Clarification regarding State Superintendent Tony Thurmond's letter dated 3/31/2020

Esparto School District families, staff, and community......Click here to read more

Yesterday, we received notification from State Superintendent, Tony Thurmond, regarding the possible extension of school closures beyond May 1st. And, as you may have observed, news outlets throughout the region ran brief stories pointing out key aspects of the notice.

The letter, in part, states, “Due to the current safety concerns and needs for ongoing social distancing it currently appears that our students will not be able to return to school campuses before the end of the school year. This is in no way to suggest that school is over for the year, but rather we should put all efforts into strengthening our delivery of education through distance learning.”

Please understand that the letter is not an official notice or directive, from Superintendent Thurmond, to close schools for the remainder of the school year. If the school district does receive an official notice or directive, we will communicate directly with our staff, families, and community on our website, through our social media platforms, and via an all-call.

During this time, we remain committed to doing our part to help “flatten the curve” in Yolo County and throughout the State. We intend to accomplish this by keeping schools closed through May 1st, ramping up our distance-learning efforts to begin April 6, and continuing to meet the needs of our students and staff in an extremely flexible and fluid environment.

So, to be clear, no action has been taken by EUSD to extend the closure of schools beyond our stated date of May 1st. As always, we will continue to monitor and re-evaluate the situation in addition to consulting with our district partners, YCOE and the Yolo County Health Department.

Aclaración sobre la carta del Superintendente del Estado Tony Thurmond del 31/03/2020

Familias, personal y comunidad del Distrito Escolar de Esparto.

Ayer, el distrito recibió una notificación del Superintendente del Estado, Tony Thurmond, con respecto a la posible extensión del cierre de escuelas más allá del 1 de mayo. Como habrá observado, los medios de comunicación de toda la región publicaron breves historias que señalaban aspectos clave del aviso.

La carta, en parte, dice: “Debido a las preocupaciones de seguridad actuales y las necesidades de distanciamiento social en curso, actualmente parece que nuestros estudiantes no podrán regresar a los campus escolares antes del final del año escolar. Esto de ninguna manera sugiere que la escuela haya terminado para el año, sino que debemos hacer todos los esfuerzos para fortalecer nuestra entrega de educación a través del aprendizaje a distancia ".

Por favor, comprenda que la carta no es una notificación o directiva oficial, del Superintendente Thurmond, para cerrar las escuelas por el resto del año escolar. Si el distrito escolar recibe un aviso o una directiva oficial, nos comunicaremos directamente con nuestro personal, las familias y la comunidad en nuestro sitio web, a través de nuestras plataformas de redes sociales y mediante una llamada general.

Durante este tiempo, seguimos comprometidos a hacer nuestra parte para ayudar a "aplanar la curva" en el condado de Yolo y en todo el estado. Tenemos la intención de lograr esto manteniendo las escuelas cerradas hasta el 1 de mayo, intensificando nuestros esfuerzos de aprendizaje a distancia para comenzar el 6 de abril y continuando satisfaciendo las necesidades de nuestros estudiantes y personal en un entorno extremadamente flexible y fluido.

Entonces, para ser claros, el EUSD no ha tomado ninguna medida para extender el cierre de las escuelas más allá de nuestra fecha establecida del 1 de mayo. Como siempre, continuaremos monitoreando y reevaluando la situación además de consultar con nuestros socios del distrito, la Oficina de Educación del Condado de Yolo y el Departamento de Salud del Condado de Yolo.

Sinceramente,

Dr. Christina Goennier

Superintendente
