Dear East Side Community,
Attached is the updated FAQ for school closures and a letter from all Santa Clara County Superintendents. School campuses will remain closed for the rest of the year. However, distance learning will still be implemented with fidelity.
Thank you for your immense support and flexibility. Though our school buildings are not open for classes, the school year is not over. We are committed to working with our staff, parents and the community to continually improve upon our distance learning process. We are also working on acceptable ways that we can celebrate the end of the year. We will provide more information as updates become available.
Stay safe and be well.
Chris D. Funk
