San Bernardino schools adopt virtual classes
SAN BERNARDINO – (INT) – Monday brought the opening of another school year in the San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD). The 2019-20 school year was abbreviated because of the COVID-19 virus.

With the pandemic shows no sign of abating, education has taken on a whole new experience.

SBCUSD is beginning the school year with virtual distance learning and students will be expected to participate in classes every day. Teachers will be working from home taking attendance and grading both classwork and homework. Distance learning will be a factor in each student’s final grade for the year.

Parents who have not already been contacted about the specific hours of their child’s distance learning class should contact their child’s school directly.

The District has also set up an Enrollment Hotline, (909) 891-1010, specifically to address questions about online student enrollment.

Families can check their child’s class schedule via the Aeries platform. Parents are strongly encouraged to create an Aeries Parent Portal account by visiting and selecting Aeries Parent/Student Portal under Parent Resources. The Parent Portal allows parents and guardians to keep track of student attendance and academic progress.

New SBCUSD students who do not have an electronic device should contact their school directly.

SBCUSD will continue to provide free breakfast and lunch to every student during the school year as part of the Grab and Go Meal program.
