School Closure Notification

March 25, 2020
 
Dear Los Gatos Union School District Families,
 
Thank you for your support and patience during these two weeks as we’ve rolled out our Remote Learning efforts to support learning during this national emergency. Our administrative team and teachers continue to develop the best ways to connect with students amid the ever-changing events around COVID-19.  
 
This morning the Santa Clara County Office of Education, in support of the Santa Clara County Public Health Department’s shelter-in-place order, extended the county-wide school closures until May 1, 2020, to help slow the spread of COVID-19. This was a collective decision of the Bay Area’s seven county health departments in collaboration with all county superintendents. All public school districts in Santa Clara County will follow this order. This means all LGUSD campuses and the district office will remain closed to the public.  
 
Our remote learning efforts will continue as the LGUSD staff develop additional plans for supporting the continuity of education for all students in our community. The food service plan, providing breakfast/lunch for any child 18-years and younger, will continue through the school closures.  
 
Our teachers and support staff are working to connect with and encourage students to learn every day. They are caring and passionate professionals who work diligently to provide one of the best educations in California. Your care and support of the staff are much appreciated and needed during these difficult times. I am confident that when we work together, we can meet this challenge and accomplish anything.  
 
Yours in education,
Paul Johnson
Superintendent
