  • Potential for Inclement Weather -- Thursday, January 20th

    District leadership is closely monitoring the potential for inclement weather tomorrow morning. For our K-8 students, tomorrow is scheduled for a half day of school/early release so that we can hold parent-teacher conferences.  These conferences have already been rescheduled once and we would like to keep them on as scheduled tomorrow so that parents have the opportunity to meet with teachers about their child’s progress. Therefore, the following plan will be in place tomorrow should the weather in the morning not cooperate. READ MORE

  • State Guidance -- Isolation & Quarantine -- 1/10/22

    We are beginning to receive questions regarding today's statewide changes to the isolation and quarantine rules for individuals who are CoVid positive or exposed to someone who has been diagnosed with CoVid. The changes that went into effect today were NOT applicable to schools, only to the general population. More about that can be found on the Orange County DOH website. That said, just over an hour ago, the State Department of Health did send school districts a letter indicating that new school specific guidance would be forthcoming; it also highlighted some anticipated shifts. Tomorrow afternoon, the Superintendents of Orange County will be meeting with Dr. Gelman (Orange County's Health Commissioner) to discuss the new rules. Once I have a better understanding, I will discuss the shifts with our administrative team and school nurses. They are already reviewing the language in anticipation of our internal discussions.
