ELK GROVE, Calif. – March 13, 2020 – 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. Hoffman, 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.
