Letter: http://www.egusd.net/covid-19-community-letters/march-20-2020/


YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLldqzHgv-_Q5gmCoz2E1ryPIzShWrGBEX

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through many logistical hurdles during this emergency hiatus caused by the threat of the COVID-19 virus. In today’s update, we would like to share the following information related to upcoming District actions and plans moving forward:

First, please know that EGUSD situational critical teams have been activated and will continue to be in place to work on a number of current tasks and future assignments. Currently, the following task force teams have been activated with current key objectives:

Food and Nutrition Team

  • Provide daily drive-thru meals available for pick-up at select locations throughout EGUSD.

Education Services Team

  • Work with teachers, counselors and students to successfully complete the 3rd Term/2nd Trimester. The team recognizes that there will be many nuances and situations that will need to be addressed.

Special Education Team

  • Collaborate with Special Education experts to develop a plan to address the educational needs of special education students.

Before and After School Daycare Team

  • Collaborate with educational partners and daycare providers to develop a safe pandemic plan that can accommodate daycare needs in line with national, state and county guidelines.

School Closure

March 13, 2020

Dear Elk Grove Unified School District Staff and Families,


Per the proclamation of a national emergency from the President of the United States and per the executive order from the Governor oF California, and per the Sacramento County Office of Education’s announcement of school closures, and per the Elk Grove Unified School District Board of Education’s declaration of emergency conditions on Friday, March 13, 2020, in order to protect student, family and staff safety and well-being from the COVID-19 threat and in an effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Elk Grove Unified School District Board of Trustees upon the recommendation of Superintendent Christopher R. Hoffmann, have declared that EGUSD will remain closed through April 3, 2020 and will continue to be closed through the District’s originally scheduled spring break, which ends April 11, 2020 for schools on Traditional as well as for Year Round calendars and April 18, 2020 for schools on the Modified Traditional calendar.


The District’s decision to take an emergency hiatus this past week from March 9, 2020 through March 13, 2020 and to continue the hiatus now extends the window for District families and employees to be able to adjust to current conditions and to prepare. All residents are asked to heed the State’s direction to adhere to social distancing measures and self-isolation if symptomatic of COVID-19.


During this pause, District officials will assess all aspects of the Elk Grove Unified School District’s learning system, business operations, facilities use, operational functions and safety and security needs.


Employees will begin receiving communication, assignment instructions and other employee-related information from the District starting today and throughout the emergency hiatus in coordination with their supervisor. All employees are asked to check emails and the District’s website regularly to stay current on District decisions and information.


Parents, students and families will continue to receive updates and information from the District regularly through email, by phone, through social media and online at www.egusd.net/covid-19.


The District’s plan for re-opening schools after the emergency hiatus will begin with a staff only day where all employees will report to their posts for a briefing and to prepare for the re-entry of Elk Grove Unified School District students.


Thank you,

EGUSD Classes and Activities Cancelled-March 7-13.


March 7, 2020


Dear Elk Grove Unified Families,

The public’s health and safety is paramount to Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD) and all of our community and educational partners. Friday evening, the Sacramento County Public Health Department (SCPH) confirmed that an EGUSD family was put on quarantine because of testing positive for COVID-19. After careful consideration and in light of the new information, effective immediately, the District will close its schools, cancel classes and any student-related activities from today, March 7 – March 13, 2020.

Please know that to date, no student or staff has tested positive for COVID-19.

At this time, we ask parents to make arrangements for their student(s) for March 7 – March 13, 2020 as all EGUSD schools will be closed, classes will be canceled and any student-related activities will also be canceled. An update on whether the school closures will be extended will be provided by the end of the day, Thursday, March 12, 2020.

This complex decision involved close collaboration and coordination with our Board of Trustees, labor groups, the Sacramento County Office of Education and the Sacramento County Public Health Department. We will be working closely with multiple community partners to coordinate and adjust planned events as needed. We will also move up our April Traditional/Modified Traditional Spring Break to the week of March 9 – March 13, 2020 to minimize the impact to student learning and any loss of school days. Future adjustments to the school calendar may need to be made.

We understand there are many concerns around COVID-19 and want to ensure families that we are working closely with SCPH for updates and guidance. For the latest information on COVID-19, families are encouraged to visit our EGUSD website, the SCPH webpage dedicated to COVID-19 (2019 Novel Coronavirus), and the CDC homepage.

For questions regarding this closure, please contact our Safety and Security at (916) 686-7786.
