Santa Barbara Unified elementary schools prepare for reopening

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — Santa Barbara County has hit its COVID-19 threshold to allow in-person learning for elementary school children.

Santa Barbara County Public Health officials said the county needed to be below 25 per 100,000 people testing positive for COVID-19. The county is currently at 16.9.

Now principals around the district, including Roosevelt Elementary School and Adams Elementary School, are preparing for in-person learning as soon as next week. 

Many schools across the district have few students in-person with remote learning.

Roosevelt Elementary School principal Valerie Galindo said she is excited to hear the loud pattering of her students in the halls.
