Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:

March 13, 2020
 
Dear Parent/Guardian,

First and foremost, I appreciate your support during this challenging time. As the parent of three children, I certainly empathize with the stress, fear, and inquiry that this time period has caused for many parents/guardians.

At an Emergency Meeting of the Board of Trustees this afternoon, the Board approved a resolution through an emergency measure, which grants me, as the Superintendent, the authority to “take all appropriate action to respond to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.”

With the authorization allowing school districts to do so, and following today’s recommendation from the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) that all schools in Los Angeles County close and/or be dismissed for a minimum of two weeks due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), I have decided to dismiss (“pupil free”) schools effective immediately, followed by all schools being closed through Spring Break (5 weeks).

Beginning Monday, March 16, and through the regularly scheduled Spring Break (Sunday, April 19) all schools will be dismissed and/or closed to students.

March 16 – March 18 School Dismissal (“Pupil Free”/no students)
March 19 – April 9 School CLOSURE (no students/no staff)
April 10 – April 17 Spring Break Recess
April 20 School Resumes

Additionally, all extra-curricular activities and athletics have been postponed.

We continue to prioritize the health and wellness of students and staff as our highest concern. Given the advisement of Public Health, medical experts, and other state and county entities, we have decided to allow an appropriate amount of time for students, staff, and families to follow advice of medical practitioners and experts, practice healthy habits, and lessen opportunities for the spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

I recognize that my decision will impact everyone differently. Our District will be working with staff to lessen the academic gap that typically occurs over extended recesses from school. Next week, parents and students will be notified of curricular resources that can be utilized during the school closure.

Furthermore, next week, all schools will provide additional information, answer questions, and discuss next steps.

While this is an extremely difficult decision, I also am confident that it was made with the best interest of our staff and students in mind.

敬爱的家长/监护人,

首先,感谢您在此充满挑战的时刻给我们的支持。许多父母/监护人感受的压力,恐惧和一直想探询,身为三个孩子的我当然也感同身受。

 

今天下午在董事会的紧急会议上,董事会通过紧急措施批准了一项决议,该决议授予总监我  “采取一切适当措施应对正在全球流行的新型冠状病毒(COVID-19)的权力” 。

 

获得授权,学区才能做出决定。 遵循今天洛杉矶县教育局(LACOE)的建议;加上由于新型冠状病毒,洛杉矶县的所有学校都必须关闭和/或停课至少两周( COVID-19; 我决定学校立即停课(“学生不上课”),接着所有学校在春假期间也会关闭5周)。

 

316日星期一开始,直到正常的春假期间(419日星期日),所有学校都将停课和/或学生不上课。

 

316-318日学校停课(“学生不上课 /无学生)

319- 49日学校关闭(无学生/无工作人员)

410- 417日春假

420- 学校恢复上课

 

此外,所有课外和体育活动都已延期。

我们继续将学生和教职员的健康和福祉作为我们的首要任务。鉴于公共卫生,医学专家以及其他州和县机构的建议,我们决定让学生,教职员和家庭有适当的时间遵循医生和专家的建议,练习健康的习惯以减少新型冠状病毒(COVID-19)传播的机会。

 

我知道我的决定对每个人的影响不会相同。我们学区将与教职员合作,以减少因学校放假而造成的学业差距。下周,我们会通知家长和学生在学校关闭期间可以利用的课程资源。

 

此外,所有学校在下星期将提供更多信息,回答问题并讨论下一步。

尽管这是一个非常困难的决定,但我也深信,这样做才是为我们全体员工和学生着想。

 

总监
