District Logistical Response to Coronavirus:

     

     The Mount Diablo Unified School District announced a closure of its schools, effective March 17, 2020, with an expected duration through April 2, 2020. Spring Break is from April 3, 2020 to April 10, 2020. At this time, school is expected to resume on April 13, 2020.

 

     Our district will continue in its provision of some services, including food services (breakfast and lunch) at the following locations: Cambridge, Meadow Homes, Ygnacio Valley High School, College Park High School, El Dorado Middle School, River View Middle School, Foothill Middle School, and Mt. Diablo High School. The exact times will be provided on the District web page.

 

     Educational Learning Opportunities: We are committed to proceeding with the most equitable approaches to instruction available to the students we serve, which will involve both online resources and traditional resources. Our teaches will be working together at their school sites on Monday to develop and create some resources for students, and we will then work to provide access to these materials through our web pages.

 

     Helpful resources: 

     All staff are expected to continue work as scheduled unless otherwise notified. While we continue to be open to the public, we may need to curtail some activities and appointment with community members during the school closure days.

 

    We will continue to update our website and advise community members and employees of development with the coronavirus as developments occur.
