COVID-19 Information

As you may know, Kern County has begun the process of moving into the red tier of the State's reopening plan. According to local health officials, while we are not officially in the red tier yet, Kern will be eligible next Tuesday, October 13th, pending the assessment results on October 12th. Once in the red tier for two weeks, our campus can reopen! If all goes according to plan, we are looking at a reopening date of October 27th.

Distance Learning

While our physical campus is closed, we do have an extensive plan to continue our high-quality education through online class instruction, thanks, in part, to our 1:1: iPad technology. Our teachers will use the ZOOM app to teach lessons virtually and all class materials will be uploaded on iTunes U. Each student’s iPad will become their virtual classroom and we will continue to follow the regular block schedule.
