Friday 3/20/20 Update

Dear BVUSD Families and Staff,


I hope you are all safe and healthy and were able to find at least some fun and relaxation during spring break!


In this unprecedented time of uncertainty, please know that your school district is here for you and your child! 


The Governor cautioned us that this could last much longer than we thought–even possibly through the end of the school year. That was a caution, not an order. This caution offers a call to arms to increase our preparation so we can provide your child quality learning opportunities in the meantime. We do not know how long this will last and we certainly hope it will not last throught the end of the school year, but we do know it will last longer than two weeks.

Now that Spring Break is at an end, here is the plan going forward:

March 23-April 3:  School Work:  Students will work on the packets they received from their teachers on the Friday before break.  If your child was absent and you either have not received or can't access the learning packet, please let your principal know and he will make arrangements for you to pick up the packet.

Monday April 6-until we are back at school:  We will continue to provide high quality work to your children as long as this lasts.  The faculty will be using these next two weeks to collaborate virturally by grade level and to prepare quality learning opportunities and support for your children. We will continue to update you as these plans develop.

Lunch:  Students can get drive through/carry-out lunch at any of these locations from Santa Rosa City Schools from 11:30-1:00 Monday-Friday beginning Monday, March 23: 

Elsie Allen High School 599 Bellevue Ave         

Lincoln Elementary 850 W 9th St 

Monroe Elementary 2567 Marlow Rd         

Cook Middle School 2480 Sebastopol Rd

Piner High School 1700 Fulton Rd            

Santa Rosa Middle 500 E St 

Lewis Education Center 2230 Lomitas Ave         

Burbank Elementary 203 S A St 

Brook Hill Elementary 1850 Vallejo St

I attach the frequently asked questions list from the County Office of Education.

Stay healthy and safe!
