In light of public health guidelines issued by Gov. Gavin Newsom, East Nicolaus Joint Union High School District will close beginning Tuesday, March 17.
School will remain closed at least through April 14th. Classes will resume on Wednesday April 15th.
We will continue to monitor this situation very closely, and we will update our community and school families should there be an extension to the closure period following our anticipated resumption of classes on April 15th.
This decision was not taken lightly. We have consulted carefully with local and state health officials throughout the past weeks. Sunday, Gov. Newsom's guidelines related to limiting public activities made closure the appropriate action. As of today the intent of all Sutter County Schools will be to close by tomorrow March 17th.
During this closure period, our district's school nutrition services department will attempt to coordinate meal delivery to various locations in our area. Details on where families can pick up meals for their school children will be sent later this afternoon.
We also are working to provide optional academic learning opportunities to help students keep learning during this closure period. Specific information on these academic learning opportunities will be announced on our website and by email.
