Coronavirus Information

SRVUSD in-class instruction suspended through the remainder of the 2019-20 school year

As this is an unusual situation, information could change rapidly. This page will be updated as more information becomes available.


The public health officers and county superintendents in six Bay Area counties have announced they will extend the suspension of in-class instruction through the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. This announcement comes as local public health officers continue to monitor and ensure that local orders to shelter in place with limited availability of COVID-19 testing are observed and followed. This decision means that SRVUSD schools will be closed, along with all other schools in the region, through the end of the 2019-2020 school year.  In addition, all special events, field trips and school related activities including Graduation, Senior Balls, 8th Grade Promotions and other end-of-year activities have been cancelled.

We will continue to provide meals for all students in need throughout the closure. Grab 'n Go meals are available from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays at three SRVUSD school sites.  The menu will be limited and all items will be prepackaged. Please see the flyer on this page for details.

Official District communications will be your primary source of information during the closure. In addition to being emailed, these communications will also be posted on the SRVUSD website and the official District Facebook page. Please read each communication so that you stay informed. If you are not receiving District communications and want to check the status of your email in our system, please contact communications@srvusd.net and we will help you. 

We are confident that our decision to dismiss schools will support our school community. We know you continue to have questions and we are committed to keeping you updated as we receive further national, state and regional guidance and directives.

The health and well-being of our staff and students is the single most important thing that we, as a District, are entrusted to protect, and we will continue to take that duty seriously for the duration of this unprecedented and unique health event. 

Coronavirus and the Schools of the SRVUSD

 


The safety and well-being of the students and staff of the San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD) are the District’s highest priority. In response to a novel (new) coronavirus, called COVID-19, that is causing an outbreak of pneumonia illness, the District is committed to keeping our community informed with the latest developments as they relate to our schools.

The COVID-19 outbreak began in December, 2019 in Hubei Province, China, but outbreaks are now occurring in other countries around the world. There have been a number of confirmed cases of novel coronavirus reported in California, including here in Contra Costa County, where the San Ramon Valley Unified School District is located.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and other public health agencies are monitoring this new disease. Contra Costa Health Services is working closely with its partners and other health systems to track the situation locally and has sent information about coronavirus to local medical providers, emergency medical services providers, and schools.

The SRVUSD is partnering closely with our County Office of Education as well as with local health agencies to monitor new developments with the illness and to ensure that we are following the most up-to-date guidelines set forth for schools in order to prevent and postpone the spread of the disease.
