Governor Gavin Newsom recently made interesting suggestions regarding an earlier start to the next school year and our county health officials have relaxed some of the shetler-in-pace order, allowing activity that had been banned.
This is exciting and positive news, However, these announcements do not change our current status. School buildings and facilities, including athletic fields, remain closed. When we are able to reopen them safely, we will do so while following the guidelines from Contra Costa County public health officials. At this time, schools are slated to reopen in August, as scheduled. If anything changes, we will be sure to inform the community as soon as possible.
