Public schools in San Leandro will open in the fall only for distance learning, San Leandro Unified School District said in a statement this week, putting the district in league with others across the region.

Calling the decision difficult, the district said it was based on rising Covid-19 infection rates, the district’s capacity to ensure the safety of its students and staff and the opinions of district families and staff as expressed in comments to the district and in survey responses.

About 9,067 students attend San Leandro public schools.

The district said it will continue to update information on its website about reopening at www.slusd.us.
