School Closure Extended Through June 11, 2020

On April 1, 2020, Governor Newsom and Orange County Department of Education Superintendent Mijares recommended keeping schools closed to students for the remainder of the school year due to safety concerns related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). In response to these statements, and in consensus with our Board of Trustees, it was determined that in order to stay safe we will extend the closure of our schools for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. Although school campuses will be closed to the public, At-Home Learning Plans, online instruction and student work packets will continue to be provided through the last day of school, June 11, 2020. Also note that all school campuses and Online and At Home Learning will be closed for our scheduled Spring Break, April 10-17, 2020.
