  • COVID-19 UPDATE, SCHOOL CLOSURE

    We appreciate your patience and understanding as we move through this unprecedented time. You may be aware that Governor Gavin Newsom, in his update on the state's response to the Coronavirus, stated that it is unlikely that schools will open before the summer break. It is important to note that he offered an opinion and has not at this time issued an order for a state-mandated closure of schools. At this time, the opening and closing of schools is locally controlled by school district superintendents, based on guidance from the San Diego County Office of Education and the San Diego County Department of Health and Human Services Agency. Yesterday, in a guidance meeting for San Diego County Superintendents, Dr. Wilma Wooten, Department of Health and Human Services Public Health Officer, stated the current guidelines for San Diego County, which at this time are in place through March 31st. Based on this guidance, we are not planning to reopen DMUSD schools prior to Monday, April 13th. It is important to note that this may change, and if it does, we will provide notice right away. Please read the linked attachment for more details.
