3/31/2020 UPDATE: School Facilities to Remain Closed Through the End of the School Year
Dear CUSD Families and Staff:
I am writing to provide you with an update on the closure of our school facilities in Carmel Unified School District. In concert with other public and charter school districts in Monterey County, we are taking a “safety first approach” due to the ongoing needs of social distancing during this COVID-19 pandemic. With that in mind, our school facilities will remain closed through the end of the school year.
As our county superintendent states, “To be clear, the 2019-2020 school year is not over, it has just transitioned from classroom instruction into distance learning which will take place in different ways throughout the county.” Please see attached two letters that speak to this decision. The first is from our California State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond. The second is the letter from Dr. Deneen Guss, our Monterey County Superintendent of Schools.
Please know that all of our employees are working together on this transition as we continue to strengthen distance learning programs and opportunities for all of our students. We will continue to share more news with you as decisions are made about certain events and end-of-the-year protocols.
We appreciate your patience as we face this unprecedented set of challenges. We pledge to do our best to continue providing your children with valuable instructional experiences as we all work through this together.
Barb Dill-Varga, Ed.D.
