San Diego Unified School District announces closures due to Coronavirus

CENTRAL OREGONIAN- Crook County School District closing schools through April 1

Teachers will continue to be in contact with students about their teaching plans and expectations.

Districts, like Stevens Point that have spring break scheduled for next week, will have to plan for two full extra weeks of schools being closed.

In addition, as The Ledger reported, district leadership was formulating a contingency plan, "representing every facet of the district", including instruction. This week, the U.S. Education Department issued guidance reminding districts of their responsibilities to serve these students, but experts said it will be a challenge. The order applies to public, private and charter schools.

The risk to the general public remains low.

Brown on Wednesday ordered the cancellation of events and gatherings of 250 or more people.

But not all public schools can afford to provide students with computers or tablets for the purposes of distance learning, one of several reasons officials at the state and local level offered in justifying keeping classes open.

The e-learning process will be asynchronous, meaning students and teachers will interact in different places at different times. Parent-Teacher conferences, practices, and all after school activities are cancelled immediately.

Israel closes most schools and universities due to coronavirus
These were the details of the news Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu calls for emergency government to combat coronavirus for this day. Israel has been relatively insulated from the coronavirus scare, with over 100 cases diagnosed so far.

That means the earliest students could return to school is March 30. All large group events and student field trips have been cancelled for 30 days.

Officials with the Wheeling-Charleston Catholic Diocese on Friday announced the closing of the state's parochial schools as well as the suspension of Masses until further notice.

She added the school-based health center operated at Toronto Elementary School by C.H.A.N.G.E. Inc. will continue to be available and the school district's office and school offices also will remain open. This decision has now been taken out of our hands and decided by Governor Evers so we will be following his mandate. "I urge everyone to make smart choices during this time and to do everything they can to protect themselves and their families".

And to our families, we thank you for your patience and trust as we work together to maintain some sense of normalcy in these hard times. The schools are set to reopen on Monday, April 6. "The first lens that we placed on this is how do we keep children safe in an environment that we might not be able to control".

"We understand that this remote learning plan will cause significant impact on your family, our community, and our staff".

Regarding school-provided meals, Broeren said at this time they are planning to do bagged lunches and have a pick-up site for families, but they are unsure if they will provide breakfast as well. Families who have not completed a survey are advised to do so as soon as possible. Goscinski said most students have access to the internet and for those who don't the district is working to create hot spots.

"There will be flexibility in either making this up after the e-learning period or working with those families to best meet their needs". For more on that announcement, check out our updated article.
