Distance/Online Learning & School Closure Update

Spring Break was very different this year as compared to other years, but we hope you had an opportunity to find some joy and rest. As our Spring Break comes to an end this Friday, March 27, I wanted to provide you some important information about school closures and our transition to online/distance learning. Today, the Monterey County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Deneen Guss and county district superintendents decided that all schools within Monterey County will be closed until at least May 4th.
