March 27 Closure Update: End of Week 2; Preparing for an Extended Closure

En Español

March 27, 2020
Dear WCCUSD Families,

Schools have now been closed for two weeks. I’m sure there are times it seems longer as we try to cope with the shelter in place and stay at home orders due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The next few weeks will be challenging as the public health experts tell us to prepare for a rise in the number of cases. Please take care of yourselves and your families during this time by following the guidance that has been issued by the health experts.

I also want to thank you for staying with us and for your feedback as we transition to an extended period of school closures. 

Yesterday, I mentioned that the Board of Education will hold a meeting on Wednesday, April 1. This meeting will be virtual and meet the standards set in the Governor's Emergency Order issued on March 12, 2020. Members of the public can access the meeting via Zoom or by telephone. Directions to access the meeting are available on the agenda.

District staff continue to work closely with the employee unions to finalize work expectations during the school closures due to the shelter in place and stay at home orders. More information will be shared with you early next week. We also hope to provide information about report cards at that time.

Student meal pick up will continue from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 17 locations in the District. Thank you to our community partners who helped us expand the locations. To date, we have distributed nearly 90,000 meals to children. If you know of a family in need of student meals please share the 17 locations with them.

For all the news about school closures, please check the District’s web page at You can also receive information through our social media platforms. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Lastly, if you are not receiving updates for the District, make sure we have your correct contact information by completing this Google Form.

Thank you again and stay safe.
