With the Governor’s declared state of emergency and closure of all public schools until the end of the school year, we will continue to take proactive steps in assisting our school families and students during this time.
We have launched our efforts related to the continuity of operations: employee work expectations, student learning at home, food service opportunities at schools, etc. during the school closure. In the meantime, we will continue to assess this ever-changing situation and communicate any additional decisions that may be necessary as quickly as possible to ensure you are fully informed. We ask for your patience as we prioritize immediate needs and seek large-scale solutions that impact our students, employees, families, and communities.
