Crockett Refinery Fire Update

En Español

Good afternoon community,

We are writing to inform you about the oil refinery fire in Crockett. Contra Costa County authorities have issued a shelter-in-place for the cities of Crockett, Rodeo and a small portion of Hercules.

As a precaution, we are moving all after school programs and athletic events, practices and extra curricular activities indoors for schools in Hercules. Families/parents are more than welcome to pick up their children early if they choose. 

We do not believe the refinery fire will impact any other schools, but we are monitoring the situation and will provide updates as we receive them.

Thank you and have a good evening.

Marcus Walton
