Update: School Closure Extended through May 1, 2020
Posted 3/25/20

Dear MDUSD Community,

Today, six bay area counties and public health officials have made a unified, regional decision to extend school closures through May 1, 2020. This is a coordinated response to the continuing expansion of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the bay area, and represents a best effort to reduce the number of affected individuals and to keep our communities as safe as possible.

Hence, while it pains me to inform our public of this information, we have no other recourse but to continue with our school closure through Friday, May 1, 2020. Mount Diablo Unified School District schools will remain closed through May 1, 2020.

Pursuant to Governor’s Executive Order 26-20, the Mount Diablo Unified School District, in collaboration with Districts from across Contra Costa County and our Contra Costa County Office of Education, will continue to expand the District’s Distance Learning programs to the best of our ability. Food services will continue at 9 locations district-wide, and payments to our employees will continue through this period.

Our district is, like many other districts, expecting guidance from the California Department of Education to address many of our unknowns. Our administrative team is working diligently to provide the best and as much guidance as possible to our staff, and we are proud to have seen a coordinated effort to deliver continued services at a safe distance. This is a difficult and uncharted territory for all of us, and it will require patience, growth, and understanding from all of us.

Our situation continues to evolve and we will continue to communicate updates with any new information—by phone, email, social media, and on our district website.

Respectfully,

Superintendent Dr. Rob Martinez
Mount Diablo Unified School District
