SDUSD Announces First Day of School Tuesday, August 22; Welcomes Students

SDUSD Welcome Back to School 2023-2024

Update 08-21-2023 from SDUSD Superintendent Lamont Jackson: It is with gratitude and excitement that I welcome our students to the first day of school on Tuesday, August 22.

I would like to thank everyone for their understanding during the uncertain weather conditions brought on by Hurricane Hilary that delayed the start of the 2023-24 school year by one day.

Our team has been busy evaluating our facilities since the storm arrived in San Diego County. Preliminary reports indicate minimal damage, and we are making any repairs that may be necessary. We look forward to opening schools to welcome all students on Tuesday, August 22. 

This new school year promises to be one of growth and accomplishment. San Diego Unified remains committed to the values of equity and belonging, to create conditions for all students to thrive.

I want to thank our students, parents, educators, and staff for bearing with us through this unexpected delay. We look forward with excitement for the start of the 2023-24 school year.
