In the letter, Superintendent Gonzalo Salazar said the district has seen many students struggle both emotionally and academically during the pandemic.

“It is clear that the majority of our students would benefit from face-to-face instruction,” states Salazar in the letter. “This experience has validated the fact that teachers play a critical role in the academic progress of our students and nothing can replace the quality of the exchanges that occur between a teacher and a student in face-to-face interaction.”
