unified community for their understanding as we work through this unprecedented weather event. To the staff who are working to keep our schools, students, and employees safe, I thank you.”
