Yesterday Governor Newsom declared a stay home executive order effective March 19, mandating individuals across the state to, except for essential services, remain in their homes to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Click here for the details. The order does NOT change our Grab and Go meal service or distance education, as these continue to be identified as essential services.
As part of Garden Grove Unified School District’s transition to at-home learning, the district is closing its schools and district office to the public effective Monday, March 23. The majority of GGUSD’s employees are working from home in accordance with the executive order. District staff is responding to calls and emails within 72 hours.
Schools have coordinated distribution of printed and digital learning packets and Chromebooks, and all teachers have plans in place to ensure students are supported while learning from home. Next week, GGUSD will launch an online toolkit packed full of resources to support students’ academic growth and mental health and wellness needs, as well as community-based services. We will continue to serve breakfast and lunch to GGUSD students at 13 locations from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday.
We understand that the current public health crisis has created many unanswered questions for families and students about this new educational environment we find ourselves in. Visit www.ggusd.us/coronavirus for regular updates. GGUSD will keep our families and students updated as we continue to receive new guidance and direction from state officials.
Thank you for your patience and support as we work together to prevent the spread of coronavirus and keep our community safe and healthy.
