Jodi McClay, superintendent of Temecula Valley Unified School District, gave a brief update at the district’s Tuesday, Feb. 2, governing board meeting on the status of the district’s reopening plans and the potential for competitions to take place. The plans included at least one sport, and possibly more if Riverside County’s coronavirus case infections continue their downward trajectory.
While the county remains in the highest “purple” tier of the state’s reopening framework, McClay said that the direction infections are heading in is quite promising and may indicate schools could open up at some point this academic year after all.
The county’s adjusted case rate two weeks before Feb. 2 was about 95 per 100,000. The day of the meeting, it had dropped to 62.3.
