“The public health officers and county superintendents in six Bay Area counties have announced they will extend the suspension of in-class instruction through the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. This announcement comes as local public health officers continue to monitor and ensure that local orders to shelter in place with limited availability of COVID-19 testing are observed and followed. This decision means that SRVUSD schools will be closed, along with all other schools in the region, through the end of the 2019-2020 school year.  In addition, all special events, field trips and school-related activities including Graduation, Senior Balls, 8th Grade Promotions and other end-of-year activities have been canceled. ” – Statement from the SRVUSD on April 7, 2020

 

“Today, seven Bay Area county health officers, in collaboration with their six-county superintendents of schools announced a unified, regional decision to extend school closures through May 1, 2020, to slow the spread of COVID-19 to the maximum extent possible.  This decision means that SRVUSD schools will be closed, along with all other schools in the region, until May 1st. The SRVUSD still plans to observe our previously scheduled Spring Break from April 6 through April 10th. No remote learning will take place during Spring Break.” – Statement from the SRVUSD on March 25, 2020
