We are making steady progress with our response teams as we prepare to support students and families in this new environment. District leaders have been actively participating in several conference calls with federal, state and county partners to voice parent concerns, raise employee matters and clarify the guidance received thus far on steps school districts should take to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We thank families and students for their patience and quick action in following federal, state and county directives.
Given the new Sacramento County guidelines, we would like to offer these resources to our families.
