SRVUSD Closes Schools Effective 3/16 - 4/10/2020
Posted 3/13/20

 

In light of escalating conditions surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), the District has made the decision to postpone attendance at all schools in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District beginning on Monday, March 16, 2020, through at least Friday, April 10, 2020. This period of time includes our already calendared Spring Break.

 

Over the next few days, district administration will evaluate future plans and potential flexible learning opportunities. We will communicate details next week via email.  We are currently waiting on the State of California to give guidance to Districts about potential modifications to the school year and guidance regarding independent academic assignments, assessments and other teaching and learning topics.

  

For the students in our community who qualify for the Federal Lunch Program, we plan to have two school sites (John Baldwin Elementary and Walt Disney Elementary) staffed to serve lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. beginning on Monday, March 16th. The menu will be limited and all items will be prepackaged. 

 

Official District communications will be your primary source of information during the closure. In addition to being emailed, these communications will also be posted on the SRVUSD website and the official District Facebook page. Please read each communication so that you stay informed. If you are not receiving District communications and want to check the status of your email in our system, please contact communications@srvusd.net and we will help you. 

 

We are confident that our decision to dismiss schools will support our school community. This unprecedented decision is made after consultation with the Contra Costa County Office of Education, the County Department of Public Health and other school districts throughout our County.  We know you have a lot of questions and we are working diligently to put all the pieces together so that we can communicate with you about what to expect going forward. 

 

The health and well-being of our staff and students is the single most important thing that we, as a District, are entrusted to protect, and we will continue to take that duty seriously for the duration of this unprecedented and unique health event.
