School Closure Information

School Closure Notice

Due to Governor Newsom’s recent announcement to shelter in place, school is currently closed with a tentative reopen date of May 4, 2020. Families will be contacted by phone, and our website updated, as new school closure information is available. Information will go out via all-call to let families know when and where to drop off packet work. Please make sure to reach out to teachers via email if you have any questions on the packet work. Meals are available every Monday from 9:30-11:00am and will include breakfast and lunch to last 5 days per child. Service will be drive-through or walk up only with meals to be eaten off-site. We look forward to reuniting with our Douglas City Coyote families as soon as is safely possible.
