Return to Urban - Fall 2020

Urban will start the school year virtually and remain in distance learning through at least the end of September. At that point, should the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH) and the State of California allow an in-person return, we will initiate our "4-10" hybrid model 14 days later, allowing the community time to prepare for the transition.

We will continue to update information on this page as circumstances change. We appreciate your patience as we all adapt to the challenges presented by this global health crisis.

Following are questions related to both Virtual Urban – our current status – and Hybrid Urban, for when such a transition is possible.

Virtual Urban - Fall Term Start

New information about Virtual Urban will be added to this page periodically throughout the fall. Families should review the  addendum to our Student/Family Handbook with more information about Virtual and Hybrid Urban, accessible via the Parent Portal and on Schoology for students.

Hybrid Urban

Urban School has developed a hybrid plan that combines virtual and in-person school. Based on favorable conditions as set forth by the San Francisco Department of Public Health and the State of California Department of Public Health, the school will enact its Hybrid Urban plan. Families will be notified at least two weeks in advance of that possibility. Preliminary information about the plan may be found below.
